Cell phone tips

Some helpful information you can try…………
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

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 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.

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!’

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.

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….

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.

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

    Thanks for the tips. I’m a little skeptical with number 2 at best. We’ve tried it before from cell phone to cell phone from 20 miles and gotten no results. When we were a mere 1000 feet away it worked fine. Seemed like a fluke; probably worked without the help of the cell phone, but I guess it’s worth a try when you are in a bind.

    I am not sure about the distance but hey if it works in any capacity, it is better than calling a locksmith!

    But what I didn’t knew about tip nr 1 is that 112 is a worldwide emergency number, cause in Europe we have 112 as emergency number. 😀
