    So I was at work. My phone was in my pocket and I had somehow sent out an emergency text with my location pinpointed in Google maps. My phone is a ZTL XL Android phone from virign mobile. It's a crappy phone, so I'm not finding much information about it. I can't seem to replicate sending the message out by pressing the power button.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Do you use a password, PIN or pattern lock on your phone? If not, pocket dialling might happen.

    Yes! I have both a pin and a finger print open. And while I've pocket dialed before, I've never sent an emergency text that sent my location along side it.

    Welcome to Android Central! Some phones (like Samsung) have an option where if you press the Power button 3 times quickly, it will send an SOS message to your emergency contacts (https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=R2BYDCoj). Check your manual or search the phone's system settings to see if there's a similar option.

    Maybe it will pull up by going into settings , type in search bar SOS and turn off .
