Hit that keypad lock before any discussions which might be dicey.

How does your phone accidentally dial 911? Do some phones simply have a 911 button?

Blackberrys, when locked, have a feature for an emergency call without entering the unlock code. You have to try to use the phone when it's locked, then confirm you want to make an emergency call. I can see this happening in someone's back pocket.

This is why I'm still hanging on to my old-ass flip phone. It's impossible to accidentally dial anything when it's in my pocket.

Did anyone else see this on the page? WTF, I thought the farker opinions of the US police were a bit over the top at times, but maybe I'm wrong?

After determining the accidental nature of the call, officers were about to leave when they spotted the baggies, later estimated to be worth more than $2,600.

Man, a whole 20$ in drugs. Impressive.

Most phones are designed to auto-call 911 with a few keystrokes in areas marked as emergency service only (mostly low-coverage areas, like the kinds of places you might make a drug deal had you watched too many gangster movies). For bonus points there is usually a way to call 911 on a given cell without unlocking it.

So... basically yes. Probably your phone has something similar, the last bit (being able to call 911 without unlocking the phone) is actually legally required in the USA, though the complexity of the keystrokes to get there varies.

I know I had an old Nokia that, even when the keypad was locked, if you held down the 9 button long enough, would call 911. Terrible feature.

Wonderful, in this case.

Better yet, switch the damn thing off until you have finished your business.

If you're that paranoid then take the out battery as well.

I'm always surprised more of these 911 pocket dialers aren't named "Fuzzy Dunlop"

So much that! I may have to turn mine in soon though the buttons are getting screwy.

I dialed 911 on my phone last month after my car accident and when you end a call to 911 you have to push end you can just close your phone.

The witless drug dealer Jesus
Apparently had a screw or two loose
Chest puffed out,oddly smiling,
Alerting cops by butt-dialing-
No doubt eager for some jailhouse abuse.

Nope, he's definitely a dumbass. He had a shiatload of crack in baggies in farking plain view in the back seat of his car.
