    I noticed last night that my iPhone constantly had a spinning circle. Even after closing my apps, I had it constantly spinning. Has this been pointed out as a bug? If it's constantly spinning, I wonder what it's fetching if nothing is running on my phone:confused:

    This is a glitch, I've noticed it mainly happens after syncing email but I could be wrong..

    Restart your phone.. This happens when ur downloading something and u stop downloading it in middle... Mag be anything from an app to music on iTunes .. Restart is 1 option or download that particular item which u stopped download ..

    So I restarted it and it went away. So all that time it was uselessly fetching/wasting data? I'm surprised this hasn't been pointed out. Hope it didn't kill my data plan :/

    I don't think it actively uses data, I think it just appears as if it us with the rotating orb..

    Quite a few threads have been started about it over the months. Pretty much with the same information as this one.

    Happens to me from time to time. I remember reading somewhere that it may be related to iCloud in some way. A reboot always fixes it though.
