My understanding is that it basically comes down to this; a law enforcement officer cannot legally search your phone without a search warrant and a search warrant cannot be obtained without probable cause. However, they can seize the phone to preserve any evidence and once they get a warrant they can search it.

A few years ago I wrote a couple of blog posts about some actual cases relating to this subject. Since the site where they were posted is no longer active I cannot provide links. If I can find a way that the forum allows I will upload those posts.
