I am posting this in hope that the Android developers take notice of an extremely frustrating problem I experienced today and that the problem is fixed with the next operating system update. Earlier today, I was in a car accident. I picked up my phone to call the police and decided to use the Emergency Mode because entering my password was just too much, given the mental state I was in. Well, I placed the call to the police, hung up, and then wanted to phone a friend of mine to come meet me because I was so distraught. I attempted to make the phone call using contact info stored on my phone. The phone wouldnt let me place the call, alerting me to the fact that the phone was in "Emergency Mode". So, I proceeded to push the button on the top of my phone, which shuts the screen off. Then, I pushed it again to turn the screen back on. I was given the option to either enter my password or, again, use Emergency Mode. This time, I entered my password, unlocking the phone. But, much to my dismay, I was still not able to place the call to my friend. The phone continued to indicate that it was in "Emergency Mode". I repeated this several times, each time re-entering my password, to no avail. The only way I was able to place the call was to pull the battery on the HTC EVO. This was quite frustrating, considering the state I was in just after the accident. Again, I am hoping that an Android developer reads my post so that it can be fixed. There is nothing like not being able to phone someone when you most need them. Thanks.
