    I have found a minor bug in iOS 4.1 , it occurs when you want to add a contact to your contact list



    you can see the bug in the video bellow:

    http://sibeahani.blogspot.com/2010/10/favorite-contact-list-bug-in-iphone-4.html

    1. Open the favorite contact list,
    2. Press the + to to add a contact to your list,
    3. Search a contact
    4. Try to add it to your contact list

    Note : search a contact before adding, it only occurs when you search contact, by adding a contact without searching, nothing happens.




    we have done it three iphone 4 running iOS 4.1, same thing happed

    please try with your iphone and put the results

    I can't watch Youtube at work, but I followed your directions and nothing seems to be buggy. The contact adds as expected.

    The bug is weird. Sometimes it works fine and other times it crashes. Try different contacts. The Phone app in general seems to be hella buggy in iOS.

    Got it!

    It closes about 2 out of 3 times when using the search box.

    Good find.

    Sometimes even when you search it works fine...it did for me the first 2 times. But i tried again several times with different contacts and it finally crashed.

    I just tried it running 4.1 on a 3GS and could not get it to crash. It worked every single time.

    iphone 4 favorites list bug possible cause and solution

    i had the same problem: when i clicked on a name to add it to the favorites after btowzing it, it crashed back to teh main screen. but when i sctoll down the list and add a name, it adds fine. however, this problem was recently fixed as follows:
    i had boght my phone with a global software, not tied with any carrier. and it had "facetime" icon available on each contact. i live in the middle east region, where facetime is not active. so i did a phone restore last week, and when i did the phone restore, the facetime icone disapeared from all contacts. when the facetime icon disapeared, the favorites list bug disapeared as well! when i used to click on any contact to add it to the favorites, it used to give me the choice to add :"voice call" or "facetime" now that there is no facetime, it automatically adds it to the favorites as a voice call. so i guess it is something is the step of choosing between facetime and voice call that used to make it crash. now after facetime disapearing, i can normally from teh favorites page press the + button to add someone, search the contact using the search bar on top, click on teh contact, and it is normally added to the favorites as a voice call. i hope this helps or even makes sence...

    i phone 4 MMS bug

    i have found a bug and i wanna know if anyone else is having this:
    when i send MMS to a contact i choose from my contact list, after teh MMS is sent, in the messages list, the MMS sent doesn't show teh contact name. instead, it shows the contact number and gives me the option to add the contact as a new contact! although it is already in my contact list. this doesnt' happen with SMS.

    can someone test it and let me know?

    details:
    iphone 4
    OS 4.1
