    today out of a sudden, the word "special" appeared on top of my menu. (see picture)...

    The phone seems to work fine except for wrong time stamps on incoming messages but I was wondering, how was this special mode turned on?

    And what could I do with it????

    It is a 3G T-Mobile Germany Edition, Version 2.2.1 (5H11), no modification

    Sometimes on UK iPhones "O2" appears right in that spot (I think it's a relic of how networks plonk their names onto the screen of most mobile handsets, but don't quote me on that).

    Possibly this is something similar?

    As far as I remember a hard reset removes it.

    Maybe it's because you're special?

    Try a reset (hold both home and power buttons until Apple logo appears)
