I keep a series of 'notes' in my iPhone about when to pay bills, new ideas, and general things to remember. Today as I entered a new item, the entire page vanished and a single line appeared at the top:

"What do you think of that?"

Can anyone explain what happened? I am working in a coffeeshop, but the phone isn't connected to the internet. This is mostly irritating because my long list is gone now, but what's with the question? Has anyone else's iPhone behaved so strangely in the past?
