THINGS YOU MUST KNOW YOUR CELLPHONE COULD DO.
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: -
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 if the keypad is locked.
Try it out.
UP to dialing its ok. But nothing happened further.
Meaning : There is no emergency in India.
Confirm with Kasab, if you dont trust any one in India.
Have you locked your keys in the car? Does your car have
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 keysare 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 an 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).It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cellphone! ; unbelievable but true. *

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?To check your Mobile phones 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 somewheresafe. 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 SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.
