  • 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 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.**


    * Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?*
    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 hone 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!"*  
    Subject: Hidden Battery power

    Imagine your cell battery is very low , you are expecting an important call and you don't have a charger. Nokia instrument comes with a reserve battery. 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 s


    1. I have to try number 2, that sounds really cool and useful.

    2. No, I did not know ANY of this. I do know folk who have had to call the locksmith to unlock a car so will spread that neat bit of info around.

    3. These tricks sound fantastic, I really have to try them out sometime.

    4. I have had a phone stolen before and That tip would save a lot of stress, worrying about minutes used by a thief.

    5. The only one I know is number one, but the rest is new information.

    6. Oh, these are funny... I've seen the bogus thing about the locked car door before but a couple of these "urban legends" were new to me... LOL!

    7. All these are new to me. Very cool! I have a Nokia, but I didn't know about the reserve battery. I'll try it to see if it works.

    8. All great hints and tips to try to remember...especially the locked keys one!

    9. I have heard of a few of these...just have never tried them. I want to try the locked keys in the car.

    10. I have never heard any of these before. This is very interesting!

    11. The keys locked in the car sounds like one I would need. I've locked keys in the car a few times but luckily I was able to run inside and grab the other set.
