iPhone removes messages/rearranges icons without restore
My technology-challenged friend reports that her iPhone 3G was sitting innocently on her desk, unhooked to her Mac, and the screen flickered. She unlocked it and noted that her red badge icons disappeared, and upon exploration she noted that her e-mails and texts had all disappeared. Her icons also floated back to their "virgin phone" state, although her third-party icons/apps remained.
I'm at a loss as to explain this. Anyone? I'm going to restore and rebuild the thing as an attempted exorcism, but I'm curious as to what this could possibly be!
