    This is why u install AndroidLock XT on your phone. When ur phone locks, u have to put in your certain pattern to unlock the phone. You dont even get the "emergency call" feature without unlocking the AndroidLock. (as long as you have MAX ATTEMPTS disabled, you will not get the Emergency Call screen)

    So why not just use it and save urself some hassel.

    Your timing hitting the call button and the lock button has to be perfect. I had to try it a few times before i finally got it to work.

    But the androidlock fixed that problem hehe

    Didn't work, tried it. Several times several combinations. All it would do is say emergency calls only. Bunch of crotch.

    Because it's not *** you have to type; it's ###. His video is revervsed for some reason.

    Gonna do this to my mates phone, who works for the Apple store. I bet he says something like "oh I already knew about that - we have already fixed it..." haha

    It's a security hole, I don't think it should of been 'released' by the person who found it. Now every major iPhone blog, website, forum etc has wrote about this. And at that, it's described (in detail) on how to preform the bug. This just makes it easier for anyone who has found/stole an iPhone to abuse it. Just my thoughts on it...
    On that same token we shouldn't release any news that could possibly in any way harm someone somewhere in the world. If we don't talk about bugs, they don;t get fixed. Simple as that.


    But the androidlock fixed that problem hehe
    Didn't even know about this. Loving it! Thanks!

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    This reminds me of the good old jailbreakme.com times and I don't mean the on from 4.0
    LMAO I remember those days, entering in a code to access safari from the lock screen. Ahh the beginning was fun and not so crowded with little 10 year olds asking questions about jailbreaking. That was when It was mainly adults who owned $600 phones...now everyone has a damn iphone.

    You dont have to use "###" or "***" you can type in any number and as soon as you tap call, lock the phone.

    On a more important note: I also have "Multifl0w" installed and I can access ANYTHING that is running in the background by double tapping the home button. I opened setting, set a code, closed settings.app (natively backgrounded) and then locked my phone. swiped to unlock...tap emergency call, dialed a random number "8713#8" tap call, pressed lock button....contacts came up. Double tapped home button, settings.app still running in background, switched over to the setting.app with the ability to remove unlock code, and the mother of all dangers "Erase All Content and Settings" <--to include your nifty "iGotya" app that was just released or MobileMe's "Find my Phone" feature! Your ******!

    Hope this helped =)
