Some OnePlus 5 Owners Plagued By Rebooting Bug When Dialing 911

OnePlus 5

It turned out OnePlus recycled the OnePlus 3T's display and reversed it, which is why the issue isn't considered a problem. In the three years since, it's moved all the way on to the OnePlus 5 which appears to be boasting an unusual and unsettling feature: it reboots if you try to call 911. The short video shows Morrelli's OnePlus 5 abruptly rebooting when he dials 911. Users in the United Kingdom are also reporting that trying to dial emergency services in that country (999) also results in a reboot.

It could be the phone encounters a problem when using Global Positioning System to provide a location to the person at the other end of the call, something emergency service operators look to leverage.

Several other OnePlus 5 users' comments on the same Reddit thread and others state they are seeing the same issue, and so far it's been confirmed to affect both 911 in the U.S. and 999 in the UK. Users who have the issue should have a backup phone or a landline just in case.

"Confirmed! I had to call 911 after a vehicle in front of me flipped over". The most severe issue to date concerns the display, which has a "natural" jelly effect when scrolling.

Delta Airlines Responds to Ann Coulter Criticisms: "Unacceptable and Unnecessary"
The airline has issued a pair of deliciously catty tweets , the first one of which revealed that Coulter raised hell over $30. Coulter was forced to give up additional leg room on a flight, by having her seat changed, according to the Daily Mail.

The problem doesn't appear to be affecting every single OnePlus 5 owners, but the problem is widespread enough to still be incredibly risky.

"We have contacted the customer and are now looking into the issue", the company said, according to the report. "Phone rebooted after dialling", another OnePlus 5 user said.

That's the one feature that should work on any kind of phone, no matter if it's a dumb device or a flagship handset like the OnePlus 5.
