nearly everyone has a mobile phone but how many of you guys/girls know about the emergency 112 number & how you can make a call if the ----- phone is locked, not your phone, don't know the unlock security cod, no sim card in phone, phone shows no network available

No, I was watching the girl topless sunbathing to the right of the picture :hysterical:

In Scotland? Don't be silly ;)

For what it's worth, 999 works exactly the same as 112 in this country. 112 is popularised as it's international as part of the GSM standard - therefore people visiting here or Brits abroad can use it and it will work. You can also use it in the USA or Australia as the GSM network will re-direct it to their emergency numbers (911 and 000 respectively).

But this stuff about 112 having more features over 999 is silly (they are functionally identical) though it's a good way of making people remember the former number over ours - which is of benefit if they get into trouble abroad.

Exactly! 911, 000, 999; 112, all can be dialled from a locked phone with no credit/ or own-network signal (these days even from a sim-less phone, as pointed out). But 112 will work in a lot more countries than any other!

Worth noting that 112 in a lot of European countries will connect you to the Police, not the "Which Service do you require?" Switchboard that 999-phoning Brits will be used to.
