Yet another iPhone problem

We all know that problems that the iPhone 4 has had with functionality since the day it was released, with the star of the show being the inability of Apple’s mega-seller to even complete a call properly. Well now a glitch in iOS 4.1 and 4.2 beta has been spotted by eagle-eyed readers of tech site Engadget that means you can get around the screen lock very simply.

All you have to do it go to the emergency call function, which you can access without unlocking your screen, dial any old number before quickly hitting the hardware lock button, and you’ll have access to the Phone app and therefore call history, voicemail and the address book. You can also access the photo album if you select ‘share contact’ and then the camera icon. Check it out for yourselves, iPhone owners, or watch the vid below for proof.
