Own an iPhone? Why You Won’t Want to Say the Numbers 108 to Siri

iphone-siri-108.jpgThere’s a new prank circulating across social media and this one may have a negative impact on Minnesota 911 dispatch centers.

Posts are encouraging people to say the numbers 1-0-8 to Siri. But doing so will call 9-1-1. The prank has hit Minnesota with a confirmed case in Blue Earth County. 108 is the emergency number in India, but on Apple devices, it will translate it to 911 in the United States.

This is a dangerous prank that could potentially and quickly overwhelm a 911 center, especially a small one, preventing legitimate calls from getting through.

This recent news story explains how the prank works.
