5 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.
Yourmobile 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 Emergency
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 Emergency
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 next time.

FOURTH Emergency
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.
And Finally....

FIFTH Emergency
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)
FREE-411, or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now.

according to the Snopes dot com people.....this is a hoax. So I guess if it works for some of you, you should let them know.

go to the website and copy this into it: Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show
a 50% increase in battery


and then see what you think!dunno
