I have just arrived in Israel for a two week trip. I switched on my phone after we landed and was surprised to see a network message welcoming me to Palestine! After a couple of minutes, the phone adjusted itself and gave me a signal from Orange. Is this another of the iPhone 4 glitches?!
In fact, there was nothing wrong with the phone. Because Israel’s main international airport is so close to Palestinian territory, it’s not unusual for you to pick up a signal from there. It’s a reminder of just how small Israel is, you’re never very far from the border.
