I’ve had my iPhone for a few days now, though Orange haven’t got their colourful arses in gear to supply me with the PAK code required to get my old number working yet. Looks like they’re sticking to the “allow seven working days” mantra, whilst also sticking two fingers up to me. There must be a line in their systems software that says “wait 5 days” before then actually sending out the letter I need. But I digress.

The Calendar app on iPhone has a major flaw. If you’re part way through entering a new event to the calendar and a call comes in, it simply discards all the data you’d entered. When you next open Calendar it implacably stares back at you with your events neatly listed, but no memory of what you were busy entering before you were interrupted. The same is true when you press the home button, perhaps to flick to Mail in order to get a piece of information that you wanted to add into your calendar entry. Actually this is how I discovered the problem, since I don’t get many calls. This is a disaster and violates a prime iPhone app programming law: reinstate things how the user left them.
