THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELLPHONE COULD DO

Hey pals one of my friends sent me the following mail as emergency. Hope this one will be of some use to atleast some of you. If you have already seen it please ignore and if you know something more that will help all of us in times of EMERGENCY do post here.

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

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: –

EMERGENCY
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.**

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 car over a cell phone!”*

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.

    Interesting post about cell phones. I couldn’t open my car door with a cell phone though because I don’t have one of those electronic gadgets to unlock/lock my car.
