    A coworker was in a minor auto accident today.

    A witness flipped open a Treo to call 911, but in their agitated state of mind, was stymied by the fact that there was no way to dial 911 in the SpeedDial view.

    They called somebody from the SpeedDial list and asked him to call the Police.

    Don't think this couldn't happen to you.
    Add 911 to your speed dial list.

    I think his point is that uneducated users don't know this.. if you preprogram 911 anybody can just click on 911 to get connected to 911...

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    I don't know if this is a good idea. Haven't you ever accidentally dialed one of your speed dials?

    The point actually being that no matter how well you know your phone, in an "emergency" people get flustered.

    This was a minor emergency. If there had been blood and body parts flying, even an experienced user might find themself looking for the "9" on the speed dial display.

    I've never accidentally dialed one of my speed dial entries.
    If you think it's likely, you could program the button to dial the operator, instead.

    Please note that 911 only works in certain countries. According to GSM standard, 112 will connect you to the emergency line in any part of the world where you have GSM coverage. Better program that one!
