iPhone 5 WiFi anomaly may affect carriers subscribing from Verizon and others

A problem that counts WiFi usage against the  data limit of subscribers may be affecting not just Verizon but also other carriers.

The malfunction of the software that used up through the data allotments every month of some of the users of iPhone may be having an effect on the subscribers on carriers excluding Verizon Wireless.

The previous week, users of the new iPhone 5 on the online support community of Apple have protested that they were driving through their data plans although they were consuming most of their time on WiFi.

On Sunday, the company has subjected a software update that repaired the problem for customers of Verizon WIreless. On other hand, Verizon issued a statement explaining that the anomaly is now fixed and nobody would be accused of any excesses connected to that anomaly.

However, it is not yet clear what’s the reason of the problem. Also, it remains vague on whether other carriers subscribing with iPhone 5 have had the same problem. But, there are complaints on the support page of Apple that is suggesting that the issue is not unique to Verizon only.

    That is a serious complaint. Data is expensive and I feel fortunate that i was smart enough never to leave my unlimited data package. I would be furious and want some sort of compensation for the overages I was charged for but not using.

    Why do you need to plug you iPhone 4 running iOS 5 to wifi sync it with iTunes? Also what does iOS stand for?
