So some guy in the US has come up with a little gadget that locks the 9 key on mobile phones to stop you inadvertently calling emergency services when you sit down on your handset. Huh? Has no-one heard of the inbuilt keylock function on most modern handsets?
‘The 63-year-old RV repair specialist from Tualatin has begun marketing a patented cell phone button guard designed to cut back on accidental 911 calls. The raised, stick-on oval fits around the “9″ button and is designed to prevent an unintentional dialing of the number.’
