    So I was getting off a plane yesterday and ran into an old friend. We chatted for a few minutes but we both had to go. Later in the cab, I pulled out my iPhone and his contact info was showing up in my "favorites" (note I only have 3 and it was right there at the bottom.

    I didn't have his contact info prior to this, didn't ask or accept it, and certainly didn't make it a favorite. . .? What setting or what do I have open that allowed this?

    Your friend has clearly affected your short term memory. Was he wearing a black suit?

    No, not without you knowing/accepting it.

    Bump can do this but you would have to bump the phones together.

    He touched your phone while you napped in the plane.

    Uh....yeah it does. Started with iPhone.



    I have to add, I've had people just appear in my favorites before too. In my case they were FT entries of ppl I don't think I know.

    Only if he send you his contact info via text/mms and you accepted it and added it as a favorite.
    Or might have been an MIB.
