5 Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone Could Do

I received this information from a friend…I have not verified all of it but it sounds like
it could be true…give it a try.

For all the folks with cell phones.

There are a few things that can be done in times of 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:


FIRST (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.


SECOND (Locked Keys in Car)


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).


THIRD (Hidden Battery Power)


Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#. Your cell phone
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 phone next time.


FOURTH (How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?)


To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following Digits on your phone:


*#06#.


A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it
down and keep it somewhere safe.


If your phone is 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.


And Finally….


FIFTH (Free Directory Service for Cells)


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) FREE411 or (800) 373-3411


without incurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now.
