I don't know about Iphone but I can only lament that my galaxyS2 is not built around the basic function. Which is or rather should be phonecalls. Well making a phonecall requires a swype gesture answering one also. Then the absence of a physical button for that requires you to look at the screen. In a perfect world I would say that those two facts contribute to deter people from phoning while driving but it's not the case and it only contributes to making people who phone while driving more dangerous as they look at screen and have to use two hands to answer calls or make them.
On android when I got started, if the contacts was pushed to the groups tab it makes the phone tab disappear entirely. As a newcomer I didnt know where it went and for a few days I could only make phone calls from contact list.
My point? in an emergency situation when you are stressed out, are wounded, for a reason have only one hand available ( say your arm is in a cast or you are carrying something) or using someone else's phone. Smartphones are ridiculously hard to use to start with.

On my Lumia 920, I swipe up to unlock it. I am given with the prompt to input my pass pin, or I can just hit a button to call 911.

So if I was in a situation, and I was unconscious, and my friend with me did not have a cell phone, they could still call 911 easily on my phone, even if they do not know how to use it, they just need to know how to read.

Is it not that way for iPhone and many Androids?
