    5 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELL 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 dialed 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 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!"

    THIRD
    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.

    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 phones 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.

    FIFTH
    Free Directory Service for Cells
    Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411
    information calls when they don't have to. Most of us do not carry a
    telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation even
    more of a problem. When you need to use the 411 information option,
    simply dial: (800) FREE 411, or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at
    all. Program this into your cell phone now. This is the kind of
    information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family
    and friends.




    Anybody know if any of these are true?

    I tried it.. didn't work.

    I think the *3370# one is for Nokia phones only. The 112 one works though.
