Informationweek reports on how Jonathan Zdziarski breaks Apple’s security measures pretty swiftly, in a series of Youtube videos.  While hackers will need physical access to the iPhone (thereby making them crooks), he does cut through the security that protects deleted voice mail, e-mail, and other data.  Note that he is a security researcher and has skills that the garden variety pickpocket probably hasn’t yet learned from iPhone Hacking for Dummies.

(He apparently used the iPhone in portrait mode to make the videos.)
