    Press SEND to start Emergency call...

    Does anyone know if the "Press SEND to start Emergency call" "feature" can be disabled??

    I find it anoying as hell. Try dialing the following phone numbers on your blackberry when it is locked:
    555-5911
    555-5112
    555-0008

    or better yet:
    (508) 591-1208 - and you'll get 3 popups during your dialing...

    The "Press SEND to start Emergency call" message pops up instead of the last digit you dialed. You have to clear the message and then re-dial the last digit. It looks like any number that has a "911", "112", or "08" in it will prompt this message if your blackberry is locked.

    Not sure, thought I would give the post a bump.

    Kevin, I don't believe there is a way to do this. When your BB is locked, it can only dial an emergency number.

    There's actually a setting on mine (8700c w/ handheld software 4.1.0.377) in the Security Options/General Settings to "Allow Outgoing Calls While Locked". When this setting is enabled, I experience the annoyances previously described. This is a very useful feature when your corporate policy dictates that you must have a device password, but you still want your family members to be able to use your blackberry as a phone.
