999 is the emergency number in the UK - this is exactly my point, how does your
phone know that 911 (or indeed 112) is an emergency number? Are these things
pre-programmed on the phone by vendors?

It could be done via a look-up table on the country code I suppose, via listing
available operators and using the current mapping table of mcc to dc... But
rather than making a huge emergency-number table, I'd like to know how other
phones do this, or if anyone has any further insight into this - also, listing
available operators is a blocking operation (in terms of gsm operations) that
can take upwards of a minute, so this isn't really something we could rely on...
