    I was wiping the screen on my iPhone the other day when this message popped up... Didn't know you could send messages from the lock screen?

    Please help me shed some light on this mistery :D

    If you turn on Airplane mode, compose a message, hit send, then immediately press the lock button you'll get this message.

    The phone was at the lock screen when it happened... and no, I wasn't sending any messages.
    I must have pushed the home button by accident while I was cleaning the screen, hence the reason why the screen was on.

    Any ideas?

    LOL :D

    No... really... why would this alert appear on your lock screen if sending/receiving messages is not allowed unless you unlock the phone?

    Cheers :D

    Isn't there an emergency call facility from the lock screen? Perhaps OP accidentally triggered it.

    You can certainly make an emergency call from the lock screen... But AFAIK you can't send or receive messages.

    Dial *5005*78283# from the lockscreen's emergency phone dialer.

    Maybe you had a message notification and while you were wiping your screen you may have slid the message icon to the right, in which case you'd be taken to the messages app to reply. But since you can't reply because you're in airplane mode, it just stops you right there... at least that's what I'd assume, don't really have any evidence to support this.

    Why would it prevent you from reading said message though?


    I have never seen that either. Nor anything with that UI, in fact.

    LOL... There were no notifications on my lock screen prior to me cleaning the screen and since the phone was in airplane mode I don't see how it managed to receive any o_O

    Hmmmm... The mystery deepens :D

    That UI is the iOS 5 version of the old notification popup. They are rarely seen by default on iOS 5.

    I've seen it before when doing the process I described in post number 2 of this thread.

    Maybe you accidentally enabled Siri and somehow muffled sounds got to the point where your phone tried to send a message and therefore you got this dialog.
