    Default Updating carrier setting - this does not mess with the FW right?
    I've got an Apple unlocked 3GS where I've now use a Vodofone UK SIM. As this is not on the network I purchased the phone on, it does not have the APN and other settings for other networks (though I'v entered these manually). Vodafone customer services suggested I plug the in phone and run iTunes with their SIM in, and I've indeed got a prompt asking if I wish to update the carrier settings. Before I do this I have two questions:

    1. This will not "secretly" install FW 3.1.3? I'm on 3.1.2 JB now and wish to remain that way.

    2. With the carrier settings updated, it will still work with my original carrier as before? I assume the iPhone OS is clever enough to use the settings applicable to the used SIM?

    More info about the carrier settings updates: About iPhone carrier settings updates in iTunes

    Thanks!
