    Sprint Hero atakphone won't dial 911

    Trying to dial 911, the phone goes to the built in dial screen and then just sits there...If you initiate the call with the built-in dialer, it works...

    Wait - I see that.

    Seems like a limitation built into the system - when you try to dial 912 it works, only 911 behaves this way.

    Tried that with other 3rd party dialing apps, as well.

    My guess - Google decided to prevent 3rd party apps from automatically bothering the 911 people...

    Hi,

    Could not find a solution.

    Filed a bug report at Google - maybe they'll come around...
