Not sure if all of this is true but if it is, its good info to have.
 

4 Things you might not have known about your Cell Phone

  

For all the folks with cell phones. (This should be printed and kept in your car, purse, and wallet. Good information to have with you.) 

   

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   (Hidden  Battery  Power)

  

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

  

THIRD   (How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone? )

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following Digits on your phone:  *#06# . 

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 is 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. 

   

  

And Finally....

Well two and three do not work on my phone. 

But I use free411 all the time.  You have to listen to some advertisements, but I always get the number I am after.

There used to be another one of these which said if you locked your keys out of your car you could call someone at home with the spare set and the signal could pass through your phone and unlock the door. 

I never got that one to work either.  That one would be pretty cool though if it did.

I got three to work. Actually came up with two numbers, but I think you can get those under the settings somewhere.

Unfortunately none of that works with a smartphone (if it uses a touchscreen)! But good to know for other phones. I have one of each.

1-800-BING411 has pretty decent voice recognition...also free.
