Since then, when I switch from cellular to WiFi, it attempts to connect to one of two different websites so far, appleiphonecell.com or ibook.info — both of which are Apple websites. if I cancel, it brings me to a notification that my wireless is not connected to the internet and would I like to use the phone without internet access. Initially as it would not connect to the WiFi without going through this process, I unblocked appleiphonecell.com. The URL redirects to apple.com. I'm about to unblock the other, but it seems odd that every time I want WiFi the iPhone "calls home". Makes me wonder what else it's doing. Anyone else noted this?
