Just a short one, but possibly very useful for our UK readers.
Have you ever been anywhere where the phone reception is so low that you can’t make a call, but you can just about fire off an SMS?
Well now you can text 999 in an emergency.
You need to register:
Just text ‘register’ to 999. (yeah, i know that seems weird but I tried it and it works fine).
Then you get a message back which you need to answer.
If you ever go somewhere remote, off-shore, in the hills, this could be a lifesaver.
