Who Knew Your Cell Phone Could Do All of That

THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO.

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:

FIRST Subject: 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 Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may co me 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 Subject: 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 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
gets 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 he 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
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< BR>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.

Thank you--and I like your new site. I guess you figured it out. Leave it to Suzanne.

We (ben) locked Jesse in the car and it was very traumatic--for Ben and I, he thought it was just fine.
