5 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:


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 OUT?
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!"


THIRD - 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 the next time.


FOURTH – DISABLE A STOLEN 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 gets 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 will know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it. If everybody does this, there would be no point

in people stealing mobile phones.


FIFTH – FREE DIRECTORY SERVICE FOR CALLS
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 is 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.
