I don't think there is anyone these days who does not have a cell phone. We eat, sleep and do everything with our cell phone by our side. It has become our life line.
I bet, however, that you never realized some of the things your cell phone can do for you. It can be a mini-survival kit, life saver or emergency tool kit.
These are some things your cell phone can do for you:
1. EMERGENCY - Did you know that there is a worldwide Emergency Number for cell phones? The number is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an Emergency, simply dial 112 and your phone will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you. Interestingly enough, this number can be dialed even if the keypad is locked!
2. HIDDEN BATTERY POWER - You discover that your cell phone battery is very low. You can access a reserve by pressing the keys *3370#. Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged the next time you charge your cell phone. This could definitely be a life saver!
3. DISABLE A STOLEN CELL PHONE - First, check your Mobile phone's serial number, and 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 safe. If your phone is stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your phone so even if a thief changes your SIM card, your phone will be completely useless. You might never get your phone back but at least you know that whoever stole it won't be able to use it or sell it. Just imagine if everyone did this, there would no longer be a reason for people to steal mobile phones!
4. DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE FOR FREE - Cell phone companies these days are charging between $1.00 and $2.00 (or more) for 411 information calls. Most of us don't carry a telephone directory in our vehicle. I don't even keep one in my home anymore! Instead, when you need to use the 411 option, simply dial: (800)FREE411 or (800)373-3411 and you will not incur any charges. Program this number into your phone for safe-keeping.
