    Mobile Phone Tips
    ----- 4 THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW
    YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD 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:

    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.

    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 pass it on to your family and friends



    wandugu nimeona niwashirikishe na ninyi hii ki2 bt hapo kwenye ATM hapo imagine pin yako ni 2112 reverse yake itakuwa vp?na jee km kweli ipo applicable kwa hapa Tz itawork?

    jamani achani ku-copy na ku-paste, mambo mengine humo hayana ukweli wowote #1 & #4 naona ndiyo yanausahihi kidogo, yaliyobaki ni "paukwa pakawa"

    Asante sana mkuu kwa post yako. Nimejaribu baadhi ya option zilizo kwenye uwezo wangu zimefanya kazi isipokuwa hiyo ya tatu imegoma na betri yangu ilikuwa down sana so nilitegemea ingenisaidia.
    Nimeamua kutest baadhi ya option ili kujilidhisha kabla ya kuanza kuwaelimisha wengine.
