Post by: racx_00 on June 09, 2004, 06:53:37 AM
We have one for Emergencies and one for just normal things like a robbery or something but Emergency is like a fire or break in or hospital related ;D

So for Emergencies its 000

And non-emergencies its 131444

Post by: Jeysie on June 09, 2004, 11:12:41 AM
Hmm. In the US, if you have a non-emergency, you just simply ring whatever the "regular" number of your local police office is... I don't think there's a "universal" non-emergency number.

Maybe it's 6 6 8 9 1 1!!  :suffer:
Because 668 spells "not" on the number keypad, so its "not" 911, get it!?!?!

Heh, I was watching a movie the other day, and there were murders in the girl's apartment.  She calls 911 and some lame voicemail comes on "Please hold for the next available agent."  ::)  Of course, the guy comes up to her and starts choking her.  ;P

I hope that's just Hollywood and doesn't happen often in real life.  Imagine being in an emergency and hearing "Your call us important to us.  There are TWENTY-THREE people waiting ahead of you."  >:(

Something similar happend here, not long ago. A woman called for help(someone was breaking into her house), and the woman answering didn't believe her. I think(hope) she lost her job.

P.S. The woman was fine, but still...

Omg, that is scary. I called 911 once when I was 3 and they still believed me! ;D I actually WAS telling the truth too.
Title: Re:What the 6 ???
Post by: Louisiana Night on June 15, 2004, 08:14:40 PM
When I was 5/6 years old, I accidently called 911. I hung up when I heard somone's voice, and then they called back. My parents had a talk with me, needless to say.

A police man saw me down the street from my house one day (my mum was watching me), and this cop pulled his car up and started stressing at me :-\, my mum called the police department and stressed at him, lol :suffer:

Title: Re:What the 6 ???
Post by: copycat on November 25, 2004, 06:07:11 PM
The emergency number from a fixed (as in, confined to one place) line is 100, from a mobile phone it's 112 too. There's no general non-emergency number. Actually, I think 1000 is for the fire department, 101 is for the police and 102 is for the ambulance, but when you just dial 100 they can put you through to the other ones too. 100 does a bit of coordination as well. On mobile I only know about the 112, no seperate numbers for police and/or ambulances. AFAIK I never called 100 (IIRC, it was 900 when I was a kid, but then they changed it to 100). ;)
Title: Re:What the 6 ???
Post by: GravityMX on November 25, 2004, 06:20:18 PM
112 is the international emergency line for mobiles (I think). Don't have to put in your SIM number in order to dial  ;)

EDIT: This is so OFF-TOPIC  :o, but who cares  :D

I think overhere you still need a SIM-card, but you don't need to have any credit on it. You can also use anyone's network to transmit the emergency, it doesn't need to be your provider's. 8)
Title: Re:What the 6 ???
Post by: GravityMX on November 29, 2004, 07:09:21 PM
Nope.....U don't need a SIM Card (just tried it then) as long as u have a phone, a battery and have figured how to turn it on.....then you can dial straight away.

BTW.....What's the title of this thread? ;P    ;P

I just tried it too, and indeed there's a button on which I can push to dial 'SOS'.

I think it's about your favorite color. :P

OMG, though they were just for James Bond  8). Not like he will need it  ;). Where is the button anyway? Since if it were in your pocket, it could get accidently pressed and dial SOS!  :o

(http://www.samsung.com/be-nl/products/mobilephones/mobilephones/images/x100_m.jpg)
That is my cellphone. No if you look closely, you'll see a button below the left bottom corner of the screen, that's the button I have to push when there's no SIM-card and I want to dial for help.

Since if it were in your pocket, it could get accidently pressed and dial SOS!  :o
Usually there's a SIM-card present in the cell-phone, and I also disable the buttons before I put it into a pocket. 8)

Global System for Mobile Communications. Usually refers to the European standard GSM operating on 900 MHz and 1800 MHz bands, but in North America refers to the 1900 MHz band.
Need the link (http://www.mobilecom.jo/pc/GSMGlossary.asp) where I found that? 8)

I'm a proper mobile geek although I still don't have a 3G phone yet with video calling and all that :( I'll give it a few more months untill they release a contract that's less than £30/month...

Mobile phones, in my book, are phones that aren't fixed, therefor also fixed phones with a wireless mic/speaker. To me it doesn't matter it's got a limited range, it's very mobile within that range. In essence, that kind of phone just has one cell, whereas the cell phone has many more. 8)

GPRS, as in the internet, for your phone  ::). Also known as Wap (Wireless Application Protocol)  :P

AFAIK, Wap is not necessarily GPRS, the 2nd generation phones also have Wap. 8)
I was wondering what you could access with GPRS without any credit.

I always thought Wap was slow internet (dialup) while GPRS was fast (broadband) internet for phones....

My friend says you can access everything, and download everything  :o  :P

Wap is carrier independant:
first you had CSD (Circuit Switched date': 9.6 kbps
Then you've got GPRS (General Packet Radio Service): 177.2 kbps theoretical, 35 kbps actual.
And the next generation is UMTS (Universal Mobile Telephony System): up to 2 Mbps.
WAP itself remains, but the version changes to accomodate for the new carrier-speeds.
