    4 Interesting Things You Probably Didnt Know Your Mobile 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: -

    *EMERGENCY*
    *I*

    *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.


    *II*


    *Subject: 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 boot).


    *III*

    Subject: 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.


    AND


    *IV*

    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 gets
    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.
