Okay to say that a Cloud wifi hotspot killed my iPod is exaggerating somewhat, however it did kill Safari for a while and certainly wasn’t easy to sort out.
I had used my iPod touch at a free wifi hotspot which used the Cloud network.
I had signed in and used the web and no problems.
A few days later I wanted to use the web again on the iPod, but regardless of which site I tried to use whether it be entered manually or through a bookmark, Safari on the iPod just reverted back to the Cloud login page!
I couldn’t log out as I was not connected to the Cloud.
So I switched the iPod touch off and no luck, it still revered to the Cloud login screen.
Now I was getting annoyed.
I knew it wasn’t a connectivity issue, as I could use e-mail and other internet functions on the iPod, but could I use Safari? No I could not!
In the end, I worked out that if I managed to stop the Cloud page from loading, I could get Safari working again.
It was a really weird error that would not be resolved easily, but at least I resolved it without needing to restore the iPod which is where I was going.
