A couple of days ago we heard about a bug that was irking many OnePlus 5 owners. Several OnePlus 5 owners had reported that they were unable to dial 911 on their handset. Whenever they tried to do that the handset would just reboot. That’s certainly not an ideal scenario because you want to be able to reach emergency services at all times. OnePlus has figured out the issue and will be rolling out a fix soon.
Back when this issue was first reported, OnePlus had said that it was looking into the problem and that it had reached out to the users who were experiencing this issue to find out precisely what was causing the handset to reboot when 911 was dialed.
OnePlus has now sent out a statement confirming that it has tested a software update which has resolved the issue. It adds that the software update in question is going to be rolled out shortly.”
It would put a lot of users at ease if OnePlus rolls out this fix quickly. No one wants to be caught in a situation when they have to call 911 but are unable to because that’s the moment their handset picks to reboot on its own.
That being said, this over-the-air update for the OnePlus 5 shouldn’t be long now.
