    Default SECURITY BUGG!! Another one.
    today i fac3d another loophole for the iphone l0cked screen.
    You can make calls even if springb0ard is locked!! this is a new one for me.
    Correct me if i m wrong.
    my iphone v2.1, jb/act/unlocked using in India with Airtel.

    even though i paslock my springboard, the emergency call option is flawed. i can make a call to any one. Although this option shud have been locked for the emg number only, but its an apple product hence the FlaW!!

    attaching some snaps, in locked screen, made these calls -- 121 is the local customer helpline & tried calling an overseas friend with no prolem. except that i was on my locked scrren!!

    Yeah, it is as you say, although it is not new, at least in the sense that others have reported this before.

    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.
