Hi all, I work construction and have the sparq ii in my pocket and have pocket dialed 911 several times because of the emergency call feature and the buttons on the outside and I'm moving around and bumping the phone all the time. I have the keypad automatically locking after 5 seconds but even when the key pad is locked it still calls 911. Very annoying for me, but more so for the 911 operators, I'm sure. Please help!
The emergency call feature bypasses any locks to the phone. The only way to prevent this from happening would be to get a phone case that prevents the buttons from being pressed.
Please see if they can update the software so that the 911 buttons cannot be accidentally hit or at least only hittable when the phone is slide open. This is a real problem. You cannot have numerous people making false 911 calls.
I seen other sites showing users that list this as a major problem.
I have had my phone dial 911 while sitting on a table. I need to shut it off, period. I don't need a phone that will randomly auto-dial. If I can't fix this I will throw the phone away. I don't need the hassle.
tmo_chrisl, can you suggest such a case, one that prevents the talk button from being held down?
