Overages...

That Verizon will be forgiving...

And if you have a Verizon iPhone5 - go to Settings>> General>> About>> -- you should get a prompt to update carrier settings... do that - then, reboot your phone... go back to the screen you were on, and verify the "Carrier" says 13.1 and you're good to go.

Not so much Apple as Verizon...

The "bug" was in the config file pushed out on the Verizon network to Verizon iPhone 5's...

Not in the same category as the issues with maps.

I guess Apple has now joined the other companies that use the early adopters of their new product releases as their beta testers.

I see Garmin get accused of doing that same thing quite often on this forum when problems pop up on new models they released.

When car companies do recalls... are their customers beta drivers?

Stuff happens. It's fixed. Get over it. Move on.

The difference between a "Bug" and a "Feature" is the former is undocumented.

What, no typical "you're holding it wrong" response from Apple to its sheeple?

Here we go again . . .

I'm a bit disappointed - but certainly not at all surprised - that this subject has turned into another typical "Us versus Them" Apple thread.

For the non-Apple people, the minions of the Devil have struck again. For the Apple fanboys, those minions *actually* walk on water, and comments about Apple's flaws are all due to jealousy.

Although some people might prefer to think otherwise, the staff at Apple are human beings. Like all human beings, they make mistakes. It's not the end of the world.

Of course, if Microsoft were to ever make a mistake, that probably *would* result in the end of the world! smile
