9.2.1 IOS update didn't work
I'm new to the iPhone...
How do you stop IOS updates.
And how do you backup? To iCloud?

JM updates are automatically fed to your device, but you have to approve the update and log-in to your device and iTunes to install it. If you don't want an update, just decline to install it. It will nag you, but you can always decline.

Backups are in Settings. You can set your device to backup to iCloud or a computer. It's a really good idea to have a current backup so you can always restore contacts, apps, photos etc. iCloud provides 5 GB of space free, so as long as you don't have a lot of photos, it can be free, or fairly low cost. It's secure and you won't lose any content due to a lost or broken phone or device. It also can sync between a phone and tablet or other devices. Just go to Settings/Backup, and turn on iCloud backup. The rest is automatic.

Congratulations on your new iPhone.
Why don't you want to install the updates? They usually contain important security updates. I prefer to install updates through iTunes on my computer instead of over the air through the device. It has been my experience that I have less trouble that way. As Sleepfider told you, your device automatically downloads the updates and then nags you to approve the update. You can stop the notifications by doing the following:
1. Go to to the General tab in the settings app.
2. Scroll down to Storage and iCloud Usage (it might just say Storage on your device) and click on Manage Storage.
3. Let the list fully load and search for the iOS update that has been downloaded. It should be listed something like iOS"version number"update where version number is the version of the update. Delete the update file. Keep in mind that Apple will download the update to your device periodically or when a new update comes out. You will have follow this procedure again. It doesn't remove the red notification on the Settings app icon.

Being a belt and suspenders kid of guy I keep auto backup to iCloud set up in the device and periodically (whenever I make setting changes or add apps) hook my devices to the computer and update to the computer through iTunes, with the Encript local local backup box checked. This lets iTunes backup passwords and other important settings. I also click backup apps when prompted when I click Back Up Now. Using an encrypted backup through iTunes to restore your device can save a lot of time if you have a problem or get a new device. You just have to remember to backup to the computer when you make critical changes to your device.

I also sync my devices automatically to iTunes on my computer via wifi every night. iTunes has to be running and the computer turned on.
