I invented UrgentCall™ so that people can feel at peace knowing that they won’t miss an important call. When I missed the phone call about my dad going to the hospital for chest pain, I was devastated.

No longer do individuals have to lose sleep over the thought of missing urgent phone calls. UrgentCall™ is a mobile app that notifies call recipients of an urgent situation, bypassing a smartphone’s silent or “Do Not Disturb” feature allowing the phone to ring until the call is answered. UrgentCall™ inventor, Shary Nassimi, missed an urgent call about his father being taken to the emergency room after experiencing chest pain. It was at this point that Nassimi invested over $250,000 to create a life-changing app for individuals to never again lose sleep over missing important news, whether they are busy, at work, or asleep.

Based on research from, 83 percent of people sleep next to their phones. To avoid breaking sleep cycles from the sound of a text message or phone call, individuals place their phone on silent, and are more prone to missing phone calls that need their immediate attention.

“I invented UrgentCall™ so that people can feel at peace knowing that they won’t miss an important call. When I missed the phone call about my dad going to the hospital for chest pain, I was devastated,” said Nassimi. “Missing that phone call prompted me to research other mobile apps and services that can connect loved ones in the event of an emergency. I’m proud to say that no other app is able to what UrgentCall™ does, which is challenging the caller to verify that the situation is urgent, then ensuring the recipient’s phone rings until the call is answered.”

Upon installation, the app is simple to use. Users create an account and select up to ten contacts who will receive the user’s designated UrgentCall™ number. UrgentCall™ works by giving individuals their very own emergency contact number. If one of their selected contacts calls that number, they are asked if it is an emergency. If they respond with a yes, the silent setting is bypassed and the phone will ring. Even if there is no reception, the receiver will get the emergency call. Regardless of the phone’s ringer setting, the phone will never stop ringing until the recipient answers the call.

The UrgentCall™ app was granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in a highly accelerated time and is available in the United States and Canada, however it can be used all over the world. UrgentCall™ is free to download in the Android Play Store and is available for Android’s version 2.2 and higher. This app is free to try and costs $9.90 per year to activate the service.

About Urgent Call Tech

UrgentCall™ is a mobile app designed to notify call recipients of an emergency situation, regardless of their phone’s setting. The easy-to-use mobile app allows users to receive emergency calls from anywhere in the world regardless of a “do not disturb” setting from any type of phone: mobile, landline, and VOIP telephones.

It works even if there’s no reception and the phone never stops ringing until the user gets the emergency call. This only works with their selected contacts.

UrgentCall™ alleviates the stress of everyday worries. Its intuition is built through customizable features including the option to suspend UrgentCall™ for temporary amounts of time and unique ringtones to help distinguish callers. UrgentCall™ was created in the United States and patented and due to its pioneering technology, has additional patents pending.
