Just a warning to iPhone users - Has anyone noticed that the iPhone (3GS) will make a call using voice command and head phones even when the phone is passcode-locked.

Has anyone found out how to sort this issue. Otherwise it kinda semi defeats the purpose of locking. Data etc may be safe but someone can call england for 2 hours.

In Settings, choose General > Passcode Lock and turn Voice Dial off. Unlock iPhone to use voice dialing.

Its on the apple website......

And having to touch the iPhone to use a hands free function kind of defeats that purpose too...
