Your iPhone dislikes "Flickr"

Some have said that the iPhone 2.0 software is buggy. We say, "Bugs? What bugs?"

Today, reader Alfred has identified one that you can try for yourself. Open up Notes and attempt to type "Flickr." You'll find that you can't. The 2.0 software replaces "Flickr" with "flicke" or "flickt".

Here's the weird part: you can't even select the "r" button. Sliding a finger from "e" to "t" skips "r" entirely.

Here's the obvious, inelegant workaround: delete the "e" or "t" and type again. For more odd (and useful) iPhone tips, check out our iPhone 101 series.

Thanks, Alfred!
