    I was wondering if you guys have experienced this problem yourselves. When I plug my iPhone 5 in at work (Windows 7), it allows me to view all the media on the phone while it's locked. Shouldn't the media be locked as well or does that only apply to Mac's? I can't do the same thing with my MBP.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure cause I don't have any kind of "lock" on my phone right now but since you mention it, I think you may be right... interesting.

    Mine does the same but so did my 4s. I use my phone at work to take photos. At home when I plug my phone into the computer iTunes launches and so does iPhoto. On the work pc computers just the startup launches indicating that it located my phone and gives me the option to view media. Not a bug more of a feature if you ask me.

    I would think that when my phone is locked that it wouldn't allow Windows to read my media before unlocking..

    Nope. The camera roll is available whether the phone is locked or not.

    Yes sorry I misread. Yes the camera roll should be locked if you phone is locked.
