LG Phone Recalled Due to Poor 911 Connection
This seems to be a first. On Friday, the LG Spyder 830 cell phone was recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission because it "presented a hazard to the public by not holding a connection and had poor voice quality during 911 emergency calls".
What surprises me is the fault has been penned on the phone maker and not the mobile operator.
