NOT SURE IF THIS IS ALL TRUE BUT IT SOUNDS GOOD

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 '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
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 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 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.

Also -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 passs it
on to your
family and friends

Things you never knew that your phone can't actually do and probably the reason you never knew about them.

Maybe 1 & 4 will work but 2, 3 & 5 nooooooooooo

my pin is 5555 never seen police

The battery one dosen't sound true, if it was true, you'd probably get a message come up on your phone when the battery was low asking if you wanted to use 'Reserve' power.

That's probably due to the digits in your card number. PM me the number and I'll let you know. :whistling:

Why would I do that and deprive you of your usual moan about people not googling everything before they post something, It's just abit of fun and if it makes me look stupid for not knowing about mobile phones(which I don't use) then it's nothing you need to worry about:p

I heard if you say "Elephant Juice" to a lip reader they think your saying "I Love You", They have to be a deaf lip reader otherwise they just hear you saying "Elephant Juice"
