5 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:
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.

  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!'  

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.

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 
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.
