> > Five Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone 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:
> >
> > 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. This will save 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! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over
> > a cell 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

> > 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.
> >
> > 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

> > simply dial: (800) FREE 411, or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any
> > charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now.
