17-18-108-999, Bingo? No, the viral trick to troll Siri

It's not the first time Siri leaves us with poker face and surely, it will not be the last either. In fact, a few months ago we told you what happened if we told Siri the number "108" (hint: call the emergency services). But it is not the only number that causes the same effect.
In fact, we have found in Reddit a similar case, yes, this time with the number 17. And it is that apparently this number would be used in France to call the police. So neither short nor lazy have proceeded to do the test. And indeed, it fulfills its promise. Test it. You will have 5 seconds to cancel the call, because with these things is not played .
A little lower in the thread of Reddit is said that apart from that the 17 corresponds to the number of the police in France, 18 is the fire department and 15 serves to call the ambulance. What if we try? Curiously, while 18 achieves the same effect as 17, with 15 we do not get the expected response. Will that user of Reddit be right, or was it just a coincidence?
Another user reports that if we try with 999, 998 and 997, exactly the same thing will happen, since they are the emergency services of Poland. Almost hopeless, we tried. Bingo! They all call emergency services directly . Of course, if we are in a critical situation, they are not very simple numbers to say, unlike the "17".
The thread continues to inform us about the emergency numbers of other countries like Russia, which are 02, 03, and 04 respectively. Encouraged by previous success, we try and success is resounding .
Actually, solving the mystery, Apple implements this function so that you are where you are, if you say the emergency number of your country, even if you are in Angola, you miss the emergency services of the country where you are. If you are interested in knowing what other numbers will cause the same effect, here is the list of emergency numbers from around the world .
