Are you expecting Canadian emergency services to come to your assistance in Austria?Bylo Selhi wrote:When I'm in Austria in a couple of weeks time I'll use it to call family and friends in Canada. If for some reason I were to dial 911 on DV the authorities will dispatch help to my address in Waterloo. When they discover I'm not there, they may trace my IP address. That will get them an ISP in Austria from whom I will have bought a SIM card and some airtime. I will have paid cash. I won't have been asked for ID. At best they'll be able to trace the call to a cell tower. Maybe they'll be able to triangulate but I wouldn't bet my life on it. A lot of good the CRTC has done me in this scenario.
Presumably when you buy your SIM card in Austria you will make arrangements with the provider. And presumably you'll remember to dial 112 rather than 911 in case of emergency.
Anyway, I hope you have a nice trip with no need to call any emergency number.
