5 Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone Could Do.......
June 3, 2010 1:23am CST
For all the folks with cell phones.This should be printed and kept in your car, purse, and wallet. Good information to have with you.There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a ife 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 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). It works fine! I tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone! THIRD Hidden Battery Power: magine 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 a50% 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 gets stolen, you can phone your service provider and give themthis 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. THANK YOU. HAPPY MYLOTTING

The title excited me, but as I read on,I found out that I've received this on my emails(I have a lot of email accounts) about a hundred times already starting from 6 years ago. Yup,this info is old. anyway, I was thinking about the car key thing the other day and I'll try it some time (and to my surprise I see you posting this). I'm guessing you haven't tried the car key thing. :) If you did, please do give us a feedback anyway, this is a great post, although very old,It's still very useful! thanks

Nice info but i disagree with some points... i) The 2nd point - the remote works on signal and not noise. so its no point in making the car hear the noise. If i am wrong plz correct me ii) The 3rd point - that code doesnt works with all mobiles such as my nokia 5130.. BTW thanks for ur info :)
