    It shouldn't have any effect at all on your data. It didn't affect my data when I updated.

    All right but we have to update iOS via wifi only, or there is another way?

    You can download it to your PC and do the update through iTunes on your computer. Here's the Apple page on how to do it.http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4623

    Please be sure to do a backup (sync) first.

    I updated without backing up first, nothing happened, everything is fine. But backup should be the first thing to do when doing something with system! i'm just to lazy sometimes :)

    Yes you are right. First time i didn't back up my files and lost few of my data. By uploading to the latest version mostly nothing will happen wrong. bt as a safer side we need to bcak up first and then start the update process.
