Not a bot -- a phone somethingorother:

71.sub-174-252-2nn.myvzw.com
Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 5_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/534.46 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile/9A334 iPhone3,3 BingWeb/3.0.952.20111012

Scant info on what it does, just that it gets around -- but not much. Only 187 G results for "BingWeb/3.0". Presumably, it's MSN Bing-related.

myvzw.com = My Verizon

Most likely an indicator of the new Bing search App Microsoft released a few months ago for smart-phones.
They likely sling the BingWeb indicator into the browser string when it is from that App.
Guessing here.

Yep, yep. [itunes.apple.com...]

Point is, if people limit major SEs' proper names' to specific UAs/IPs (as I do with Google anything), that string "Bing" could be a problem.

How about Bing Translator, of course absent an identifying UA.

It's too much of a coincidence ;)

They've got a ### translator now?

Well, ### that. I'm not going to pore through the UAs and un-block the MSIEs arriving from Bing IPs on the remote chance that there's a bona fide human at the other end. I've already had to wrangle my hotlinking routine so the humans using g### Translate for picture books can see the pictures.

Is it always MSIE 8? If so they may be in the clear for a bit longer. The plainclothes robot currently uses MSIE 7, though it will probably take one step forward when MSIE 10 becomes common.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, lucy24

The plainclothes Bing bots are packing MSIE 8.0 strings like crazy. Almost more than MSIE 7.0.

Plenty of both pounding away on my sites today.
Plus the ones that are honest and actually tell me they are BingBot.
