Useful and Interesting facts about your Mobile !

I lost my cell phone recently. I know who took it but could not claim my phone back as had no proof about the same. Had I got this forwarded message before may be I could have managed to get my phone back.

So am sharing this EXTREMLY useful information about mobiles:

Firstly Would you like to know if your mobile is original or not ?????

Press the following on your mobile *#06# and the-international mobile equipment identity number appears.

Then check the 7th and 8th numbers

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 02 or 20 this means your cell phone was assembled in Emirates which implies a very Bad quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 08 or 80 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Germany which implies it is of fair quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 01 or 10 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Finland which implies your phone quality is very Good

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 00 this means your cell phone was manufactured in original factory which is the best Mobile Quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 13 this means your cell phone was assembled in Azerbaijan which implies again a very Bad quality and which is also dangerous for your health


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:

1). 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 for yourself

2). 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).

Editor's Note: "It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!"

3). 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 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.

4). Most important: 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 note it down and keep it somewhere safe. If your cell phone gets 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.

Hope this information was useful !!
