Gui is right. It lets you dial any number. Now THAT is reason for concern

Guys, That's nothing compared to the other new bug of 2.1. Go to emergency call and dial any number... It just works !!! Amazing!!!

Another problem I noticed with 2.1 is that after installing BiteSMS (via Cydia or Installer), none of the apps installed via AppStore would work. Deinstalling BiteSMS allows them to work again. Perhaps another version of BiteSMS would be coming out soon?

It's a feature: You now can send the thief a text message and tell him to return the iPhone.

Why am I not surprised..... I was just explaining to someone the other day looking to update to a new firmware to fix some bugs, and I told them it might fix some bugs, but it's also just going to create more. And I know quite a few people who wont be willing to upgrade to 2.1 because this bug. The disablement of the SMS Preview is quite critical for those texting sensitive data.
