Useful Tips for Emergency


There are a few things that can be done in times of grave  emergencies. Your mobile can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.

Just Check out the things that you can do  with it: 

The  Emergency Number worldwide for all Mobile Phones is 112. If you find yourself out of  the coverage area of your 


mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112  and your mobile will search any existing network in your area to establish the emergency  number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialled even  if the keypad is locked. This works on all phones worldwide and is free. It is the equivalent of 999.


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 mobile phone from your cell phone. 

Remote Keys of Car

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 thousands 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: I didn't believe this when I heard about it! I rang my daughter in Sydney from Perth when we went on holiday.  She had the spare car key.  We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a mobile phone!' 

Hidden Battery Power 

To activate, press the keys *3370# (remember the asterisk).  Do this when the phone is almost dead.  Your mobile will restart in a special way with this new reserve and the instrument will show a 50%  increase in battery life. This reserve will get re charged when you charge your mobile next time.  This secret is in the fine print in most phone manuals.  Most people however skip this information without realising. 


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 #
Ensure you put an asterisk BEFORE the #06# sequence.

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 ever 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 done this, there would be no point in people  stealing mobile phones.  This secret is also in the fine print of most mobile phone manuals.  It was created for the very purpose of trying to prevent phones from being stolen.

ATM   PIN Number Reversal - Good to Know  !! 

If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from anATM  machine, you  can notify the police by entering your PIN # in  reverse. For example, if your  pin number is 1234, then you would put  in 4321. The ATM system recognizes  that your PIN number is backwards  from the ATM card you placed in the  machine. The machine will still  give you the money you requested, but unknown  to the robber, the  police will be immediately dispatched to the location.  All ATM's carry this emergency sequencer by law.


This information was recently broadcast on by Crime Stoppers  however it is seldom used because people just don't know about it. 

Why NOT pass this along to everyone !!

the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it
on to your
family and friends
