(UPDATED) Some “must know” facts about our mobile phones

From the Amul-amul Bukidnon e-group:
(IMPORTANT NOTE FROM ISTAMBAY SA MINDANAO: Some of the “facts”presented here may not be actually FACTUAL AND SCIENTIFIC. Please read at  your own risk. I posted this for you to see if it works with your units, and  primarily because of the emergency stuff included here. I don’t have a claim to the truthfulness of this post.)

Dear All,
Few more Mobile phone facts:-

1) Emergency number – The Emergency Number worldwide for
Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of 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 while the keypad is locked. Try it out.

2) Locked the keys in the car? Your car has remote keys? – 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 home, call someone on your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the other person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the 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 cell phone!”

3) Hidden
Battery power – Imagine your cell battery is very low, u r expecting an important call and u don’t have a charger. Nokia instrument comes with a reserve battery.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 gets charged when u charge your cell next time.

Caution : Always use left ear while using cell (mobile), because if you use the right one it will affect brain directly. This is a true fact from Apollo medical team. Please forward to all your well wishers.

USEFUL INFO: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits onyour phone: * # 0 6 # A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to yourhandset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. (Pls do it right now.)

Should your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and givethem this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if thethief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.

You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that Whoeverstole it can’t use/sell it either and can use it as PAPER WEIGHT.

If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing Mobile phones.

Please spread this useful information around.

    Hi Andy,
    Thanks for the information.
    By the way, I shared this information without telling the world its gospel truth. When I got the info, honestly I did try some of the points there but not all. Some worked, some didn’t.
    Verifying could be personal, perhaps like what you have done with the point you raised.
    Pero, sincerely thank you for raising this point. When I checked the entry again, I realized I just attributed it to the website without saying I believe all of it.
    Now I will be more choosy of topics. Maybe, I’ll think about taking this off. Salamat!

    *3370# is NOT a setting for accessing an extra battery. there is no ’emergency’ battery. *3370# is a toggle to switch between EFR/FR/HR. EFR makes better quality voice calls but consumes more battery power. HR is opposite.
