S.O.S. "S.O.S. In the U.S., we know to dial 911 for emergencies, but other countries use different numbers. For that reason, the GSM phone systems have created a single emergency number: 112. If you dial 112 from a GSM phone in several countries, including the U.K., Australia, Singapore, and all other spots in the EU, you'll be immediately connected to emergency services." —Alan Brill, Staten Island, N.Y.
