I have an android phone, a Pulse Vortex, and I recently plugged my earbuds into the phone to listen to music. But when I then powered on the phone, instead of taking me to the home page, a strange menu I had never seen before came on the screen, with all kinds of dire warnings. In trying to get out of the menu, I clicked on something and saw the message "Data Formatted". The nest thing I knew, all my data was erased. I mean, are you freaking kidding me? You can delete your data just by plugging in an earphone? WTF?

Yes, that is correct, but what I want to know is, why did that menu appear on my phone when I plugged in the earphone? Is a strange menu supposed to appear on the screen when you plug in an earphpone?
