The latest version of iOS is 5.1. My advice is to plug your phone in and open iTunes. If it tells you there is an update, go for it. iTunes will copy the 'entire' contents of your phone to your Mac or PC (you may need to check this in the summary page of iTunes, to make sure it is not going to backup to iCloud), it will then zap the content, install the OS update, reboot the phone and then copy everything back on to it.

I updated a few days ago with no issues at all.
