Becareful who you give your deactivated cell phone to...

I saw this story on our local newspaper's website (Daily Harold).

Here's a snipet of the story. (To read the whole story... click HERE.)
"A 4-year-old girl in a Carpentersville apartment last month was playing with a deactivated cell phone, a phone that can't make or receive calls - with one notable exception.

Because of federal laws, the Carpentersville girl was able to call 911, which she did 287 times over 30 days, according to Steve Cordes, executive director of QuadCom, which answers 911 calls for several Kane County towns.

The Carpentersville girl is just one of a growing number of kids calling 911 from used cell phones their parents have given them as a toy, Cordes said."

Be careful who you give your old cell phone... that supposedly doesn't work... The police might show up...
