Nexus One users in the UK are having quite an annoying issue with their devices. After an update that was rolled out in late January, there have been reports that some users have been dialing emergency numbers as soon as they try to access their voicemail, or call a freephone number.
To make matters worse, a simple fix does not seem to be out there at the moment. Users reporting the issue to Google’s customer support have been given a new voicemail number, which does not fix the problem, but gives them more of a work around to get to their voicemail. So instead of dialing ‘111’, or whatever the short number to access voicemail may be, Google is giving customers the ten digit number to directly connect to their voicemail. So far, there seems to be no fix, or work around for freephone numbers.
If you were to dial 120, 000, 110, 08, 111,122 , 118, 119, 112, 0800,995, or 911 with your newly updated Nexus One, you’d be promptly connected to a ‘representative’, asking for the state of your emergency. My suggestion is that if you are having these issues, try switching to Now Message, Google Voice, or just stop missing calls. Easy right? — Let’s hope that Google comes out with a fix for this issue very soon.
