Q: If we dial or text 911 from our cellphones, that still have our (out of state) phone number ... will we get connected to the local 911 center? A: Thank you for this question, you are not the only person concerned about cellphone calls to 911. The number on your phone or where it was purchased has no effect on 911 calls; the 911 call goes through the nearest cellular phone tower, so the area that the call is placed in is the jurisdiction that will receive the call for help.
