3 very useful mobile tips

1. Emergency Number The emergency number worldwide 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 while the KEYPAD IS LOCKED. Try it out. 2. Locked the keys in the car? Your car has remote keys? This may come handy someday. Good reason to own a cellphone: IF you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are home, call someone on your cellphone. Hold your cellphone about a foot from your car door and have the other person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no objext. 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, u r expecting an important call and you dont have a charger. Nokia instrument comes with a reserve battery. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when u charge your cell next time. Sorry for those who aren't NOKIA users!! :)

But Sony Ericsson has good battery in the first place. Even when my cell is warning of a low battery, I can still use it for half a day. So I don't need the reserve battery feature in my phone. As for the first two abilities, I think they work for all kinds of cellphones.
