911 issues?

A couple weeks ago I tried calling 911 6 different times within a 20 minute period. Each time I got the automated message " All circuits busy, try again later" is that an issue with PM Service? Or.....?

That's a little disturbing.

@VDubbin usually that's an issue with the cell tower having no lines available but 911 is supposed to have priority and kick someone off to use that line!  I would send a message to the Moderator_Team just to make them aware of the problem and they can look into it

@VDubbin 

That sounds like all the 911 lines (in your area) were busy.

Maybe too late to ask now, but were you able to call anyone else?


Btw, were you experiencing this issue on election day Oct 21?

If so, you were not alone.

Nerwork issue. If it happens again, remove sim card to make csll. It might connect by Rogers or Freedom.

Probably not much can be done about that but you would think that any 911 call would be accepted and they would have the capacity to do so.

It looks to be an issue with local 911 services.

If it happens again, you should notify authorities, by dialing local operator (or an alternate emergency number).

Hi @VDubbin,

 

I recommend you to go online and use SIMon and create a ticket so I can help you.
