/ 112...How much of this is true?
I've heard of 112, but not taken much notice. So how much if any of this vid is accurate?
I've just registered following his instructions.For more info
My phone is locked, and as it is a touch screen there is no keyboard to dial 112, however when locked the screen shows a emergency option, presumably usable without unlocking the phone.
Dunno if it's right, but it's good to know!

What makes you think it is fishy?
Seems fine to me.
Can't access the link as at work, but my brother used 112 service when in france and their car caught fire. They were excellent apparently, translating for both parties and sorting it out pretty quickly.
911 is better.
Last first aid refresher I was on we were told we could use 112 from mobiles. The exact advantages I can't remember, think it might be something to do with any mobile using any network that has a signal in that area.
112 is a synonym for 999 here in the UK (ie its the same). The emergency number/line
is separate to the std phone carier and you can use any network from any mobile
(if there is no coverage from any carrier (02, ee, virgin....) you cant call, if there is any you can.
Some fancy new phones (been told the galaxy)- dont even need a SIM which is smart.
the advantage is that 112 is becoming the std synonym across the world so you know what to call.
Works in all Europe (since 1991), and from mobiles in much of the rest of
the world (including from GSM mobiles in USA) - ie not landlines (yet maybe). Africa is a mess !
shows numbers for all counties and where colonial influence is exerted
in other words that video is genuine - why wouldn't it be !
