    Is it the mobile or desktop version? Sometimes, I've found that you can't change the zoom levels of mobile site versions.

    I started having this problem recently with the iPhone 4. Pinch zoom is not working consistently on Safari.

    Same here... just got this pinch to zoom problem in iPhone 4.. not working in Safari

    I have the same problem this morning, pinch to zoom not working in Safari with Google search, Gizmodo, TiPb and even Macrumours plus Instapaper on my iPhone but flawlessly working on official Apple websites, BBC News. I am able to pinch to zoom in Photos, Maps, Mail without issues. So what gives?

    A glitch in Safari?

    Anything I should do to rectify the problem?

    I tried restarting the iPhone as it usually resolves these kind of little problems but that didn't help. I have iOS 5.0.1 so it has the latest software so I suspect a glitch in Safari. Any ideas?

    It has something to do with IOS5
    I just had to exchange my iPad for a new one & the new one still had IOS4 on it and ptz worked fine everywhere but after I upgraded to IOS5 it stopped.
