iPhone 4 FaceTime glitch is taking pictures of you

iPhone 4 FaceTime glitch is taking pictures of you
Multiple frustrated iPhone 4 owners have complained this week that their device's front-side camera is taking pictures of them when it is supposed to be inactive.

Those photos then show up on the iPhone screen when the user tries to start a FaceTime video call.

One angry owner said her FaceTime picture showed her in her office, despite never using the app while at work.

The glitch also freezes FaceTime, forcing owners to keep trying until it loads correctly.

Apparently those with the glitch are running either iOS 4.3 and iOS 4.3.1.

    Based on what is reported here, if the lady had a picture taken of her at the office, then obviously she tried to start the application at the office, at least. What shame would there be if she did make a FT call at work, though?

    I get comments like this all the time. "I didn't do it," yet here's all the logs and such to prove you did. I just shrug it off, not my problem.

    You're bought an iPhone, what did you expect, a low price phone with high performance and reliability? Just put a piece of black electrical tape over it and be done with it, or wake up and get an Android. But this is why I don't want a phone with a front camera, I knew something like this would happen, too much invasion of privacy if you ask me.
