    I think it's pretty much the same steps used to exploit a similar flaw exposed in iOS4.1. 


     


    The original find back in 2010 is discussed here:

    Strange, my iPhone 4S has really much better battery life with 6.1.1

    Not really. Clearly it would be difficult to find if you were unaware of the bug, but once you know the procedure (e.g. when it's all over the internet) it's fairly easy to exploit.
    Yes it is yet, how many chances do you have till you acidcdiantly call the police, this seems more of a hack in the OS.

    be the reason another person, randomly knows my phone mumber, name, and is calling from a blocked number (how do you unblock a number?)
