    Posted this last year, but received no responses, so I thought I'd repost and try again:(

    Anyone ever have photos they didn’t take show up on their iPhone?
    3 times a few years ago, and then again today, when I connected my iPhone to my iMac and uploaded photos to iPhoto, I’ve had unknown mystery photos show up. I didn’t take the photos, and no one else has used my phone. 3 out of 4 photos appear to have been taken in another country. Anyone have a clue how this happens:confused:

    You do know that if you press and hold on a photograph in an email or SMS, it will save to your photo library. Could it be you inadvertently did this while reading an email? It doesn't take much and I've had to delete photos accidentally saved in just this type of situation.

    probably someone got access to your icloud account
    or somehow mistakenly accessed yours :p
    thus having his pictures sycned over to your phone

    try changing your icloud password
