Mobile Phone Tips


Things You Never Knew Your Cellphone Could Do

When it comes to mobile phones I have a mental block. I'm absolutely useless. I have owned one for six years and have never yet managed to send a text without help.

It's pay as you go. I don't know the number and never have it switched on so if someone does try to contact me I always miss the call.

Partly this is due to the fact that whilst suffering from mercury toxicity all phones and computers made me feel decidedly ill.

The 'phone was bought purely for emergencies and thankfully I haven't had many so I still retain most of my original funds. My son finds this incredulous and thinks I'm "sad".

I can't help it though - mobile phones and me just don't mix although I realise they are very useful. I hadn't quite realised to what extent though until I received this
 
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 - Subject: Emergency

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.

SECOND - Subject: 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 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).

THIRD - Subject: Hidden battery power

Imagine your cell battery is very low, you are expecting an important call and you 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 get charged when you charge your cell next
time.

FOURTH - Subject: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's 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 somewhere safe. 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.

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.
 
Makes me wish I wasn't such a technophobe (or should that be telephobe)?


 Have you heard about the ICE your phone campaign?


Apparently, it was the idea of a paramedic, and like most great ideas it's incredibly simple.


ICE in this case stands for In Case Of Emergency.


Paramedics often find themselves in a situation where someone has been taken ill. or been in a bad accident, and they need to contact friends or family of the patient.


Most people carry their mobile phone with them, even if, like me, they don't use it, but the problem the paramedics face is who to contact from the list of names in the address folder.


Obviously it would be really beneficial if they knew which number to call in case of an emergency.


Hence the 'ICE' (In Case of  Emergency) Campaign.


The concept of 'ICE' is catching on quickly, and is becoming nationally recognised as identifying the best person to call "in case of emergency".


All you need to do is store the number of a contact person (or persons) who should be contacted during an emergency under the name 'ICE',  so Emergency  Service personnel and hospital staff would know where to phone.


For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2

and ICE3 etc.


What a great idea, isn't it?


So, if you haven't already done it, please ICE your phone and then tell as many people as you can about the concept.


ICE could speak for you if you're not able to.


 It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest, so start ice(ing) now!
