iPhone 4 users get rude wake up call
Apple has been rudely waking up iPhone 4 users with fake Facetime calls at two in the morning.
According to a number of reports, the troublesome iPhone 4s displayed an incoming call from a contact, but when users attempted to answer the call there was no-one there.
The phantom calls seem to be coming from the last person the user ‘Facetime’d’ with, even when the computer or iPhone that apparently placed the call was turned off. Spooky.
Some users have received calls from partners fast asleep beside them, while one person was called by himself – through another account set-up on his mac computer.
Reports have since surfaced around the world suggesting it was an Apple server problem, with rogue calls popping up at 9.30pm in New York and 6.30pm in Los Angeles, as well as 3.30am in Belgium.
As Facetime works over wi-fi networks, and is run by Apple, it is likely a glitch on Apple’s part, although the company is being reassuringly aloof about the whole thing and keeping silent.
While Steve Jobs seems to think that silence is golden when it comes to answering questions about problems with Apple products, we wonder how much he would like a 2.30am phone call asking for an explanation.
