Why can't I save an emergency phone number in my addressbook?

by Kit Johnson   Last Updated March 13, 2018 08:11 AM

I live in Thailand, and the emergency medical response number to dial here is 1669.

When I try to save this number in my address book on Android, it says "Emergency Number Cannot Be Saved".

What gives? It's probably the most important number for me to save, and I can't. Is there any way to fix this?

  • My device isn't rooted.
  • I'm saving to an address book that is synced via CardDAV.
  • I'm running Android 8.0.0 on a Xiaomi Mi A1.
