    4 IMPORTANT Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone Could Do

    For all the folks with cell phones. (This should be printed and kept in your car, purse, and wallet. Good information to have with you.)

    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:



    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 in terestingly, this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.


    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 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. To activate, press the keys
    *3370#.Your cell phone 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 phone 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.

    If your phone gets 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.

    And Finally.....

    This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends, please forward it

    The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile** is 112--Fiction!

    There is no single emergency number in use world wide. The number 112 is used in some countries but not all, nor is it used in the U.S. for emergency calls. Many countries also use 119, 999, and 911. Additionally, not all phones would in all countries to be able to even try dialing a single emergency code

    You Can Unlock Your Car Remotely Through a Cell Phone-Fiction!

    This was an eRumor that previously circulated on its own. The claim is that if you lock yourself out of your car but have a extra remote switch at your home you can phone someone at home, have the person hold the switch up to the phone, then you hold your cell phone near your car door and when the button on the other remote is pressed—your car door will open. This one is also false. It assumes that car remotes use sound waves to open your door but most of them use radio signals, not sound. A radio signal will not travel over the audio of a cell phone.

    Your remote car key operates by sending a weak, encrypted radio signal to a receiver inside the automobile, which in turn activates the door locks.

    Since the system works on radio waves, not sound, the only conceivable way a signal from your spare remote could be picked up by one cell phone and relayed to your car's onboard receiver by another would be if both phones were capable of sending and receiving at exactly the same frequency as the remote itself — which they can't be, given that all remote entry devices operate at frequencies between 300 and 500 MHz, while all mobile phones, by law, operate at 800 MHz and higher.
    There may be hidden battery power in your cell phone-Fiction!

    If there is a phone that offers this feature, we have not found it. The eRumor claims that if you punch in a certain code on your cell phone you will access reserve power. It mentions Nokia in particular but the folks at Nokia told TruthOrFiction.com that they do not have any phone with that capability.
    How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone-True but...!

    This doesn't work on every phone, but some phones do reveal what is called an International Mobile Equipment identity or "IEMI" number when punching in the code of "*#06#." This is especially true for GSM/DCS/PCS phones. If such a phone is stolen, it can be "greylisted" or "blacklisted." Greylisted means that the phone can still be used but can also be tracked. Blacklisting means that the phone cannot be used.
    The eRumor is a collection of alleged little-known facts about cell phones
