THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO

THINGS  YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO
I haven't tried all of these. Ron.
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
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.


SECOND
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. This  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!"

THIRD
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.

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 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.

FIFTH
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.

  1. Thanks Ron, very interesting. I haven't tried but I doubt I can unlock my car's door locks with my phone. I'll give it a try someday.
