Why You Should Never Say ‘108’ To Siri

Inundating Siri the automated voice on you iPhone with strange requests when your bored has become a hilarious pastime for many, but there's one phrase you should never say.

A prankster in the UK caused havoc for emergency services when she urged everyone with an iPhone to say the number 108 to Siri, adding, "you'll thank me later." Making that request puts you straight through to the emergency services, as 108 is the equivalent of 000 in India. Siri recognises the number and calls for help.

While you might not think the prank is that serious, it puts an unnecessary strain on the system and emergency services are could be very dangerous. Authorities are warning you could also be charged for wasting emergency service workers' time. 

Iphone users are also being warned about saying the numbers 112, 110, 999 and the US number 911 to Siri.
