Your cell phone does more than you think…

by on Sep.16, 2006, under General Info

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:

1.) Have an emergency?

The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile** is 112 . If you find
yourself out of 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.**

2.) Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keys? 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).

3.) Hidden Battery power

Imagine your cell battery is very low , you are expecting an important call
and you don’t have a charger. Nokia phones come with a reserve battery.
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.

4.) How do I 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.
