    Iphone 3GS with latest upgrade.

    Standard calculator app. Try 250 - 125. I get 0. 250 minus 124 is fine, as is 250 minus 126.

    Can anybody else reproduce this bug?

    I think you're hitting the "=" key twice without realising it.

    It is showing the answer

    250 - 125 = 125. You must be pressing '=' twice to show 0

    Hahaha, clever problem solving, Scoob.

    I thought we had another Pentium FDIV bug on our hands haha.

    I guess if I would put the bong down for a second I might have figured that out myself....

    I must have done the calculation 10 times before making my post. Argh!!

    Lesson learned - don't use one's thumb to hit the Sum key.
