    On my Thunderbolt, I've set up a security lock pattern. What is the Emergency Call button under that pattern, and where does it call when you press it?

    Sorry, this may sound dumb, but I'm new to this type of smartphone & Android.:)

    I'm pretty sure it's a legal issue. Phones must be able to call emergency numbers (e.g. 911) in any condition. So if it's locked or if the SIM card is removed or even if it isn't activated, you can still call 911.

    It doesn't call anything, it opens a dial pad, from there you can call 911.(And possibly other emergency numbers but I can't verify)
