"Four Ways Your Cell Phone Can Help in an Emergency!"
Did you know the many ways that your Mobile Phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out these 4 things that you can do and place a copy in your vehicle.
The worldwide emergency number for mobile devices 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 (Locked Keys in Car)
Have you locked your keys in the car? Does your car have remote key less entry? Then this may come in handy.
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 the keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundred 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 (Hidden Battery Power)
Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#. Your cell phone will restart with this reverve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell phone next time.
FOURTH: (Free Delivery Service for Cells)
Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls. 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
This can be done without occurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
