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