iPhone looses session info

I'm using session variables to check and see if a user is logged in or not.  

When a user logs in, I use: <cfset session.user_id = X?>  
Then on my pages I'll use: <cfif isdefined("session.user_id") and session.user_id neq "">User is logged in</cfif>

Works great for my users but I have a user with an iPhone that can't seem to hold the session info.  Immediately after logging in, he loses the session info and is required to login again.  

Anybody have any ideas why this might be happening?  I'm not sure yet if its my site or his phone.

could be the iPhone is set not to accept cookies in Settings > Safari

One way around this


"ColdFusion provides the URLSessionFormat function, which does the following:

    * If the client does not accept cookies, automatically appends all required client identification information to a URL.
    * If the client accepts cookies, does not append the information.
