Things you never knew about your cellphone!


* 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.**

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 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!"*

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:
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.

Um... Yeah, I do NOT recommend you try out 112 on your mobile unless you're actually in an emergency. Besides, 112 should be common knowledge by now.

The one about the power doesn't work. There isn't any reserve power in your cell phone. Also the remote control to open your car doesn't work either. Check for yourself.

The remote feature DOES work...

You're just a goddamn idiot without friends to try it properly...

you have to press call after enering the code (*3370#). at least on a nokia.

The "hidden battery reserve" is a half truth (or more specifically, a lie).

What the code actually does is change the quality of your voice transmission - A lower setting uses less power, and hence the battery lasts longer.

You'll most likely need to change it back manually, too.

While I'm at it, these days service providers can trace which phone you've been using, and hence can block the mobile even if you don't know the serial.

Hence you should give them a call regardless as to whether you wrote it down.

This usually means you can't block someone else's phone by giving a bogus code, too.

"112" does not work in Canada.
