iPhone security alert: your lock screen can be bypassed!

This YouTube Video shows how you can bypass the iPhone lock screen to make calls and list contacts. You can even browse photos if you attempt to add a photo to a contact.

While you can’t run any apps or do anything other than work with contacts or make phone calls, the facts is that anyone who watches this video can unlock a part of your iPhone without knowing your passcode.

I’m sure Apple will have a fix soon but until then, don’t let that phone go to the wrong hands!

 

iPhone 5 won’t do data while talking

Though I was leaning to NOT get the iPhone 5 (just not enough coolness over the Android competitors like Galaxy S3 for example) this is definitely a deal-killer for me:

On providers like Verizon or Sprint, iPhone 5 will NOT transfer data while you’re on the phone.  (aka simultaneous voice and data).

iphone 5 can't do voice+data

Put a fork in it.  It’s done. For me.

I’ve had a Sprint EVO 4G (yes, the original one) for 3 years now and even that phone, ancient by today’s standards, can do voice+data (admittedly that only works on 4G data but still, it works).

So, sorry Apple.  I’m looking for an UPGRADE, not a DOWNGRADE.  Android here I come!
