This morning, we talked to you about an update that was becoming available for iPhone 5 users on Verizon, due to a problem with the phone consuming cellular data when it should have been operating over WiFi. As it turns out, though, the problem seems to be much larger than just Verizon’s, upon reports of the same thing happening on AT&T, with the iPhone 5, older iPhone models, and even the iPad.
For now, these are just anecdotal reports, but a number of users are convinced that AT&T has been charging them for cellular data when they had their devices set to operate over WiFi. With this new evidence, it’s sounding more likely that this could be an issue with iOS 6 itself, rather than anything specific to Verizon or even to the iPhone 5.
With users reporting overage charges piling up to hundreds of dollars, we imagine it won’t be long before we either hear something official from AT&T, or see another update issued by Apple, this time hopefully fixing this issue once and for all.
