Alcatel A392A features?

Does anyone know if the Alcatel A392A flip phone automatically locks after a certain amount of time? My elderly mother doesn't like the locking feature on her current phone and wants a cheap phone that she can immediately flip open and dial 911 if, for instance, a cougar attacks her while she's walking her dogs. . .

Thanks for any info!sf-confused_gif

I have a Alcatel A392A. I do not remember seeing if there is any lock feature, it just works.

The phone kind of has a slight flaw when it comes to dialing though. The send and end buttons are slightly below the lettering, and is not intuitive. Not a big deal to figure out, but it was something I noticed.

I like my LG A341 flip phone better as a phone, although the Alcatel A392A is probably a better phone.

If it's just for 911, I don't believe you need a sim card at all. Any cell phone is capable of phoning 911 without a sim. This would mean that you don't have to subscribe to any cell phone plan. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Hi, can anyone tell me if this phone was sold as unlocked? My mom in another city tried to put a different sim card in and received a message that said "invalid sim", which suggests that it's locked. I messaged speakout to request an unlock code and they replied that this model was sold as unlocked.

Can anyone confirm? Thanks!
