Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

I have a Samsung A497. I saw online that there is a "location" setting on all cell phones that can be used instead of E911 (whatever that is) to locate the actual phone (as well as the person carrying it). I have looked all over the settings in my cell phone, and can't find any such setting. Help? Thanks, Dusty Clark

Magicjack problems


1) You should consider maintaining an alternate means of contacting E911 services. The magicJack E911 service differs from traditional E911 service. You understand and acknowledge that you should consider having an alternate means of contacting E911 services and inform your magicJack" device users of this.

2) magicJack emergency services may not operate during a power outage. You understand and acknowledge that you may not be able to use your magicJack" device to contact E911 services if your power is disrupted. Once power service is restored, you may be required to reset or reconfigure your Internet service before you will be able to use it to contact E911 services. You are responsible for providing an uninterruptible backup power supply to ensure continued operation of electrical equipment, including customer premises equipment necessary to provide Internet service, in the event of a power outage.

3) magicJack E911 services will not operate if your broadband connection is disrupted. You understand and acknowledge that you will not be able to use your magicJack" device to contact E911 services if your broadband connection is disrupted. Once your broadband connection has been restored, you may be required to reset or reconfigure your Internet equipment before you will be able to use the magicJack" device to contact E911 services.

4) magicJack E911 services will not operate unless you register your correct service address with magicJack. You understand and acknowledge that you must provide magicJack with your correct service address in order for E911 services to work. If you notice that the location information identified in your 911 registration section of the magicJack menu is inaccurate, you can correct your service address by going to the magicJack menu and selecting E911.

5) magicJack E911 services will not operate correctly if you disable, damage or move the magicJack" device to another location. If you disable, damage or move the magicJack" device to a location other than the service address you provided when it was registered, it will not function. If you wish to move to a new address, go to the magicJack menu and select the E911 option.

6) magicJack E911 service will not operate outside of the United States and Canada.

7) magicJack is only able to provide E911 service in cities and towns where the local Public Safety Answering Point, or PSAP, is technically capable of receiving your address information with your E911 call. If the PSAP that serves your area is not equipped to receive your magicJack registered address, you will need to provide the 911 operator with your address information orally.

We want to make sure we have given you the tools to keep you, your families and your coworkers safe each time you dial 911.

Emergency 911
in an emergency the phone will locate any available tower to send that call. even if it is not a tower you subscribe to.
(this is why you have the 911 charge on your bill every month.)

What is the icon on the LG100C phone that is next to the battery icon? It is a circle with a + inside it. My icon also has a red line going through it. What does that mean?

The correct answer to your question.....the icon means that your phone is set for E911 GPS Locator only. If you make a 911 call your gps location will show up at the 911 center that is receiving your call. It will be your actual location and not that of the tower that is sending the signal.

Hi, my ultimate 9502 phone battery is dead withing less than one hour. how do i fix this problem. how do i make sure is this problem on battery or phone? please advice me

One setting that will drain your battery extremely fast is having the GPS set to "Always-On," or "Location-On." Instead, try setting it to "E911" or "Emergency only." This stops constantly transmitting your exact location unless you dial 911.

The E911 is on alot of phone now. There is only two reason why it would be on. One is that ou have called 911 recently or There is a setting in you phone htat you could change that would let you open your GPS to anyone. With the setting it is on now only 911 can find you.

Follow this: 1. Go to Settings & Tools. 2. Select option 5 (Phone Settings) 3. On next window select option 5 again (Location) 4. After the selection is made you should see 2 selection options. a.) Location ON & b.) E911 only. 5. If the selection is on "E911 only" your Navigation system will not work. Change the election to "Location ON" and after selecting this option, exit and go to Navigation.
