After updating my girlfriend’s iPhone 3Gto iOS4.1 she noticed that the camera roll had a bug and was showing a large black box in place of some thumbnails. You could still tap on the blank black area and it would load the correct photo full screen, so the photos are still there, it just seems the thumbnails have become corrupted.
My iPhone has been acting strangely lately and here is yet another example; I noticed my network operator (O2) which is written in the top left of the iPhone screen as O2-UK also appeared underneath the clock on the home screen as O2.
At first I thought I was going crazy and that it must have always been there, but then I thought the icons looked like they’d been squashed together a little, I compared it with another iPhone 3G which didn’t have it and I also put the question out on Twitter to see if anybody else had seen this.
A few on Twitter [1|2]said it happened to them too for no apparent reason, it’s not like I was roaming onto another network whilst abroad, i’ve not even hijacked/cracked my iPhone it’s 100% stock. The folks on Twitter suggested it will clear itself after a reboot of the iPhone but I wanted to see if it would clear itself and within a few hours that’s exactly what it did.
I’m at a complete loss as to what caused this to appear but if you no anything about it please leave a comment below.

My iPhone 3G has started showing random “phantom” voicemails from “Unknown” dated 1st January 1970. There are three empty voicemails, 0 seconds long and they cannot be deleted.
Actually that’s a lie, they can be deleted and they go into the deleted messages folder, you can also clear the deleted messages, but as soon as you go back to the main voicemail screen they re-appear instantly.
Powering off and on doesn’t resolve the issue, I’ve not tried a force reset yet or last resort full restore.
A quick search of the web reveals many others have been having this problem over the last year, but as of yet I’ve not seen any explanations or resolutions.
