FW: Things your cell phone CAN do???

Can't personally vouch for the validity of everything here but whoever wrote this seems to know what they are talking about. Maybe something here that will truly be of value.....


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:

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.

Subject: 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
Editor's Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over
a cell phone!"

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.

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 wo uld be no point in people stealing mobile
And Finally....

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.

This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on
to your family and friends.
