I received this through a chain of emails and I thought it was something everybody should be aware of. I would print this list out and keep in in your car or wallet for the future. Here areÂ 4Â things you might not have known about your CellÂ PhoneÂ Â
There are a few things thatÂ can be done in times of grave emergencies.Â Your cell phone canÂ actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.Â Check out the things that you can do with it:Â
Â 1.) Emergency:Â The Emergency NumberÂ worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of theÂ coverage area of your mobile network and there is an Emergency, dialÂ 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish theÂ emergency number for you, and interestingly, this number 112 can beÂ dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.Â Â
2.) Hidden BatteryÂ Power: Imagine your cell battery isÂ very low. If you're like me, my cell phone battery seems to start dying towards the end of the day. To activate, press the keys *3370#. Your cell phone willÂ restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50%Â increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you chargeÂ your cell phone next time.Â
3.) How to Disable a STOLEN CellÂ Phone:Â To check your cell phone'sÂ serial number, key in the following Digits on yourÂ phone *#06# , thenÂ a 15-digit code will appearÂ on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it downÂ and keep it somewhere safe.Â If your phone is stolen, youÂ can call your service provider and give them this code. They willÂ then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes theÂ SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't getÂ your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can'tÂ use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no pointÂ in people stealing mobile phones.
4.) Free Directory Service for Cell Phones:Â Cell phone companies areÂ charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls whenÂ they don't have to. Most of us do not carry a telephone directory inÂ our vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a problem. WhenÂ you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial (800)Â FREE411Â or (800)Â 373-3411Â without incurring any chargeÂ at all.Â Program this into your cell phone now!Â *This is sponsored byÂ McDonalds.
