    I have a password lock on my iPhone (as useless as it is, since it can easily be bypassed). I noticed that I can call any number I want from the emergency call screen (on the slide to unlock screen). Why is that? I thought it was just for emergency calls (i.e. 911)?

    P.S. It is an unlocked 1.1.1 iPhone on T-Mobile.

    A thought... Maybe it's because AnySIM modified the baseband to do the unlock.

    I believe the purpose of the lock is to lock the contents of your phone (your music, contacts, events, etc.) and not necessarily the use of your phone to call. In the event of an emergency, not everyone has to dial 911.
