    I wish I could provide evidence, but my phone was just lying on my couch and I got a text. It immediately opened right up to the text app. I didn't touch it at all.

    Is this a known bug?

    Sounds like its possessed. Lol. Is there a possibility that you might have some type of VNC client installed? I don't know if that's possible or not.

    this is a 4S exclusive feature. I'm surprised you don't know about it.

    No it's not :) maybe you hadn't locked your phone before and the display just turned dark and when the message came in, it appeared to just have been opened directly into the app?

    Read the title and thought I was going to read a thread about a phone spontaneously combusting. Disappointed.

    I want a refund. I expected to see a picture of the phone with its innards strewn all over a lounge. :p

    It was most certainly locked, because the phone actually unlocked itself. I heard the sound. It went " -Tweet, Twee - CLICK " as in "half of a texting tone and unlocking sound.

    Come on man, don't put a thread title that has nothing to do with what happened.

    "my phone opened text app by itself" would have garnered less looks, but it would be more accurate.

    I came in here expecting a phone that completely fell apart while just sitting there.

    When someone sends an important text, iOS opens to the Messages app automatically.

    iOS has had this feature since iOS 4.

    I came in expecting you to have a Transformer iPhone. Disappointed.

    Nope, wrong universe. I've got a Millennium Falcon iPhone, though.

    And on this day, the iPhone became self aware.
