    yup the iphone 2.0.2 has a huge security problem.

    Give you phone a lock password and make sure you set double tap to favorites.

    go to unlock your phone but hit emergancy call. next double tap the home bottun to go to favorites. know choose a favorite and, email them call them or even sms them.

    Do you know what this means? some random person can access everything on your phone. including emails, contact info, sms, and if you click on a link in mail it will give you access to safari!

    Note: This is NOT 2.0.2 specific. And only applies to the iPhone. And has NOTHING to do with Jailbreak.

    yah lol.

    Also i just realized on the plus side of this if you ever lose your iphone some1 can know access you contacts and call one of them to ask who the phone belongs to so they can return it

    It can be any app you set to doubletapping the home button.

    So being informative allows you to break the rules?

    or u can install Dock. when on emergency call, you can access it... so basically if u lose ur iphone and u installed Dock, then your screwed. with dock, they can use any application.
