Authorities say a Florida tow truck driver landed in jail after his cell phone pocket-dialed 911 and dispatchers listened in on a conversation about the sale of drugs.

I guess I will be the one to be on the drug dealers side here.......There is no way, absolutely no way that the drug dealer even had 911 on his phone to pocket dial them.....NO WAY!!
Drug dealers won't call the fuzz if they just got shot at home, hospital maybe, but cops......NOT A CHANCE IN HELL!!!
So I think this is a new form of blaming a phone on a call to get people arrested.....I smell a GIANT CONSPIRACY here!

Some phones already have it pre programed. Mine does.
New years eve my phone went crazy. I took it to the store, and while the guy was trying to fix it, it called 911.
It can happen.
...911 dispatchers pinpointed the cell phone's location and sent deputies to investigate.
