Here are 5 important things

you can do with your cell phone

when you need help....

For all the folks with cell phones. (This should be printed and kept in
your car, purse, and wallet. Good information to have with you.)

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 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.

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).

Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys
*3370#. Your cell phone 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 phone 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: *#06#. A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This
number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere

If your phone gets stolen, you can call (from a different 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.
