I have a very old cell phone. I got it in 2000 and I haven't upgraded for many reasons including not wanting to sign up for another 2 year contract and not wanting to buy accessories for a new phone. So, on Friday when I was coming in to work, I had the phone cradled in my arm along with some other things while I was unlocking the door. After I got in I realized that my phone had called someone! I hit the off button and looked at the number...911! Then, they called me back. Oh how embarrassing. I said I was so sorry, I didn't know how my phone called them.
When I got home I did a search on the internet and came up with this website: 911 Public Education I have one of those old phones that will call 911 if the 9 button is held down. I must have squeezed the phone when I opened the door. I had no idea.
That's just another reason why I should get a new phone. In the meantime, I am going to use the keypad lock function so that my phone can't make any more embarrassing calls to the police. It would have been even more embarrassing if they had showed up!
