    Subject: 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 dialed even if the keypad is locked.

    Try it out.


    Subject: 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

    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).


    Subject: Hidden Battery Power

    Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# and your cell will restart with this reserve. The instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.

    This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.


    Subject: 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. 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.

    Now I don't understand why TCRA was hesitating to cooperate with likewise EA bodies in blacklisting mobilephones stolen in East Africa?

    Your contribution please!
