    My phone has sent a text to someone (one word, correctly spelt, with 2 emoticons) while the phone was in my pocket. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it Siri mishearing something? Or is there a bug I need to know about? (I am iMessenger enabled and so is the recipient).

    Thanks

    Seriously??? Think about what would have to happen in order for this to occur.

    It's not your imagination. It's happens to me quite frequently - random phone dials, random texts (though just typing, not sent), etc. Seems to only happen when I'm at the gym and have my iPhone in the pocket of my nylon gym shorts. Best I can figure, odd as it may sound - and I'm not an electrical engineer, so forgive my guess if it's off base - is that static is building up on my gym shorts from moving around with it in the pocket and little static discharges are acting as if I'm touching the screen. It usually helps to hit the sleep button to turn off the screen.

    Lock your screen before putting it in your pocket. As stated it would take random noise matching instructions to "text xyz, this message, send" to actually send a message.
