    5 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO.............

    Maybe you've seen this before, but if you haven't it's an interesting read. I tried #4 and it worked so maybe the others do to.

    Enjoy.............



    5 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL PHONE COULD DO
    >
    >There are a few things that can be done in times of 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.
    >
    >
    >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. 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!'
    >
    >THIRD
    >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.

    >FOURTH
    >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 appears 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
    or sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people
    stealing mobile phones.
    >And Finally....
    >
    >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 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.

    Thanks for the Snopes website. I didn't know about that site. Now I know where to check some of these e-mails I get.
