Ghost ESSIDs in iPhone Aug 01 2011 02:06PM

I've been playing with some wifi stuff and, blame Vivek, I've been
using my iPhone as a victim. At some point I manually added a new
ESSID called fred. Since I did that whenever I turn wifi on on the
phone it probes for fred but I can't find anywhere in the iPhone setup
where I can edit or delete fred, it seems to be a ghost network that
it is doomed to probe for forever but never connect to.

I could set up an AP with this ESSID and maybe then it will appear and
I can delete it but a normal user wouldn't think to do that and could
end up probing for networks they know nothing about or have forgotten
about.

Has anyone else noticed this?
