I have been trying to locate someone within Apple for months now to speak 
about IPv6 on their mobile devices. The wall of silence is impressive.

The android manufacturers at last respond, even though it's not always the 
answer I want :P

Yeah, it's like the Galaxy Nexus which has IPv4v6 in the menu but if you 
use it it asks for an IPv4 PDP context and when it gets it, it falls over 
and needs to be rebooted.

Any progress with this, to get this into mainline?

Then again, I feel we'll have proper IPv4v6 PDP context before there is 
any worthwile 464XLAT deployment, but for the long tail I would like to 
have 464XLAT in all devices.
