Re: Can 911 locate you on a cell phone?Dec 29th, 2016
You two I expected not to have read the article. Mhz, because he can't read, and cannuck because he thinks he knows it all. Like Petros pointed out, the article explains why 911 doesn't get location services from cell phones.
Today's cellphone system does not automatically send location data when you dial 911. After the call comes in, the dispatcher's computer transmits a digital request to the cellphone network seeking the phone's location. The data exchange can take seconds or even minutes. Sometimes, it doesn't return a location at all.
