            A rumor has been going around that the iPhone 5 has a flaw. “…It was revealed that a bug in the iPhone 5 was resulting in the device using cellular data even when connected to Wi-Fi…” writes Karl Bode of DSLReports.com. His research shows that this new phone has a bug that leads to cellular overages. This means that the iPhone sucks out data and creates a big impact on that person’s company bill. These reports also say that this only happens for customers not with Verizon Wireless, but this isn’t entirely true. 7th grade iPhone possessor, America Davis says, “It is lighter and has faster internet.” She is not with Verizon Wireless.

“Verizon has acknowledged that their version of the iPhone 5 suffers from a bug where the device will consume cellular data, even if connected to a local Wi-Fi hotspot.” notes Bode, later. Many other owners have no problem with their iPhones. If fact, they are completely satisfied with them and think they are wonderful, except for people who are with Verizon Wireless. These people are disappointed with how their internet is working for them. Their internet runs very slow and they have unusual fees on their company bill.

Verizon Wireless claims they will give refunds to complaining customers because they take responsibility for the issues. They are making an update that can be run to get rid of overages. It is uncertain whether this update will completely fix the problem.

iPhone owners with Verizon Wireless are holding their breath and waiting for their updates to work. Their overages are very disappointing and they are quite mad at Verizon. On the other hand, people without Verizon are completely satisfied with their new phones. In fact, they are quite impressed with the outcome. It has much faster internet and is very light and portable. “It works just fine!” says 7th grader Olivia Hussey, who is quite satisfied.
