999 emergency TEXT tip in UK only
I read this interesting article in 'The Update' magazine from George Fisher Ltd which could save someone's life one day.
Applies only in UK
From MRT trainer Lyle Brotherton.
Sometimes in a poor reception area a text message can get through where a voice call can't, however the catch was that you could not text 999.
Well now you can; you just have to register first.
1) Text 'register' to 999
2)After a minute you will get a text back, to which you reply 'yes'
3) The system will then text you to confirm registration
4) That's it
I have done the above and registered my phone.
