How to fix some mysterious problems.

I updated my iPad to ios 6.1 through my computer, so the file is already on there. I updated my iPhone OTA to ios 6.1. Do I need to restore it on iTunes even though the ios 6.1 file is already on the computer?

Yes, they are different files.

The long answer is, not only is 6.1 for any iPad and iPhone different files, they are different builds of 6.1. You can't use the 6.1 you downloaded for your iPad to upgrade your iPhone.
