iPhone 5 Bug Resulted In Cellular Data Usage Instead Of Wi-Fi On Verizon

1 October 2012

The Loop:

Verizon on Monday responded to concerns from customers about their iPhone 5 using data while connected to a Wi-Fi network.

“Under certain circumstances, iPhone 5 may use Verizon cellular data while the phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network, Verizon said in a statement provided to The Loop. Apple has a fix that is being delivered to Verizon customers right on their iPhone 5. Verizon Wireless customers will not be charged for any unwarranted cellular data usage.”

Small things get overblown. However, actual problems, like this one, are ignored by the press.
