People testing new cell phone with 911

It seems that a lot of people were getting cell phones as Christmas presents; and a lot of them in the US were stupid enough to dial "911" just to test out their new phone, just because it's the first number that came to their mind.

" 'Our phones start exploding with hang-ups (on Christmas),' said CHP Sgt... 'The operator says, 'You've reached the CHP, and what is your emergency?' Then 'click.' Or they'll say, 'I'm just testing out my cell phone.' "
