I am curious to know, can verizon cell phones text 911 in case of an emergency? I rather not try to test it in case it goes through!

Here is the information I found regarding text messages to 911. No, In the US we can not text 911. You can only dial 911. You can review this and other information using this link: http://www.kgbanswers.com/if-your-in-danger-can-you-text-911/1537298. HTH!

You can dial 911 and if you are unable to speak as long as you leave your cell on the Police Dept. can trace you through the towers, this will take longer to  get help to you.  If you have a speech or hearing problem most phones  have  TTY  (Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf .)  To find out whether you can  text 911  call your local police dept. and they would be able to give you that information.

I would like to add that you have to have your phone set up for the trace, you can trace from Home, or 911 only, I use 911 only I don't want others to be tracing me.   Its listed somewhere in your setting under phone settings.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I was just thinking in a situation where you can't talk and only text. I wish this feature was to be available.
