Apple iOS 6 bug causing big data bills

Last week the Internet was ablaze with reports about purple haze issues with the iPhone 5's camera, a problem that occurs when the camera is pointed toward a bright light source ike the sun.

Now ZD Net reports that a bug in Apple's iOS 6 is causing massive data bills for some users, as the phone continues to use mobile Internet even when connected to a WiFi network.
Apple has not really acknowledged the problem so far, though it quietly fixed the problem for Verizon customers in the US at the end of September. But the issue is still affecting Australian iPhone users, with many turning to Apple's support page, the telco's own discussion forums, and broadband forum Whirlpool for answers.

One Whirlpool user said that using an iPhone 5, they had managed to use 5GB of data in a single week and had received a bill from Telstra for AU$1,300. One Vodafone customer said that they had used 20GB and was looking at a massive AU$6000 bill.
