Cell Phone Emergency Contact Info
Updated: Nov 4
Last week we were pulling out of our driveway to go somewhere when my seven-year-old exclaimed, “There’s a phone in the street!” Sure enough, an iPhone with a functional but cracked screen – along with a driver’s license and credit card – was lying in the middle of our street. Because of the lockscreen passcode I wasn’t able to search contacts for the “ICE” prefix (In Case of Emergency) that people sometimes use. Thankfully though, the owner had stored emergency contact information in the iPhone’s Medical ID app and I was able to reach her and return the items. Most Android phones have a similar feature where emergency information can be shown on the screen without knowing the passcode. It’s certainly worth your time to make sure that you have contact info entered on your phone before an emergency arises.
