Seems that 911 services are flooded by testing calls from CyanogenMod users. "what's the emergency sir?" "don't bother, I'm just testing my phone". Maybe CNN will cover this tomorrow.

I reverted back to the 08 build or something like that and my emergency calls only issue went away is there a known problem with the lastest nightlys on this issue?

(when locked my phone would say emergency calls only but after it was unlocked it would get the signal back 75% of the time other times i had to to restart the phone to get signal back.)

Not saying you shouldn't test 911 if you're worried it won't work because it's always good to have confidence that it will work in a real emergency, but remember that in many jurisdictions this sends at least 1 police officer and possibly other emergency services out to check on the call regardless of what you tell the dispatcher, it may also result in you getting a not insignificant fine for doing so, I know this was pointed out a page or two ago, but I thought it worth repeating.

Alright this is all valid. So so far we have 2 people in America that have reported an issue, and everyone else in all other countries it seems to work fine. I can test it all day and it never goes through. No cops show up because it hangs up before it even rings.

This is definitely a weird problem.

In some places you can call the non-emergency number for the 911 call center and schedule a 911 test. You then call 911 at the scheduled time and they'll know it's not a real emergency.

I know, and there's nothing wrong with that at all, I'm just saying make sure you're not needlessly wasting emergency services time before you call 911 to test

My mistake. It's fixed when I force closed the application and cleared its data.

I'm on the latest nightly now and the USB tethering still not working properly. I've waited for over 10 mins and the phone still wouldn't assign IP to the PC. Is there any app cache/data that I need to wipe for the tethering to work (I always wipe cache partition and davik cache after every dirty flash).

Wifi tethering works fine thou and so i'm sticking to it for the time being.

Please help....

EDIT: While we are on the subject, would it be possible to add at USB tethering toggle button to the menu? Quite a lot of presses needed in order to turn it on at the moment, many thanks devs!
