    My blackberry called the police........

    Advertisement



    Today while i was at work and had my phone in my leather case attached to my hip called 911. I received a phone call asking if everything was ok from a strange number that i didn't recognize. They told me that I called them and it sounded like my phone was in my pocket. When you hold the * down i thought it locked the keys but if the track ball gets pressed it gives you the option to Cancel, Emergency Call or Unlock the phone. How do I Take off the emergency call option so my phone does not call the police at random??????

    Another problem is when i put my phone into standby mode and put it in my holster. The second the trackball gets pressed it unlocks itself as is free. But if I put into standby mode and purposely push on the buttons nothing happens. Something is really wrong with my phone i think. It makes random 911 calls and can unlock its self just by having the pressure from my leather case push up against it.

    Anyone got any ideas for me...........

    Oh wow
    My Pearl tries to assign a speed dial to one of the keys when this happens (I sat on it one day and it called my mother who was in the house with me at the same time LMAO).

    Try locking the keypad using the Lock Keypad icon on the homescreen before putting the phone in your holster. Or go to Options>Security Options>General Options<Lock Keypad Upon Holstering and/or Security Timeout (options range from 1 Minute to 1 Hour).

    "LMAO"... appropriate comment

    When I holster mine it sometimes calls the first number in the call history

    Maybe your BB is trying to tell you something. Have you been nice to it?

    Are you sure your bb is set to go into sleep mode when holstered?

    This also happened to me a couple times. It was locked in the holster and it called. Happened to a friend twice and i've heard of it happening to other ppl with the 8130. Thoughts?

    Re: My blackberry called the police........

    Is it not a default feature for an 8100 to go into sleep mode when holstered. Where do i change the feature?? But I have taken really good care of it. I don't know what my phone is doing. But my main question can you get rid of the Emergency call feature so while its locked it does not have the option of making an emergency call??????

    I checked on mine I remember seeing that option of blocking emergency calls when locked but press menu then security options, general settings..in there you should have the option to lock handheld upon holstering so chose yes, and you could allow outgoing calls while locked so chose no..I think this option only works with the BlackBerry cases as they have magnets....hope this helps

    I don't believe that you can disable the 911 when locked feature. I think it's actually a legal requirement that phones can dial 911 when locked. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Right it might be a legal requirement in the states but I'm not in the states. I'm using as OS that is not from the states. Why does my phone have this.

    No other phones we have here in Ireland do this.

    I should be able to remove this option.
