DO !!!


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:






Emergency Number worldwide for all Mobile Phones

is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your

mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112

and your mobile will search any existing network in your area to establish the emergency

number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialled even

if the keypad is locked. This works on all phones worldwide and is free.



Have you lost your keys to the car?


Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. A good reason to own a cell phone:

If you've lost your keys to 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 thousands 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).








To activate, press the keys *3370# (remember the asterisk). Do this when the phone is almost dead.

Your mobile will restart in a special way with this new reserve and the instrument will show a 50%

increase in battery life. This reserve will get re charged when you charge your mobile next time.

This secret is in the fine print in most phone manuals. Most people however skip this information without realising.



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 #

Ensure you put an asterisk BEFORE the #06# sequence.


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 ever 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 done this, there would be no point in people

stealing mobile phones..

This secret is also in the fine print of most mobile phone manuals. It was created for the very purpose of trying to prevent phones from being stolen.


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.

All ATM’s carry this emergency sequencer by law.


This information was recently broadcast on Crime Stoppers

however it is seldom used because people just don't know about it.

Never knew any of that. I only use my mobile when I need to make a call from in the car (parked up not on the move) It makes a call and can recieve a call, what more do you need a phone for?


All these multi function mobile phones are too technical for me, but then again I am just old and thick..... :lol:
