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:

I: 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.

Swali. Je hii number kwa Tanzania inafanya kazi.? Kama inafanya ukipiga inakwenda kikosi cha zimamoto na uokozi au polisi au wapi ?Naombeni tujaribu tuone na tuambiane.

II: 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!" .

Mhhh is this possible .. lets prove

III: Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# your cell 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 next time.

Tumabiane observation zetu kuhusu haya maelezo je yana ukweli.

Zamani ilikuwa inafanya kazi hapa Tz lakini kuna kipindi wamebadili ikawa 911. Sijui ni kwa nini! Jaribu utaona

This MIGHT be possible if lock uses RF signal and the Remote is able to somehow modulate signals that will be superimposed on signal and then decoded at your receiver and somehow get radiated to remote receiver at your car. But chances are very dim

Analysis: Beware forwarded emails offering esoteric tips and tricks "you never knew." Most of the claims in this message are either false or have limited applicability. We'll examine them one by one:

CLAIM: The worldwide emergency number for cell phones is 112.
Not quite. Throughout most of Europe and a few countries outside of the EU, dialing 112 will connect users to local emergency services. However, the number won't work in North America, nor most of Asia and Africa. Many, but not all, cell phone models will allow special emergency numbers to be dialed even if the phone lacks a SIM card or the keypad is locked.

CLAIM: Unlock a car door with your cell phone and a spare remote key.
False. As discussed previously in these pages, cell phones and remote keyless entry systems work on entirely different radio frequencies. Therefore, cell phones are incapable of re-transmitting the signal from a remote key to unlock a car door.

CLAIM: Press *3370# to access 'reserve battery power.'
False. On some Nokia phones, users can punch in special codes and toggle between speech codec modes to 1) enhance voice transmission quality at the cost of diminished battery performance, or 2) enhance battery performance by decreasing voice quality. Apparently, some users have misconstrued the latter as "tapping into reserve battery power." On that score the email is doubly erroneous because *3370# is the code for enhancing voice quality, so using it actually decreases battery life!

CLAIM: Press *#06# to disable a stolen cell phone.
Not exactly. On some cell phone models, but not all, pressing *#06# will cause the phone's 15-digit International Mobile Equipment Identity to be displayed. Some service providers, but not all, can use that information to deactivate the handset. In any case, it isn't necessary to supply an IMEI number to cancel your cellular account in the event of theft; simply call your provider, give them the appropriate account information, and tell them the phone was stolen.

CLAIM: Make 411 calls on your cell phone without charge by dialing (800) FREE 411.
Basically true (see previous commentary on Free 411), though cell phone users may still incur a charge for minutes used, depending on the specifics of their plan.

haaha sikutaka kuweka hii sababu nilipenda tujaribu practical observation zetu . Yes hatutakiwi kuamini maandishi yote lakini kama wana teknolojia inabidi tuwe wadadisi, wachunguzi, tupende kujaribu na tuwe tabia ya kuprove vitu wenyewe kama tuna uwezo na nyenzo.

Sasa je kweli 112 haifanyi kazi tanzania???? binafsi nimejaribu sijaipata ila kuna wengine wanasema inakwenda polisi. Je wamejaribu au ni imani tutunazokuwa nazo kwa maandishi na maneno ya watu wengine

Theme is lets be practical ndio maana mwisho nimemalizia kwa sentensi Tumabiane observation zetu kuhusu haya maelezo je yana ukweli.
