911Cast is for Android Phones only. The authorization handshake will not complete on Tablet devices.
The 911Cast Application -
-- Does not change your current 911 calling behavior at all
-- You still dial 911 on your mobile phone keypad, and press SEND or CALL
-- The 911Cast application DOES NOT place the 911 call for you and DOES NOT interfere with your phone’s ability to call 911 in any manner
During and after a 911 call, the 911Cast provides tools -
-- Notification of up to 5 friends and family from your Contacts list (called your 911Cast List) that have accepted your invitation to receive alerts via Text message that you dialed 911
-- Text message includes a link to your location, if GPS is enabled on your phone
-- A Text Message window to send an update to your 911Cast List all at once, such as, - “I saw an accident and called 911, but am fine.” … or … “The ambulance is here, on the way to Memorial Hospital.”
-- See received Alerts within the Application instead of as SMS messages
The 911Cast service works on multiple devices and across multiple carriers.
