    Ahh, You beat me to it. But yeah, This is a very serious security flaw. It defeats the purpose of having the lock. Dose this also happen with all previous version of the iphone firmware?

    This was first found earlier on a thread here, which both Macworld and Gizmodo pointed it out after a user here found it, here is a link to his thread, please use a search in the future:

    I'm not sure....I have 2.0.2.....but I just could not believe this when I read it....anybody else that has something other then 2.0.2 does it work on yours?

    At least for right now there is an easy work around...just change it to go to your ipod.....

    Dude read the link provided to you above. The other thread clearly shows it is something you can do in 2.0.1 as well. I know this because I a) read b) noted it myself. ;)

    First: I'm sorry I didn't do a search first I didn't even think about it.

    Second:Nicolasdec is right and there is multiple posts about the same discussion all the time (tho I didn't mean to create this) so you should simmer

    Third: If you have such a problem with this posting then quit posting to it!!!

    If you would notice the times of the posting I was in the middle of typing my post when the link was posted so I didn't catch it in time...

    Thank you very much for the information tho.....I hope they fix this in 2.1....
