    Hi folks, not sure if anybody has noticed but on many Galaxy s2's the pin lock screen is faulty. If you lock the screen using the pin code setting it locks fine, but if you double tap the Home button (that's the square button) it bypasses the code and goes straight to Vlingo voice command, from there you have a open phone. I have tested this on 3 SGS2's and it has worked.
    Note: this only works on the pin setting, not any of the other security options.

    My advice, don't use the pin code to secure your phone.:cool:

    I've never noticed it personally as I don't use the pin lock but I don't think this is exclusive to the gs2. I can't remember which Samsung my friend had but he showed me how he could bypass the lock just by holding the power button. Maybe just a Samsung thing.
