Now let's change the company and put a major financial company who are using iPhones and some finance guys misplaces his phone that contains lot of sensitive information.

So yes I would see this as a major security flaw and it should be pointed out because Apple has always claimed how they are ready for Enterprise and how their OS is perfect.  If you have the balls to say your are perfect, you better damn well be because if you are not and people find out about it, I will have a hard time feeling that you don't deserve it a little bit.

I can see what you are saying, but if someone steals your phone, that's a security flaw regardless. In addition, you are assuming the population at large knows how to do this. If your phone is stolen then your security dept should already have plans in place to handle such situations such as wiping the phone. I do not know what types of encryption companies can used to protect the data, but there should be some security protocols in place already. No one said Apple was perfect, but this has been blown out of proportion.

Message to the dude at Jailbreak Nation:

Go outside. Go for a walk. Get some fresh air. Talk to some living human beings. Perhaps sit at a coffee shop for a few minutes with a physical newspaper.

I promise you that the hours you spend randomly tapping and holding buttons on your phone in order to discover some highly complex, extremely difficult-if-not-impossible to replicate sequence of actions that might get you into a stolen phones contact list are hours that you'll never get back.

You're wasting precious time.

On that note - the 15 minutes I've spent reading Apple Insider, is probably 15 minutes too long. Off my ass now and into the real world...
