Using a mobile in emergency.
This is a really good explanation of why and how you should use 112 in the hillwalking context.

Did you know it bypasses PIN codes on the phone to contact the emergency services? This means that you can use anyone else's phone. And it will use any carrier's mast, not just your own carriers'.

This is a detailed explanation of how to do it and several other advantages of 112.

The video was based in Scotland but is relevant to most countries. In Ireland (Republic) it is possible to register your use of 112 for texting or SMS as suggested in the video. Not every mobile communications provider is participating in the texting service at present. emobile, Meteor, O2, Three and Vodafone currently work.

If you register your phone for 112 SMS usage (which you must do in the Republic and probably elsewhere) you can optionally provide additional information such as next of kin info.
