(1) Approximately 80% of people who order "no-dial" phones really need "auto-dial" phones.
Ordering the wrong phone wastes time and money.
Installing the wrong phone may delay getting vital help in an emergency.

(2) When your new emergency phone is installed, TRY IT. When the police officer or other emergency person answers, explain that you are testing a new phone and there is no emergency. It's a good idea to try the phone once a month or so.
(3) If you have VOIP phone service (or "on-the-cloud" or "hosted" phone service), an emergency phone may not provide proper Caller ID indication and your address to the emergency dispatch service. Ordinary analog phone service should not have this problem.
(4) If you have VOIP phone service, including phone service from a cable TV provider, it's vital to provide a battery back-up system to power the "cable modem" (which may be called something else). If that box has no electricity, you'll have no phone service. Ordinary analog phone service should not have this problem.
