    The article doesn't say whether this is specific to the iP4.

    There have been a couple threads over the past few days about this.
    Seems like a bug in iOS4 (not sure about 4.0.1), just need to toggle the Data Roaming on then off again once you connect to your roaming carrier and it should stop.

    But O2's response indicates it's not a usual trait of smartphones and that it is indeed a problem. If it's an issue all networks are seeing with the iPhone, it's something Apple needs to address (which it may already have done). If it was a common occurrence among smartphones, O2 would not offer refunds to the affected customers.

    even with that fix it shouldnt be happening in the first place, it's not like a couple of blank emails showing up for no reason, this bug actually hits the user in the pocket and even though O2 has said they are refunding money the other networks may not.

    lets hope apple fix it sooner rather than later, as I said it can still cost users in the home network who dont have an internet add on.
