CARPENTERSVILLE -- Emergency dispatchers heard a child's voice, but couldn't tell where the call was being made from. At times, 15 to 20 calls came during a shift. Then they stopped for a week. By the end of last month, a 4-year-old had called QuadCom's emergency center 287 times using a deactivated cell phone, according to executive director Steve Cordes. http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/456411,CST-NWS-cell05.article I personally didn't know a cell phones 911 still worked even if the phone was deactivated..
