Default World Wide Emergency Cell Number, SEARCHES ALL NETWORKS FOR SIGNAL! Read! Please Stic

Please Login to Remove!

Was given this number by a Doctor friend of mine in the Army.

This actually works, try it.

Just call 112 and hit send.

"EMERGENCY CALL" pops up and your cell will look for a signal, no matter what service, world wide.

Please Sticky Admins.

Its the emergency telephone number in the EU. Works on any phone, land or mobile. If using the GSM mobile it will use any network, should work even without simcard.

please refer to

EU regulation on 112,
article 12

I feel like an idiot. I called the 112 number today and hung up thinking that nothing would happen, and then i got a call from the local police department wanting to know if there was an emergency. So boys and girls dont do this unless there is an emergency.

112 works everywhere in Europe, although the original country-specific numbers have not yet been phased out, so either number will get through. Almost all phones here have the emergency numbers pre-programmed, not just Blackberrys.

Thank you for this info. It may have been out there "forever", but somehow it escpaped me until today. I am sure there are others that have never seen this info before.

Emergency telephone number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A good article on Wikipedia.
