    Things you NEVER knew your cell phone can do ?

    Advertisement



    I got this email from a friend, that made some interesting claims. I copied the contents below. Can anyone verify this stuff??

    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
    Subject: True 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
    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 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). Check it out, it works fine!

    THIRD
    Subject: 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 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 SIMS 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.And Finally....[/FONT]

    FIFTH
    Subject: Frivilious Cell Charges.

    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.

    I tried all the codes on my Chocolate phone and BB.

    I cannot dial 112 with either phone locked
    I have to go home before I can try out number 2
    dialing *3370# does nothing, BB Gives an error
    *#06# from my BB does bring up my IMEI of the BB
    I think the fifth just works.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Another thing you can do with your cell phone is dial 1-800-PIZZAS1 and a half hour later your doorbell will ring with a dinner delivery.

    I have tried each one and 5 is the only one that works. Would be some cool tricks if they worked for me.

    Correct, #5 has been around for a while and works well. Just don't do 411FREE or you'll get a sex-line... The rest are Snopes material!

    I tried the 112 on the BB 8800 and it really brought up emergency call on the screen good to know. And the keyless remote via cell phone is ingenious.

    I thought I had heard that GSM carriers in the US won't do this... If you're on BES your BES admin can issue a device kill remotely.
