Turning bookmarks off hasn't worked. Turning iPhone OFF seems to have some impact on it turning off the Cookies.

For what it's worth...
I have never had this problem on my 4S. I am set to "from visited" and it has never set itself to "never".
I have one GMail account set up in the mail tool, but I have NEVER visited GMail through Safari. I wonder if it is Google's sneaky messing with cookie settings that is at fault.

Solution use another browser
With "never" setting i can't log into this forum

It is good that apple & m'soft have bugs
it makes one look at alternatives
Osx and linux vs vista
Dolphin opera k9 diigo vs safari

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.

I had a i4 and now a 4s. i also have the ipad2 32Gb. All my devices randomly switch back to "never accept". i tried seeing if it only did it during a wifi sync or a sync when i had my devices physically plugged into my laptop but it that isnt it. i hadnt synced my phone for a couple days and when i woke up this morning it had switched back automatically. This is very aggrevating. I am going to schedule a Genius Bar request.

I suspect it's a problem with Safari, not with the iOS devices.
I have the exact same problem, the major difference being that it happens on my MacBook Pro and Mac Pro (hasn't happened on my iPhone 4 yet). On the Mac, just Safari has this problem (Chrome and Firefox work fine).
It's gotten to a point where I now hardly use Safari and have switched to Chrome and Firefox. Perhaps one of the alternate browsers for iOS would work?

That's good to know Paul, thanks for the input.

This seems to work. I've been over a week without this issue. My (somewhat educated) guess would be that something google apps are doing related to cookies is triggering the built-in fraud warning system. I hope I'm not exposing myself to any sort of shady behavior by having fraud warning off though.

That might be the case for the Mac but im not sure that would cause it on my iPad or iPhone4S or my wifes iPhone4

I thought this whole thread was about an issue on iPhone/iPad....
following @ForTheLoveOfHardware's steps solved my issue on iPhone.

I upgraded to iOS 5.1 (iPhone 4S White) a couple days ago and so far so good. I also noticed they fixed the issue with not copying playlists' order from iTunes, so maybe they fixed this Safari bug, too.

i updated as well and still having the issue on all three devices one of which is my wifes and on a seperate account so that tells me it isnt a cloud or sync issue
