    I read somewhere on the internet that its a good thing to put a contact in your cell phone with the name ICE ~Which means In Case of Emergency.(pretty sure thats what it was,if anybody can correct me,go for it) so that way if somebody came upon you if you was in a car wreck,Etc. They could call the emergency contact also and let them know.Lots of situations it could be handy in.
    I was just wondering if anybody actually has done that or if something would ever happen would anyone think to look at the cell phone and call that number? I just added it to my cell and added a second one also in case the first didn't answer.LOL!
    I'll attach an anonymous poll to see if anybody wants to vote...

    John,

    I hadn't heard of it, but sounds like a great idea to me! Especially if you have alot of contact #s saved on the cell phone... in an emergency, somebody trying to use it wouldn't know which one to call.

    On the other hand, if they didn't know the meaning of "ICE"... :roll_eyes:

    hmm... I think I'd label those contacts - Emergency 1 and Emergency 2 - lol... anyhow, I do think it's a worthwhile thing to do and thanks for the tip!

    Thats true.Very true.Some people may think its a nickname or something.I'd say most police & emergency personnel probably know it.I can't remember where I read it at but was editing some contacts in my phone and remembered it.I'd figure i'd pass it on and maybe somebody else has seen it or heard about it and has more ideas.I like the idea Emergency 1,2.Pretty good!

    Have not heard of "ICE", but cool concept. I do like the Emergency 1 & 2 idea. Good thought.

    John I have it on mine. We actually just got them about a week ago and I saw where there was an option to put it. It can be used if you have every option locked they can still use the ICE. I didnt know that was what it was called but that is what it is used for.

    Thats cool.What I had heard was naming a contact in your contact book/list the name as ICE. I wasn't aware the phone had an option. Cool.Thanks!!!

    John I was mistaken LOL, the phone we originaly got had it but we changed to a new one cause the one that we first got had no options. The ew one we got doesnt have that option, go figure its got every option but that as far as I can tell
