FOUR THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW
YOUR MOBILE 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:
The Emergency Number worldwide for all Mobile Phones is 112. If you find
yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an
emergency, dial 112 and your mobile will search any existing network in your
area to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this
number 112 can be dialled even if the keypad is locked. This works on
all phones worldwide and is free. It is the equivalent of 000.
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 mobile 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 thousands 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: I didnít believe this when I heard about it! I rang my
daughter in Sydney from Perth when we went on holiday. She had the spare car
key. We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a mobile phone!'
Hidden Battery Power
To activate, press the keys *3370# (remember the asterisk). Do this when the
phone is almost dead.Your mobile will restart in a special way with this new
reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery life. This
reserve will get re charged when you charge your mobile next time. This
secret is in the fine print in most phone manuals. Most people however skip
this information without realising.
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 # Ensure you put an asterisk BEFORE the #06# sequence.
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 ever 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 done this, there would be no
point in people stealing mobile phones.
This secret is also in the fine print of most mobile phone manuals. It was
created for the very purpose of trying to prevent phones from being stolen.
