Default Another iPhone disaster

The phone is using up customer's data plans rapidly even while they are hooked up to wifi. Who wants to bet this isn't a glitch, but something actually planned in the back rooms with the telecom companies?

You just have to touch two iPhone 5s together and the glitch goes away. See they had that feature

Since this technically isn't an Android related issue, I'll move this to the lounge for discussion. I don't think it's a Telecom conspiracy but it's definitely an issue that Apple needs to address. That sucks for the iphone 5 users if this glitch is wide spread since a lot of them probably gave up their unlimited plans to upgrade.

Yikes!!!

It's a carrier problem and extends to Android users as well.

I changed the thread title, maybe those not interested in iPhone news will be concerned as well.

I have not heard about this happening with Android. Do you know which phones or which carriers are being affected?

Yeah, ditto for me, EM. I heard only about iPhone users having this issue.
