A 19 year-old tow truck driver in Florida was pulled over by a cop and was stunned when the police officer asked him why he had been talking about selling drugs; what was thought to have been a private conversation between two guys in the tow truck turned out to have an extra set of ears after the driver had pocket dialed 9-1-1 on his cellphone...

Nowhere in the article does it say the man had an iPhone. In fact, it's hard to pocket dial a number on a touchscreen phone.

dude it's a touchscreen maybe he did not lock it when he put it in his pocket.

REMEMBER! that iPhone is can do smell test. Now, this iPhone can smell or can hear you conversation about something then it's automatically dail 911 to Sheriff and come to visit you.
Theres you go your privacy already in the hand of government and later on, this thing does have to dail 911 but the cop will showed up at your front door.

This dude was an idiot but it sounds to me like this town has nothing else going on to keep themselves busy. Dumb!!

Bull! This is happening way to often now, everyone that pocket dials 911 by accident seem to have been committing a crime at the time also so I say bull. Maybe government agents snooping in on smartphone owners if there's crime happening they remote dial the cops from their phones for a location fix.

What are the odds that you're gonna pocket-dial 911?
