Cool Things You Can Do on Your Mobile Phone

Here are some quick tips and cool things you can do on your mobile phone.  Thanks to Paul Moffatt at DCTel in British Columbia for passing this tips around.

Emergency calling on any network

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, this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.

How to disable your Mobile phone, if it goes missing.

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, call your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset. This will completely stop anyone using your cellphone even with a different SIM card. 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 did this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

Free directory search – using a phone number

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) CALL-411 or (800) 225-5411

Free directory search – using texting

If you need to find an address or phone number of a business just text 46645 (GOOGL). Then put in the criteria you are looking for (Name of Business) (Town). The more details you enter, the more accurate it will be.
