Mix: iPhone bugs, Duke, Safari, iTrapped

Enthusiast site Apple Hound has put together a list of known iPhone bugs. 68 bugs are listed, ranging in severity from “UI/Usability” issues, up to problems that may cause “Crash/Hang/Data Loss.”

iPhones are causing problems for Duke University’s wireless network. “The misbehaving iPhones flood the access points with up to 18,000 address requests per second, nearly 10Mbps of bandwidth, and monopolizing the AP’s airtime.”

SPI Labs is encouraging iPhone owners not to use the device’s Safari feature that allows dialing of numbers found on the web with a simple tap. The group claims that this feature can be exploited to perform various attacks, including preventing the phone from dialing.

Flickr user Stillframe has uploaded a set of photos named “iTrapped,” showing his friends appearing trapped inside his iPhone.

About the iPhone bugs…

I was experiencing just about every one of the scenarios where the iPhone would crash in various applications.  I simply did a restore job through iTunes and haven’t had a single crash or hang up since.  The UI issues are still there, but everything seems to run in a more stable manner.
