Useful Tips

THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELLPHONE COULD...

Just wanted to share this tips to you sent by an e friend...

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:
*I*
*The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile** 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 if the keypad
is locked. **Try it out.**
*II*
*Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have
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 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
carover a cell phone!"*
*III*
Subject: Hidden Battery power
Imagine your cell battery is very low,you are expecting an important
call and you 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 get charged when you charge your cell
next time.
AND
*IV*
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.
