    No I turned my phone on and off and then on again cause my service was all wacky. Then this screen popped up and I took a screen shot of it and uploaded it to photobucket to post on here.

    I have never seen that, ever. Is your phone jail-broken with a theme?

    Nope, nothing like that. This came on after the phone was already on. I just updated to 3.0.1 2 days ago. I was very perplexed lol maybe a glitch with the software update?

    I haven't ever seen that before.. Very strange if your phone isn't jailbroken.

    Someone is playing a joke on you.
    Its a form of a message someone send you. Cant remember what they call it.

    No it's not. I didn't get any messages. My phone litteraly turned on and this screen came on and I hit that back button. And I'm in airplane mode cause my battery is almost dead and I'm at work with no charger lol

    Flash message. Could well be, just weirdly coincidental timing.

    It is a flash message, it is from AT&T however.

    Actually that is the image of when AT&T sends you a message. When I accdentally disabled 3G on my iphone (by putting the card and activing a 2G), i put it back, called ATT, and then they showed that. Afterwards, the guy on ATT told me to restart the phone.


    So it's send to you by most likely AT&T. Most likely to reset the connection between your sim card and the network.

    I'm very serious about this not being a joke or message. My service was suspended because I forgot to pay my bill. Then I paid it, the service was restored but my Internet wasn't working. So I shut the phone on and off twice then right when the phone turned on this is what came up. How would you send a message like that? I hit that "back" button and it brought me to the home screen. Any other ideas, since everyone thinks I'm screwing around???

    Dolp! Back button fail!

    I am curious about these flash messages though. I never heard of them. I would have a TON of fun with these and my non techsavvy friends :)

    Why would you even waste our time with that image you made?

    Flash SMS would be nice on AT&T ... I've been considering moving to the UK just to get it. ( Specifically Swansea ) ;-) ... I love that place.
