1) Emergency number The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112.If you find yourself out of coverage area of your mobile network andthere 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 in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are home, call someoneon your cell phone. Hold your cell phone 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 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 itunlocked our car over a cell phone!" 3) Hidden Battery power Imagine your cell battery is very low, u r expecting an important call and u don't 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 a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will gets charged when u charge your cell next time. 4)Very Useful information To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: a)* # 0 6 # b)A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. c)This numberis unique to yourhandset. d)Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. e)Should 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 did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones.

Yes I knew that and it has come in very handy on a couple times when friends have had thier mobiles stolen and left in taxis. The only thing that I must stress is that when you purchase a new one register it straight away as the company will only block it if it is registered in your name. Otherwise we could block anyones phone if we got hold of it!!!
