    It's an error message.

    Can you tell us a little more about what happened before that message popped up? A screenshot doesn't really tell us much.

    It looks like the OP may be attempting to send a message that uses one of the new Message features that are not standard text supported on other platforms or devices.

    But to paraphrase TSBRICK posting a question without any list of actions taken, context or details is all but pointless since there are too many variables to cover.

    So the correct answer to the OP question is: A screen shot.:D

    No, that's not from the Messages app. I believe the phone is connected to an Android device (or a non-iPhone device being mistaken for an Android device) through Bluetooth or USB (?)

    The screen shot is of the Message app.

    Possibly came up if the user tried to use the camera connection kit and connected it to an android phone using a USB cable.

    The Messages app might have been in use at the time, but it's possible that the error/message that came up was in relation to something else and just happened to come up while the Messages app was being used at the time.

    Yes but that's a system-wide notification. The app open in the back has nothing to do with it.
