All so worried about keeping Iphones from being jailbroken, Apple leaves this vulnerability wide open. Great job Apple. Why don't you start spending less time protecting your bottom line and spend more time protecting your consumer. And Apple continues to be on my ban list. I will not buy an apple product.
So... My passcode is there just to annoy me everytime I wake up the phone from sleep mode... Apple, you should give out rewards to people who find these kind of security issues like this one, and maybe start a program like Mozilla did some time ago...
I never use a passcode. I just plan on having my iphone embedded in my arm.
Is this really a bug? Sounds more like an 'easter egg' or cheat code.

APPLE! Please do. Flash on my iphone would rock!
Apple is mostly looks, it's like a glass case with a lock and they expect you to store things in it which people do because apple tells them it's super safe... but it's glass case...sigh
Yes! A glass case that shatters
Why can't they just release a hotfix like 4.1.1 or something instead of waiting until 4.2 is ready?
What I find more severe is the fact you can completely reformat an iPhone even if it has a passcode, which should allow for activition if the SIM card is in. No idea how iPhone activation works though...
Besides these things apple is releasing new softwares
Another apple blunder apple is one company i don't trust and wish they would go under lol. Lets see they make a phone that is messed up and then blame the customer.
Also, don't forget they made a tablet with wifi issues and blamed the consumer's routers.
I honestly wouldn't pick on Apple so much if they weren't so stuck up about how perfect their products are. So I can't help but laugh at their misfortunes.
good job apple, making theft easier and easier...
That seems like a pretty obvious case that should have been checked by QA. "What happens when we hardlock the phone to interrupt an emergency call?"
You don't know what you're missing out on.
"Another apple blunder apple is one company i don't trust and wish they would go under lol."
I agree. I can't stand Apple and their owners tick me off. Apple is better than..blah blah blah.
Not a big apple fan but it'll be fun to mess with my machead friend. At least he's not pretentious about it.
This reminds me of the windows 95 hack that let you login to the computer without knowing the password.
im just tired of apple, im either moving to android or win mo 7 next phone.
wow idk how apple overlooked this flaw. for the pricetag on their gadgets, they should protect their users from these kinds of vulnerabilities.
lets go steal an iphone. haha kidding
Just tried it on my iPhone 3GS (fully updated) and indeed this works! just showed the guys at work and since the office is full of iPhones it is now causing a bit of a stire
Oh, but I do.. And it's not worth it..
apple: not good
Yeah - I've been showing this off at work too. Most of the folks here are saying, "who cares? Who said their stuff was secure anyway?" Guess I'm the only one really worried about people making calls to my CIO from my phone.
