Something to learn about your handphone

THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELLPHONE COULD ..
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: - *EMERGENCY*
*I*
*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.**
*II*
*Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you 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!"*
*III*
Subject: 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 a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time. AND
*IV*
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. Please spread this useful information around

TIPS FROM USA POLICE

This is a good reminder for all of us.You can never Read this too many times!

1.Tip from police:The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2.If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you.... chances are that he is more interested in your Wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet or purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3.If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm! out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4.Women have a tendency to get into their car after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their check book, or making a list, etc.) DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.

AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

5.A Few Notes About Getting Into Your Car In a Parking Lot, or Parking Garage:

A.Be aware: look around you; look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat! . (And check out under the car as you approach.)

B.If you're parked next to a big van you should enter your car from the passenger door.Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

C.Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle and the passenger side. If a male is! sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get aguard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6.ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alon! e and the perfect crime spot).

7.If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ, RUN!

8.As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women? He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help" into his vehicle or with his vehicle,! which is when he abducted his next victim.

Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her "Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, "We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door! ." He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby cry recorder and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they heard baby cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night. Please pass this on! and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby.

This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on: America's Most Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana.

Do not lick envelopes!

ENVELOPES
I used to work for an envelope company. Our plant supervisor used to
work in the Chicago plant and told us not to lick the envelopes
because they would often find dead rats at the bottom of the glue
barrel (after thousands of envelopes had been glued and shipped).
I work in a factory and we have 2 employees who used to work in an
envelope factory. They told me that when the machine jams up, they
use whatever water is handy to thin out the glue. This includes water
that they just mopped the floor with. Since then, I've avoided
licking envelopes...
1.) If you lick your envelopes... You won't anymore!!! A woman was
working in a post office in California. One day she licked the
envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very day
the lady cut her tongue on the envelope. A week later, she noticed an
abnormal swelling of her tongue.
She went to the doctor, but they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was
not sore or anything. A couple of days later, her tongue started to
swell more, and it began to get so sore, that she could not eat.
She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done. The
doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared
her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live
cockroach crawled out!!!! There were roach eggs on the seal of the
envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because of
her saliva. It was warm and moist...
This is a true story reported on CNN.
2.) Andy Hume wrote: "Hey, I used to work in an envelope factory. You
wouldn't believe the things that float around in those gum applicator
trays. I haven't licked an envelope for years!"
3.) To All: I used to work for a print shop (32 years ago) and we
were told NEVER to lick the envelopes. I never understood why until I
had to go into storage and pull out 2500 envelops that were already
printed for a customer who was doing a mailing and saw several squads
of roaches roaming around inside a couple of boxes with eggs
everywhere. They eat the glue on the envelopes. I think print shops have
a harder time controlling roaches than a restaurant. I always buy the
self-sealing type. Or if need be, I use a glue stick to seal one that has the type of glue
that needs to be wet to stick.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON, TO YOUR FRIENDS. After reading this you will
never lick another envelope or stamp ever again.

Have a nice day & keep your tongues where they belong!

Car Jacking Tactic! (Malaysia)

Dear Friend ,
Please read below message ,
This actually happened to a man, not a woman recently in KL Imagine: You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. Then you lock all your doors, start the engine and shift into REVERSE, and you look into the rear-view mirror to back out of your parking space and you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into PARK, unlock your doors and jump out off your car to remove that paper or whatever it is that is obstructing your view. When you reach the back of your car, that is when the car-jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off !!
Your engine was running, you would have your purse in the car and they practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.
BE AWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.
Just drive away and remove the paper that is stuck to your window LATER, and be thankful that you read this email. I hope you will forward this to friends and family especially to women! A purse contains all identification, and you certainly do NOT want someone getting your home address. They already HAVE your keys!!!!!
