Why doesn’t the TT970 have MMS?

What is the Emergency Assistance Button on the back?

It’s a button that can be programmed to call whichever number or number you choose so that everyone you want to be notified in case of emergency gets a phone call.

The SOS button will also send out emergency text messages and your current location to your pre-set loved ones. Please Note: If one of the emergency numbers has a voicemail system, the phone will assume that the call has been answered and will no longer call any more of the preset numbers.
