Quick Reference Guide
• Emergency Services
You can make an emergency call virtually anywhere in
the world (without unlocking your phone) by dialing 112.
Provided your phone has found a network, you are able
to make an emergency call. The emergency call is
directed to a central emergency operator. Be sure to
check the emergency service number in the country you
are traveling to. Roadpost recommends programming
the local emergency service number into your SIM card.
Ask your travel agent for this emergency information.
We recommend that you program all important
phone numbers into your handset, including the full
international access codes. For information on how
to program numbers into your phone, please refer to
the manufacturer’s user guide.
