It is respectable to be blind, treat others the way you would want to be

Four 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...


FOURTH,  (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) FREE411   or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at all.
Program this into your cell phone now.


A veteran is someone who, at one point in his or her Life, wrote a blank
check Made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to
and including his or her Life."  If you don't stand behind our "Military
personnel" then feel free to stand in front of them!
