THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO :

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

Subject: Emergency  

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.  

Try it out.

Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car?  

Does your car have remote keyless entry?  

This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If  

you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at  

home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your  

cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your  

car door and have the person at your home press the unlock  

button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end.  

Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive  

your keys to you.  

Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,  

and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote"  

for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).  

Editor's Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it  

unlocked our car over a cell phone!"

Subject: Hidden Battery Power  

Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press  

the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with this reserve  

and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.  

This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell  

next time.

 

Subject: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?  

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the  

following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #  

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number  

is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it  

somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can  

phone your service provider and give them this code.  

They will then be able to block your handset so even  

if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally  

useless.  

You probably won't get your phone back, but at least  

you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either.  

If everybody does this, there would be no point in people  

stealing mobile phones.

Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or  

more for 411 information calls when they don't have to.  

Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our  

vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a  

problem. When you need to use  

the 411 information option,  

simply dial: (800) FREE 411, or (800) 373-3411 without  

incurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell  

phone now.

This is the kind of information people don't  

mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends.
