How do I remove the emergency call button?

The best way to remove the emergency call button from your Android device is to disable the app in your device settings. Typically, this involves going to Settings > Apps > Emergency Call > Disable. This will disable the emergency call button from appearing on your device’s display.

Why does my phone keeps calling emergency?

This might happen for a variety of reasons. It sounds like your phone could be automatically dialing 911 without you knowing. It could be due to a glitch in the software, which is often the case with newer phones.

It could also be related to a problem with the circuitry in your phone or on the network. It’s possible that the auto-dial feature on your phone is malfunctioning or that it has malware installed which is causing it to make calls to emergency services.

If the issue is software related, you might be able to resolve the issue by performing a factory reset or by installing some kind of anti-virus software. If it seems to be a hardware related problem, you should contact your phone manufacturer for advice and help.
