    Apparently you can bypass the lockpattern by hitting the Home Screen during an incoming call:

    Meh, I tried to be good and use a lock pattern but my pocket kept emergency dialing.

    I guess my pocket was pretty upset.

    Nope...not true...at least on my phone. It IS true that during the call, you can bypass the lock and go into the droid. However, after the call, once hung up, it goes right back to the lock pattern screen...

    +2 - Same with SMS (when using Handcent on my phone) - I can get and reply, but upon hitting send I go right back to the lock screen.

    That's what the article said, though it also said google has a fix in the works.

    I read this on Gizmodo..basically same article. But to be honest..if said person wants in your phone..and has it in their hands...the lock screen is probably the least of your worries. Hell if you hold it right you possibly could look at the smudge pattern on the phone. Anyhow..keep your phone in your hands..and I think your relatively safe.
