I saw someone make a thread about this, which has since been deemed has fake. However, this really happened to me! woke up and the activation screen was on. I tried bypassing it, but had to restore back to ios 6. Surely, I can't be alone on this.

Also, just to be clear I updated without a UDID. Save your "this is why only developers should use betas" nonsense. I'm not complaining, just find it weird. Especially that it happened without me updating it.

Easily explained by the fact that your UDID isn't registered.

Also easily explained by the fact that this is an unstable and early beta and crazy stuff like this is more likely to happen.
