I call BS. I have NEVER butt-dialed someone. Ever. And ive had a cellphone for at least 10 years. These are not butt-dialers, these are people "pranking" or calling 911 and changing their minds.
You can call BS if you want however, just because you haven't done it, doesn't mean squat. It always amazes me how folk on the internet are such experts on Everything.
Actually, it depends on the device. My son has a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active that does it to him all the time. Something with lock screens on some devices causes the issue.
It happened to me with my HTC-One, but since I got the new Samsung it hasn't happened yet.
I don't have 9-1-1 even programmed on my phone. at the very least it would be a redial of the last called number. Also with a lock on the phone its pretty tricky to slide up to make an emergency call via butt cheeks...So I call shenanigans
ugh this is ASSinine
=/ I had a cellphone that would dial 911 while it was locked. It was actually the only function the phone could perform while locked; and all you had to do was press the send button twice. 3 times I pulled my phone out of my pocket ringing with a callback from the police.
Yes, he sounds like a Carbon based number generator gone wild!
seems a bit high
