There is a dedicated button in the Enter PIN dialog for making an emergency call. It is located just above digit 1 of the keypad. Tapping on that button inverts the colour of the background and the digit keys.

Thank for the hint, sorry to not try this button (I was thinking is just icon for say unable to call, that all) :-/ I think need to add a lifeline icon easy for understand :-)

I agree that the icon does not resemble the Red Cross icon, or anything that would bring emergency calls into mind.

If it's a separate button it must be unambiguous. In an emergency situation you may not have the time or presence to stop and think about how it should be done. Better implementation, in my opinion, is just dialing the number with the PIN keyboard should work. The downside of that is that if PIN starting with for example 112 or 911 the first three digits would be shown.

@redge73 You closed this as a duplicate. Of what? If it was a mistake please reopen and close as answered.

I think that it would be better that the icon or button could include letters SOS or something more obivious sign that through that button you can place the emergency call. Also when you are keying emergency number to the pin code field there should to be come visible some button where will be text "Emergency call" or etc.
