That's why someone would need a phone to pretend to be you on the ao, Sir.

How do you do this? Is this true on all phones? My phone has an emergency mode that allows you to get to the keypad, presumably to dial 911 or the police or something... but I couldn't figure out how to get to anyone in contacts.

Not saying this doesn't exist... just that I don't know how to do it and if it does exist I'd like to know how to take advantage.

I never bothered with one until I got a phone with fingerprint ability. The loss of convenience wasn't worth it before.

No it's not, you put your finger on the reader, it unlocks, same speed.
