iPhone bug in iOS 4.1 - bypass any lock screen

As more and more people are using iOS 4.1, more and more users are also trying to bypass the security mechanism the iOS is supplying.
A new bug has been found that allows people with iOS 4.1 to bypass the locked screen and reach some apps.

To bypass any lock screen simply hit "emergency call", then enter three pound signs, hit the green call button and immediately press the lock button and you will have bypassed the security feature on the iPhone. "That simple procedure gives a snoop full access to the Phone app on the iPhone, which contains the address book, voicemail and call history and even your photo album (now that this bug is on the wild , maybe other people will find that they can reach more apps and do more stuff)
To get to your photo album, selecting "share contact" and then the camera icon will give you access to the photo album.
