Stuck in Dead Zone During an Emergency - Dial 112

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112.   See Wikipedia for further details.  If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile or in a dead cell zone; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out. If you have coverage I believe you can still dial 911 according to the e911 regulations.  There are thousands of rural areas listed on our map that could be potentially dangerous areas if you happen to get a flat tire or in a car crash.  This is why it is important to list these stretches of road on our map so cell phone companies can repair these areas for safety reasons.  However, we want to know if you have been a victim and could not make a call during an emergency.  Email us with your story.
