    5 Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone Could Do

    For all the folks with cell phones.
    (This should be printed and kept in your car, purse, and wallet.
    Good information to have with you.)

    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 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 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 Hidden Battery Power

    Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#.
    Your cell phone 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 phone 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: *#06#. 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 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)FREE411, or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at all.
    Program this into your cell phone now.
    However, you will have to listen to an ad firsr and will have to accept a 'text message' at regular cell cost per text.

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