Just another voice to this growing crowd...i've been seeing the same problem, not only on my iPhone 4, but with some of my clients as well. Hoping for a solution soon!

I had the same issue. Every time I synced with iTunes my Safari browser settings would be changed to "never accept cookies". This affects the Safari browser and any app that uses built-in browser to work. An example would be the Best Buy Reward Zone app. I have an iPad and iPhone; both through work where we utilize Exchange email. The iPad never has the issue despite having the Fraud Setting turned to On. Both my devices are Verizon based. iCloud doesn't seem to have any bearing on it either.
Go to Settings > Safari > Fraud Warning > Set to "Off"
Of course, you will also need to make sure you set Accept Cookies back to at least "From Visited". This can be found at Settings > Safari > Accept Cookies > Set to "From Visited"
Try a sync in iTunes now and see if it sticks.
There is a correlation between this and the Safari Safe Browsing function that occurs during an iTunes sync. You can see this step during a sync at the very top of iTunes. Hope this helps.

By Jove! I believe that has done it! Thank you for that. I have been banging my head against the brick wall of cookie resets. I'll be certain to respond to this thread if the reset occurs again.

I was having this intermittently but it has stopped for no known reason. However, I have my Safari web site fraud warnings ON, and I sync with iTunes, so that's not necessarily the issue. Or there could be >1 issue happening.

It looks like this may have worked, ForTheLoveOfHardware. I'm suspicious, though, so I'm going to give it a week to see if it sticks. Thank you!

I appreciate your efforts however even if works why would I want to switch an important feature such as fraud warning for the occasional cookie setting switch?

you will need to maby restore the iphone

No, zacapple. Restoring doesn't fix the problem. I've found that out plenty of times. But, Fortheloveofhardware, is on to something. So far no issues after I turned the fraud warning to off.

Why would you want to disable an important feature like Fraud Warning? I would disable it when it prevents my device from working correctly. I weighed the risks of my web surfing habits with this choice. I don't go to or search for questionable items on the Internet.
If you like to gamble, search for ****, or get "free" music/movies then you might opt for the Fraud Warning as a more useful feature. However, I have quite a few apps that use web based username and passwords. It took me a few frustrating attempts to get an app to work before I realized this setting had been changed. I have an Apple device because I want the device to work. There are quite a few other frustrated users here that can live with this choice till Apple gets the features functioning as desired by their customers. I posted for them and so I could get my Scramble with Friends working again. Game on!

Yeah... why do we have to sacrifice one feature vs another one, just because Apple hasn't tested this properly in 5.1... Let's occupy cupertino and demand they fix this
Currently Being ModeratedMar 1, 2012 3:41 PM (in response to ForTheLoveOfHardware)
Well, I turned off the Fruad warning and reset my browser cookies to Accept From Visited on my iPhone and I thought it was working, but ... the very next day, here, the cookies reset themselves to Never. Any other ideas anyone has is appreciated!

ForTheLoveOfHardware, you suggestion did NOT work... FYI, Thank you

Since the operating system update, I've not had problems with the "Accept Cookies" resetting itself to never. Whew.

Agreed. This problem seems to be resolved.
