ICE

noun; acronym
In case of emergency; data to be used for emergency contact, especially emergency contact phone number in a cell phone. This seems to be a fairly new acronym developed in an effort to define a standard title name to be used for emergency contact numbers on cell phones. It appears to be fairly new but is becoming widespread due to chain E-mails that have been circulated recommending that people create an entry in the cell phone contact list called ICE where they store a number to be called in case of an emergency. Evidence suggests the term may have been formed or at least popularized following the London train terrorist attacks in 2005.
 
The idea is that you store the word I C E in your mobile Phone address book, and next to it enter the number of the person you would want to be contacted In Case of Emergency.
