Although Next Generation 911 hasn't come yet.... it WILL come around sometime in the near future and you'll be able to text to 911. In fact, if you live in Maine you can do this now! If you live in a state where 911 text hasn't been implemented yet, you can change the recipient number from 911 to another number (family member, co-worker, mate, etc...) until 911 to text is implement in your area. Simply click menu on your phone, then settings and change SendTo number as shown in images.
This app could save your life if you are an ordinary person, as well as deaf and disabled.
