What to you yell (spoken Korean) to the first person you see with a cel phone? Choose from below: 에 or no 에? What level of politeness? 119 전화하세요! Call 119! 119에 전화하세요! Call 119! 119에 전화해! Call 119! Thank you! ~ Nancy

it could sound unnatural if you omit 에 in the sentence. so i recommand you to use 119에 전화하세요 to older people/stranger. or if you use 해주세요 instead of 하세요 like 119에 전화해주세요 it would sound more polite. to far younger people/friends, 119에 전화해 is gonna be okay.
