- p08757** Superhero **Last night my wife was involved in a bike riding accident and I needed to call 911. I was in a panic so I really am unsure what was happening but here is what I recall:
When I called 911 I received a busy signal
I received a message on my phone asking me if I wanted it to go into Call Back Only Mode.
I tried several times with the same results.
I was able to call my father who called 911 on my behalf and got help.
About 15 minutes later I was able to contact 911.
Has anyone ever experienced this, and what can I do to prevent this in the future.
By the way my wife is okay and only suffered some fractures to her face. Thank GOD she was wearing a bike helmet which broke into 3 pieces as a result of the accident. Without the helmet I may have been planning her funeral now.07-12-2012 12:17 PM
- DovahkiinOne Man WolfpackI'm glad she's alright. I can't stress how important it is to wear a helmet. I see so many idiots saying how it "ruins" their look, or how they're tired of the government telling them what to do.
Guess it thins out the herd, though.07-12-2012 12:36 PMLike 3

- Two weeks ago we were in Seattle for work and brought our daughter. She stayed with my wfies cousin. Short of the long my daughter had to use her MAXX to dial 911 because the cousin fainted. She made the call with out a problem. So yeah it may have been a tower issue.07-12-2012 11:38 PMLike 2
- The experience my wife had with 911 was the person answering was in KENTUCKY? We live in Cincinnati,OH. I have noticed the weather widget often shows Kentucy locations. I plan to call VZ to see what they can do. BTW there are cell towers within 2-3 miles of our house10-30-2012 09:23 AM
