FIVE THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO

Recommended Posts

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:

FIRST

Emergency

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobiles 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 ne twork 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

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. Ho ld 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' Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it

unlocked our car over a cell phone!"

THIRD

Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your cell batter y is very low. To ac tivate,

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.

FOURTH

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 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) FREE 411, or

(800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at all.

Program this into your cell phone now.

I have tried #2 with at least 10 phones on 4 or 5 different cars and have never been able to get it work.  That would definitely be cool though.

Even without a service provider you can still dial 911  ;)

I can tell you number 2 does not work.  However, the other stuff comes in handy!  Thanks.  8-)

Maybe all cell phone service providers or all automobile makes don't?

Fords and Cingular does work. I know, I've done it.

The Number two trick works with Samsungs phones and you can used it to open all most any device that can be open using a tone signal
