How to easily bypass iPhone 3G screen lock password

For all those who thought that the latest generation gadget would be less susceptible to security flaws. The iPhone has such a very simple way to By Pass and compromise on the Screen Protect lock.

Anyone can easily access all the iPhone’s functions without needing the password at all by following the simple steps below.

  • Lock your iPhone.
  • Now press of the “Emergency Call” key from the passcode entry screen.
  • Gently double-tap the home button.
Voila!! That's all it takes for anyone to get into your favourites, from which they can easily access the address book, from which they can get into the e-mail client (by tapping a contact’s e-mail address) or the browser (by tapping a URL) and you now know HOW PROTECTED your iPhone really is?

Seems like the engineers at Apple have miss judged the functionality of the Emergency Call feature and looks like the feature was there to help the crooks. I expect Apple to soon come out with a fix as it seems to be a simple programming mis-judgment. iPhone is already under fire from security experts for lacking important security features.

You can also tap the blue arrow next to a contact's name and you'll have full access to applications such as Safari, Maps, complete Contacts list, SMS, "complete" iPhone access, and Mail by accessing various entries on the Favorite's page, i.e. tapping their home page brings up Safari for a good browsing experience of the crooks at your expense.
