I am so relieved that new cell phones produced today come manufactured with Enhanced 911 capabilities.
I just moved into a new apartment, but I did not want to buy a land line phone because my cell phone is my main source of communication. My mom told me, however, that if I was every in an emergency situation, calling 911 from my phone would not automatically let the operator know where I was located. She insisted that I get a land line just in case I ever needed to call 911 from my house.
Thankfully, however, I was due for a cell phone upgrade around the same time that I moved in to my new place. The salesman assured me that my new cell phone had E911 capabilities, and I was relieved. I even called the manufacture just to be sure.
I just wonder why it took so long for cell phone manufactures to master this technology. It seems like a simple enough concept to find a solution to.
