    Mine is 18 characters long and it's not too bad. (I have more than my name as the carrier string.)

    It's just an option if you didn't want a wallpaper w/ the name.

    The other option is just to have a sticker/label on the back w/ the name.

    Maybe a patch idea.....

    On my wife's Samsung Reality, contacts that she marks as Emergency contacts show up with a red font in her contact list. This way, if someone is simply scrolling through her contacts, they will stand out, even if the person isn't familiar with how to use that particular phone.

    That would be a good patch idea, IMHO. I am thinking about having my custom ICE utility actually adding contacts prefixed with "ICE:" for visual reference and universal search. But, it would create duplicate contacts and I'm not sure I'd want that myself.

    Truthfully, I think it should simply be an option for most modern phones. It would especially be nice if there was a standardized method to access it. Of course, it should be optional for the user to actually put this information in (for reasons stated previously.) But, if you wanted to use it, it would be nice if it was built-in.

    Patch idead is good ONLY, if it's placed as an icon in the dialer screen.. Labeled ICE it would can lead to any contact or to any contact with the nickname I.C.E.

    But, if you had that, why would you download a patch that does it?

    I probably wouldn't add that to my app, as mentioned in my previous post, and if I did, it would be an option, not something that would be done automatically.

    Sorry about that. I mis-read your post. My apologies, but one of the things that I've noticed about this thread is the number of posts that make suggestions, then another that shoots the idea down.

    I would suspect that a patch that added ICE: to the contact would do so that it would work w/ universal search, as well as make it visible within the contact list. If I do get around to adding it to my app, I'd be sure to do so. (Again, as an option.)

    Ok, I haven't tried my hand at developing for WebOS, but I'm sure this wouldn't be to hard for someone out there to implement. How about simply adding a button to the dialer screen that would open a list of ICE contacts? I'm not sure how well known the Star of Life is outside the US so I thought maybe the ICE idea. I was also thinking a Red Cross because that is supposed to be a worldwide medical symbol but then I thought maybe its meaning would get lost in this particular screen. Someone not familiar with the device may just think that it was a plus sign to add a new contact or something.
