I received this info in my E-mail and decided to share it with the family:


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:


The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find
yourself out of t he 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

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 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 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) 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
