For Folks who had an iPhone 3G with iOS 3.1.3 do you remember? This bug actually existed and was fixed.

the step "Press and hold the sleep/wake button and in exactly 3 seconds tap the emergency call button.", is very timing critical, to quickly or to late and you only get the black screen, Once you get the phone dial pad you have to press the Home button (to take a snapshot of the screen) only then do you get access
