Go through the private content on the FO's phone, such as messages, pics, etc.?
That's the first really new, fresh idea I've heard in weeks.
It almost sounds more probable than Faiq trying to make a call.
If the entire cell phone signal / re-attachment thing is true then I have long believed that it was as result of the Captain turning on the FO's phone to go through it for whatever reason (or to make it look like the FO was the last known person alive if a signal got out). Maybe he wanted to see the content of messages? Maybe he wanted to view the call log? Maybe he wanted to check out any 'interesting' pics the FO might have had in his phone? Who knows... But, I believe if the Captain did it, and the cell phone signal / re-attachment thing is true, it is because the Captain turned on the FO's phone - not because the FO was trying to make a call. That is just my opinion - my guess. If the Captain took care of the FO inside the cockpit then the FO's phone could only have been turned on by the Captain - by taking care of the FO in the cockpit it makes sense because then nobody on the other side of the cokpit door would have known what was going on - being late at night and dark outside, the Captain would not have needed to rush to take care of those on the other side of the door. Nobody would have been suspicious that anything was wrong if the FO was never locked out or in a position to raise an alarm. But... If the other hand played out and the Captain locked the FO out of the cockpit after telling him to go and get something, I still don't think the FO would have had his phone with him anyway. It should have been turned off and stowed - somewhere in the cockpit. I doubt the FO would have had his phone on him as it would have been no use. Regardless of how / where the FO might have been taken care of, I believe his phone was most likely always in the cockpit. IMHO if the Captain did it, and the cell phone signal / re-attachment thing is true, it is a result of the Captain playing around with the FO's phone after taking care of him.
