THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD
> This is brilliant, everyone should have a copy of this email in their
> 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 dialled 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 mobile 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
> 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 mobile phone!'
> THIRD Hidden Battery Power
> Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys
> *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument
> will show a
50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when
> you charge your mobile next time.
> FOURTH How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
> To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following
> 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.
> ATM - PIN Number Reversal - Good to Know
> If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM
> machine, you can notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse.
> For example, if your pin number is 1234, then you would put in 4321. The
> ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is backwards from the ATM
> card you placed in the machine. The machine will still give you the
> money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be
> immediately dispatched to the location. This information was recently
> broadcast on CTV by Crime Stoppers however it is seldom used because
> people just don't know about it. Please pass this along to everyone.
> This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass
> on to your family and friends
