I can't help thinking the boring old "Emergency" might be better than
yet another possibly missleading trendy acronym. To me ICE will always
be In-Circuit Emulator....

the first number in my phone labeled "!home", is fairly obviously the
one to call in such circumstances.

I'm with Austin "In Car Entertainment". There are other problems as
well, take this scenario. You lose or have your phone stolen. New
"owner" looks for your ICE details, makes a call, gets your NOK out of
the house whilst they have a rummage. How do they get your address
from just a number and name, plenty of legit places on the 'net,
always assuming that your phone doesn't also store a full address or
even your NOK tell them to confirm their identy before the "bad news"
is passed.

Apart from that security aspect just a hoax call from a "friend"
wouldn't be nice.

I've always thought that having 'home' or either 'mum' or 'dad' in my
phone would be sufficient, and hoped that anybody who was trying to
use my phone to contact someone in an emergency would look there
first.

Last time i found a mobile phone, we rang 'dad' to reunite it with its
owner.

If you live alone (which increasing numbers of us do), then "home" might
not be very successful.
