Sometimes the internet throws up some really reticent pranks.
Most are flattering submissive but every so mostly one comes along that has some flattering nasty consequences.
A couple of days ago someone called ‘Latoya Beckett’ (probably not a genuine person) wrote a open post on Google job on ‘All iPhone Users’ to ‘say 108 to Siri’.
She promised: ‘you’ll appreciate me later’ with a smiley face to make it seem all the some-more innocent.
But rather than the fun easter egg the iPhone user competence have been expected, doing this instead takes the tourist by to emergency services.
The implications are flattering gnarly too as this can waste time on an already overstretched emergency call complement – and potentially means nonessential problems.
And whatever you do – don’t tumble for the close your eyes for 5 seconds thing given that’s 5 seconds you could be using to finish the call.
108 is an emergency series for police and ambulances in India, definition dialing it elsewhere can re-route the tourist to that country’s emergency services.
How much this re-route would cost is unclear. Not only that but wasting police time is a rapist offence.
Other numbers includes in identical pranks are: 112, 000 and even 911.
911 asks you not tumble for the antic of asking Siri to call 112 (Europe’s chronicle of 911). Your phone will call 911 and that’s no joke.

One iPhone user who was hoodwinked into revelation Siri ‘108’ pronounced she was feeling ‘scared’ given making the call’.
She wrote: ‘Jesus we suspicion that this was like the one where Siri abuse you out or something. we hit cancel right away, but now I’m scared. Good lord.’
Others simply voiced their dismay, simply asking: ‘Why is this funny?’.
Metro.co.uk did not test out the antic (for apparent reasons) but there are countless videos online demonstrating how it works.
Instead try asking Siri the definition of life (LOL) or if it believes in God or (best yet) if it will marry you.
