    I think this is a very good idea and maybe we need some standard like SOS across the world


    again my thoughts are with the friends and relatives who still do not know, about there loved ones, and some terrible scenes on the lunchtime news today.

    Couldn't ICE also stand for that really cold stuff that water turns into.

    I dunno, it sounds like a pretty stupid idea to me calling it ICE. People usually put in their 'home' number or 'mum' or something like that. If you really wanted to let people know you wanted them to contact someone you'd put in Next of Kin or something like that.

    I've found a couple of mobile phones and I've just looked through the address book and called their 'home' number or whatever.

    Ok I don't wanna see insensitive here, or obnoxious or whatever, but by looking at some of their injuries, I really doubt a mobile phone would've survived some of those blasts. A wallet might be more likely to survive a blast that a tiny smashable phone.

    But still I like the idea... but there might be better ways of making it happen.

    exactly what Meysha said. in first place they will contact what you have under "home" "mum" or "honey". What's more many ppl in PL have their adress and contact number to home in their wallets so there aren't problems with notifying people. We were also taught in preliminary schools to have out blood group written in your wallet in case of emergency or blood transfusion.

    I don't think it's a bad idea.

    Tragedies like this often make people become a little more concious of how they might act in an emergency situation.

    My parents got cell phones (if you know my parents, that is a paradigm shift in itself) after 9/11.
