U.S. carriers commit to nationwide text-to-911 service

Verizon Wireless, AT&T Mobility, Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile USA all agreed to offer nationwide text-to-911 services by May 15, 2014, with "major deployments" starting next year. The service will help people contact 911 in situations where it's too dangerous to speak or if they're disabled.
