    I was trying to download wallpapers onto my iphone form www.deviantart.com and every time the page is about to finish loading it closes the browser automatically.

    Is this because there are too many images on that page and att is limiting bandwidth?

    No, I am using wifi and it still boots me off. All other webpages seem to be working fine.

    This webpage has a lot of wallpapers on it. You think ATT kicks user's off?

    If you are using wifi then it has nothing to do with At&t. Try rebooting and see if that fixes it.

    Sounds like you are running out of ram. The phone is trying to cache all of the images on the page and is running out of memory. Once you get to the image you want, hit the address bar to stop the page from loading the rest of the images.

    i could be wrong, but i'm pretty sure ATT or any other carrier do not have the power to crash/close browsers on handsets. it's more likely that deviantart has changed its mobile page some how and its no longer stable with the iphone version of safari.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    So how are you all getting your wallpapers? Just emailing it to yourself?

    What resolution should we get for the iphone?

    You are experiencing a bug in Safari. It should not happen. Therefore, you should report the bug to Apple. If you are a developer or have an ADC membership of any sort, use http://bugreporter.apple.com/ otherwise use the feedback form at http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

    Its not AT&T, it is either a bug in Safari or with the website.

    no, i think it's the site rather than safari. i'm pretty sure it has worked fine since 3.0 was released.

    The site works. Obviously, the site was down or something last night.
