I think you have the wrong end of the stick regarding this. There were 2 updates: the first one was an 'invisible' update that was essentially a preliminary installation to prepare your phone for the second update - which is the one you have. The 'update 1' thing is just a red herring.

Yes, it doesn't make much sense does it?

Your build number starts with a 3, which means you're on 2.1

1.X.X.X = Old 1.5
2.73.X.X. = Updated 1.5 (and 1.5 that has received part one of the update).
3.X.X.X = 2.1

Yeah, the OTA updates all preserve your data. Which is odd; the old firmware updates always wiped your phone clean.
