This is so anyone can dial 911 from your phone in an emergency. Not sure this is the case with your phone but you might want to look up what numbers are used for 911 on the device. I think the other main one is 112.
Interesting - based on this thread I have determined that it is a specific sequence of numbers that is bringing up the emergency prompt... in my case the numbers '08' which are in the middle of my password cause the emergency prompt. I can't for the life of me figure out why '08' would indicate that i might be trying to make an emergency call, but seems like that's the behavior.
It even does it if i press '0x' without the alt key to bring up the 8.
I guess in the interim, i'll just have to change it to something different.
Thanks for the help in troubleshooting this one. Not an answer, but at least a workaround.
