Cell Phone Secrets – You May Want To Know
That Could Save You Money, Time & Stress
Here’s some important and useful information that just might come in handy for all you folks out there in today’s real world with cell phones. I strongly recommend that you print this post and keep it in a handy location (maybe your car, purse, wallet, desk, bulletin board, etc) for future reference – Very Good Information to have with/near you. There are a few things that can be done in times of dire emergencies or unforeseen circumstances. Your mobile phone can actually be a ‘lifesaver’ or an emergency ‘survival tool’. Check out some things that you can do with it …..
1st – In an Emergency
The Worldwide Emergency Number for Mobile is 112.
Dial 112 – and the mobile device will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and surprisingly, this 112 number can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out for yourself.
2nd – Keys Locked in your Car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry?
3rd – Hidden Battery Power
Imagine your cell battery is very low – To activate your mobile phone press the keys *3370#.
This could really be a lifesaver also!
4th – How to Disable a STOLEN Mobile 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 have the peace-of-mind knowing that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either. Just thinking that if everybody did this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
