Random Emergency calls

My phone has started making random calls by itself. While the keys are locked. BUT TO ONLY EMERGENCY NUMBERS!. First it's been calling 112 which does nothing in this area. But today it actually called 911. While in my pocket. While the keys were locked. I would have never known but the operator called me back. So I looked through my call log and find a bunch of listings for 112 and finally today for 911. Maybe it would make more sense if random numbers or contacts were called along but thats not the case.

WHat and WhY

I'm running 3VO 3.60

Basically the Emergency numbers can be dialed even if the keyboard is locked. Install maniac Autokeylock () - this will add another layer of keypad safety. His site seems offline currently (http://maniac.fschreiner.de/), so you may need to seek for a download elsewhere. I have no copy available - possibly will do that later.

Thanks. I didn't realize it did that. Makes sense now. This program will make the keys automatically lock but will it lock it from dialing 911?

here my friend
use this
http://www.logic-unlimited.in/callfirewall.php
this is an all in one software which can block incoming sms and calls
as well as block outgoing calls so just add 911 to ur blacklist so this application will stop it from calling

AKL will block only while the SS is active. No need to configure a call firewall. With the latter you will kill dialing 911 all times - also when you need it!
