Things You Probably Never Knew Your Mobile Phone Can Do. .. by Stoical: 11:07am On Nov 12, 2016
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. . Your mobile phone canv actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

- Emergency
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, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialled even if the keypad is locked. Try it out...

- 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.
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.

- Hidden Battery Power
Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#
Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.
This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

- ATM - PIN Number Reversal - Good to Know
If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM 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.

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

MODs I hope this is the right section for this information?

If what you have posted about the ATM PIN is correct, why are bank customers not informed about it by the banks?

Re: Things You Probably Never Knew Your Mobile Phone Can Do. .. by HyDef(m): 11:02am On Nov 13, 2016
As you began, I thought I was in for some amazing information...

But I know the one about the ATM Pin to be false... And then without even having to waste my time, I know that battery reserve one is utter crap.

That car door one is also probably 100% bull. No I haven't tested it, but my basic understanding of science says no. Like... Just... No.

Here's one I've personally confirmed... A phone camera will display IR. Point a remote at your camera and you'll see the red light on your screen. cheesy Not of much practical use except finding out if your remote batteries are dead.
