Some GSM tricks I found on a blog

3 posts in this topic

I found the following information on a myspace blog. I was wondering how much of it is true. The remote car unlocking thing I have never heard of and it sounds like B.S. I know for a fact that IMEI numbers can be changed with hardware so I know that one isn't true. I can't speak on the battery power trick. The 800-FREE-411 sounds useful though. Feel free to share opinions, guys.

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:

FIRST

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

dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

SECOND

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 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!"

THIRD

Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys

*3370#

Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a

50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your

cell next time.

FOURTH

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 # A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This

number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe.

When your phone 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 does this, there would be no point in

people stealing mobile phones.

And Finally....

FIFTH

Free Directory Service for Cells

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) FREE 411, or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at all.

Program this into your cell phone now. This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it

on to your family and friends.

That will actually turn on EFR (Enhanced Full Rate) on (most) Nokia phone.. better sound quality in exchange for REDUCED battery life.

Key in *#3370* to deactivate.

*#4270# Will give you HRC (Half Rate Clarity) which is the exact opposite of EFR, key in *#4270* to deactivate.
