Nokia 110 4g Calling Emergency Even When Locked.

Recommended Posts

Could anyone please help me , and others, with a problem I have with my Nokia 110 4G.

It regularly starts (and sometimes completes) calling emergency whilst it's in my pocket, even though the keypad is in "Locked" mode. The Lock mode disables all the number keys apart from 1 and 9....

This morning it actually got through and that obviously wastes everyone's time.....

Never heard of a phone doing this it’s very strange.

I did a bit of Googling and some people say the side button getting accidentally pressed a few times may do it.

My son calls these pocket calls. It's due to phone being in a tight pocket and your movement presses the 9 button. Try a looser pocket.

Thanks for your answer W, but my phone does not have a side button.

I have played about with it and can confirm that when in "lock" mode the 1 and 9 number keys still work. I assume that is done on purpose to ensure the emergency services can always be phoned easily, but it's actually a bit of a silly idea !

I spent a while getting onto Nokia's technical this morning and they said there was no way to lock numbers 1 and 9, which, I have to say, is absolutely stupid.

A bit of superglue would do it.

It only takes a moment's thought to realise why they leave the numbers needed to dial the emergency services active.

 

Time for you to get a flip phone so the problem goes away. It'll still have 1 and 9 active but they will be physically protected from inadvertent dialling.

It's obvious why they do it, but it's still a stupid idea. It's a classic modern society disproportionate reaction.

 

"We want to make it easier to call emergency services under and circumstance because it might save  a life (regardless of any issues that it might cause)"

 

In the first place it (being able to dial emergency without unlocking a phone which all owners would know how to unlock anyway) is highly unlikely to save a life.

On the other hand all these phones making unwanted calls to emergency numbers is not only very frustrating for the phone's owners it's frustrating and time wasting for the emergency services as well.

So, to sum up, it's a stupid idea, and none of my other phones had this "feature".
