What Just Happened?!

My mom has a 32gb iPhone 5 that she got on release day. Yesterday she was using it and all of a sudden it lost AT&T network and said searching, then a picture of a man popped up. When she got home she showed me and it still didn't have network, but the picture wasn't present. I'm not sure if she was on a web page and that popped up or what. I restarted the phone by holding power+home and it seemed okay afterwards. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Is it anything to worry about?

It must have been a FaceTime call that was mistaken by someone else account. It's along shot, but that could be an explanation. If she hit the accept button she was able to see the man in question. But it could only have worked if the AT&T network was up and running either on 3G data or LTE.

Haha this thread have me a few laughs. I'm thinking she had safari or Pinterest open and when she unlocked it she saw something from the page she was on.

Probably just Safari, but another possibility (totally a longshot) is that someone set up a "captive portal" on their open Wifi network, like you'd see at a coffee shop. When you join a new Wifi network (is hers set to connect automatically?), the phone tries to connect to a server at apple.com. If it can't, it pops up a browser window trying to display an Apple site. If there's a captive portal, its login page is displayed instead.

Someone tech-savvy could set up captive portal that displays a picture like that as a prank.

Nope, but the latent racism and misogyny is always fun.

Any chance someone 'accidentally' Face Timed her? If her phone is relatively new, it could be a phone number another person once 'owned'---and a F/T call could've come through.

I don't use FT too often, but that sounds like a possibility, as the 'Face' or camera shot of someone pops up when ringing for F/T, right?
