The series of steps required includes making a Voice Dial command followed by the quick ejection of the SIM card on the phone. This opens the recent call history which gives access to the contacts list. While in the contacts list, adding a photo brings access to all pictures on the unit. A simple disabling of the Voice Dialer from the Passcode Lock menu will eliminate the security hazard although we're sure that Apple will send out a fix in iOS 6.1.4.
I do too. This is quite the opposite of the Android situation. There is absolutely not a care about the rampant malware situation on Android. I have seen exactly zero news sites posting countless articles on the issue. Come on, stir up some paranoia! 2013 is the year of Android malware!

No jroc74. A flaw is a flaw. I don't use a passcode on my phone and I've never had in my whole years that I've own a smartphone. Once someone has a physical access of your device, nothing will be secure.
I will side with the company that is actually working on bugfixes.
What an aweful comparison!
It's more like if a burglar try to breaks in a house(GSIII/GNOTE II), he won't be able to steal anything as he can't go any further than the anteroom since all the other doors of the house is locked.
iOS 6 is another story, unfortunately..

So you're absolutely sure remanence doesn't affect apple products?
Goes to show how blind you are. Remanence (persistence of data on volatile memory due to low temps) affects pretty much anything that has a chip on it. Pleasew stop spouting whatever you're being fed through "news" and actually do some research on your own.
BTW you *should* know something's fishy when people try to freeze and dissasemble your phone. Just sayinl

Err... you don't need to freeze a hard drive (it's not a volatile memory unit). Getting access to the platters should be enough, but OHOHOHO good luck going through all forensics required to extract data from a locked hard drive.
No, swapping PCBs won't do the trick :)
And again: someone freezes your phone? seems legit.
Y are these people's have divided their own selfs for two things?? What with em ? U people's are just customers . So don't bark.. and just buy what you like .. Y u trying to produce something to unknown peoples (the peoples who working on those companies and owners ) u just buy what u like and what you can offer .. This is like insane .. Peoples fighting each others LOL .. Crazy peoples... If u wanna buy an iPhone then u buy it . If u like to android so be it .. [ but each and every1 should have known that iPhone came to market for the 1st (not android) ]um not an Ifan or something .. I like samsungs but they don't give such a great outfit to their product. Looks always like cheap plastic ..that's what they don't own THE QUALITY PRODUCT . Also androids gonna get lags at some points .. It's not the smoothest as much as it get older .. Some fancy features gonna die soon as they dropped or somthing. Also there is no good price to em ,. Always getting cheap in day by day .. In my country samsung s3 (used) almost going like 273 $ to 350 $ and it goes same with 3 years old iphone4 too.. That's what we call prestige that own by an apple.. I JUST COMMENTED WHAT IS HAPPENING AND DO NOT GET MISUNDERSTAND LIKE IM an "IFAN"
