Apple and Verizon Wireless have made a small software update available to the iPhone that resolves Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity problems. The error inadvertently caused Verizon iPhone 5s to connect to Verizon's data network even when a Wi-Fi network was available. This resulted in some customers seeing large data usage attributed to their Verizon account when they believed they were using Wi-Fi. The update resolves this issue, and will allow the Verizon iPhone 5 to use Wi-Fi instead of Verizon's cellular network when Wi-Fi is available. The carrier settings update can be initiated directly from the iPhone's settings menus. The new version of the Verizon carrier software is 13.1. This update does not apply to the Sprint or AT&T variants of the iPhone 5.

Poor Form

I don't care what anyone thinks, this last OS release from crApple was sloppy sloppy sloppy. Irregardless of the maps fiasco there were so many errors and problems it made a mockery of the whole 'it just works' mantra. Shameful..and yes, we have crApple in our house (lovely wife, what can I say lol). 'Da bean counters are slowly gaining control.
Apparently you don't know what "carrier settings" are.

customers would not need this update anyway since Sprint still offers Unlimited Data.
yea but being a sprint customer (not for much longer), sprint does have unlimited data but unless your the lucky one out of there millions of customers that gets a 4g (even if its only wimaxx) that can actually use more the 2gb of data on there painfu...
