Question:   Are there Commission rules that apply to the use of analog cellular phones granted authorization before February 13, 2000?  If a phone received a grant of equipment authorization before February 13, 2000 and is currently being mass produced, but does not have a special procedure incorporated for processing 911 calls, is it required to comply with Section 22.921 of the Commission's rules?

Answer:   All analog cellular telephones manufactured after February 13, 2000 must include the 911 provisions.  Phones manufactured prior to this date can be used, however, after December 31, 2005, the license holder is required to ensure that 95 percent of all phones are capable of Enhanced 911 location locating technology.  Any other questions regarding Section 22.921 should be directed to the Commission's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau.
