    Assuming people bother to check their text messages, this could be useful.

    My guess is that this will be tower based for geographical positioning, especially as a lot of phones do not have a gps chip. So its not a big brother thing.
    At the end of 2005, all cell phone carriers were required to provide the ability to trace cell phone calls to a location within 100 meters or less.

    This system of reverse 9-11 is a great idea.

    I think it was CSI NY that showed how well such a system could work.

    As long as they don't do weekly tests at 3AM it sounds like a wonderful idea
