5 Things Your Cell Phone Can Do

5 Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone Could Do

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.

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).

Editor's Note
It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked
Our car over a cell phone!'

THIRD Hidden Battery Power

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.

When 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....

FIFTH Free Directory Service for Cells

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. This is sponsored by McDonalds.

Editors note: I have not tried any of these yet. If you try them and they do not work let me know

Where Are the Worst Drivers?

According to a Yahoo! Autos article, the worst drivers live in New York! The bottom five including New York: New Jersey, Hawaii, California and Georgia.

GMAC Insurance released the results of its National Drivers Test for 2009. The test, which was given to more than 5,000 people, covers basic knowledge of driving laws. The results were not too good - in a press release from GMAC, "results from the 2009 GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test... found that 20.1 percent of licensed drivers - amounting to roughly 41 million drivers on the road - would not pass a written drivers test exam it taken today."

Another interesting find from the test showed that the older the driver the better the test score. Drivers who were over 35 years of age were more likely to pass than those under 35. Try it yourself, go to the National Drivers Test and see what score you get. When your finished, GMAC has a few video games you can play.
