    Safe Mode is a fall back safe state of the MobileSubstrate. It was designed so that if you had an error you could use the device and get back into Cydia and remove the offending software.

    If it only happens once then it is not really anything to worry about but if it happens lots then it is something you want to look in to. A reboot does clear it.

    Your friend has jailbroken his iPhone and as such apple won't be of any use.

    Sounds like it was jailbroken when he bought it. Does it have Cydia/Installer/Icy on it?
