YOUR CELL PHONE CAN ACTUALLY SAVE YOU MONEY AND EVEN SAVE YOUR LIFE IN AN EMERGENCY.  CHECK THIS OUT...

 

THE EMERGENCY NUMBER WORLDWIDE FOR MOBILE IS 112.  IF YOU FIND YOURSELF OUT OF THE COVERAGE AREA OF YOUR CELL PHONE AND THERE IS AN EMERGENCY, DIAL 112 AND YOUR PHONE WILL SEARCH ANY EXISTING NETWORK TO ESTABLISH THE EMERGENCY NUMBER FOR YOU.  THIS NUMBER CAN EVEN BE DIALED WHEN YOUR KEYPAD IS LOCKED.  TRY IT OUT.

HAVE YOU LOCKED YOUR KEYS IN YOUR CAR?  IF YOU HAVE REMOTE ACCESS, CALL SOMEONE AT HOME FROM YOUR CELL PHONE.  HOLD YOUR CELL PHONE ABOUT ONE FOOT FROM YOUR CAR DOOR AND HAVE THE PERSON AT HOME PRESS THE UNLOCK BUTTON WHILE HOLDING IT NEAR THE MOBILE PHONE ON THEIR END.  YOUR CAR WILL UNLOCK. 

 HIDDEN BATTERY POWER:  IF YOUR CELL BATTERY IS VERY LOW, PRESS *3370# AND YOUR CELL WILL RESTART WITH THIS RESERVE AND SHOW A 50% INCREASE IN BATTERY.  THIS RESERVE WILL GET CHARGED WHEN YOU CHARGE YOUR CELL THE NEXT TIME.

DISABLE A STOLEN CELL PHONE:  TO CHECK YOU CELL PHONE'S SERIAL NUMBER, KEY IN THE FOLLOWING DIGITS ON YOUR PHONE:  *#06#A15   A NUMBER WILL APPEAR ON YOUR PHONE SCREEN.  IT IS UNIQUE TO YOUR HANDSET.  WRITE IT DOWN AND KEEP IT SOMEWHERE SAFE.  IF YOUR PHONE GETS STOLEN, CALL YOUR PHONE SERVICE PROVIDER AND GIVE THEM THE CODE.  THEY WILL ABE ABLE TO BLOCK YOUR PHONE EVEN IF THE THIEF GETS YOUR SIM CARD.

411:  CELL PHONE COMPANIES CHARGE UP TO $1.75 OR MORE FOR INFORMATION CALLS.  WHEN YOU NEED DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE CALL 800-373-3411 INSTEAD OF 411 AND YOU WILL NOT INCUR ANY CHARGES.  PROGRAM THIS NUMBER INTO YOUR CELL PHONE NOW.
