The reception signal shows 4 to 5 bars, it is changing, there is no simcard installed on the phone. What are the bars for?
I actually get fewer bars when I have a SIM card in it (sad state of AT&T)

Yes, when you have no card inserted, it latches to the strongest signals for 911.

Thanks guys, all other phones I had displayed no bars or had X on reception but still allowed 911.
I see LG G2 displays the signal strength even with no SIM.
