    Why my android 2.3.4 phone enables the GPS when I dial 911 (I found that good)
    but why my other android 4.04 phone does not enable it?

    I guess it is a security measure that was implemented in android 4 and later... in order to avoid automatically enable the GPS.... it affected the antitheft location... but now I found anther very vital way it affects... I prefer a malware to enable the GPS to know my location.... but at least under extreme stress when we usually dial 9111 I don't have to remember to enable the GPS to ease my location....
