Did you know? You can still make calls on old cell phones!

Did you know that an un-subscribed cell phone can still call 911? It’s true. The FCC mandates that either of the two wireless cell phone systems (wireless and non-wireless, AT&T vs Cell One, etc.) are required to handle 911 calls of the other system. If the phone isn’t subscribed to either, the receiving cell system thinks the phone is subscribed to the competing system. Therefore, it allows the call. So hang on to that old cell phone or purchase one like the Track Fone at Wall Mart ($9.00 on sale) and keep it handy.
