I just tested Siri by telling her to "Call 411" which is basically a phone book for businessses etc. She called the number. If you are still unable to get her to call 911 by saying "Call 911" you can set a contact called "Emergency", and put the phone number as 911. I tested it, but with 411.I was shocked to find out that Siri won't call 911! Is there a work around? Can I have a contact called emergency with 911 for the number, or will it not dial a 3 digit number.
Interesting. I don't think I want to test it out though. Too risky.
They will be able to make a 911 call. In the US it is law that any cellphone can initiate a 911 call, sim or no sim, locked or not.If someone steals my iPhone and they suddenly find themselves in an emergency, I would certainly not want them using my stolen iPhone to call 911 and save their pathetic life.
I think the FCC actually requires that a 911 call be routed whether a phone is a subscriber or not, but they don't specifically address the issue of locked phones. The three FCC requirements are:They will be able to make a 911 call. In the US it is law that any cellphone can initiate a 911 call, sim or no sim, locked or not.
Can you quickly and easily locate TracFone and other non-GPS cell phone call coordinates with tower triangulation? I know it isn't as precise as GPS.Being a 911 dispatcher, it's is law for all of North America for any cell phone whether they be activated or not have 911 capabilities. Depending on the type of cell used, some may or may not provide GPS coordinates. Today's cells, all have GPS features and even if you were to turn off GPS settings, we still get readings. Just FYI.
