I.C.E. In Case of Emergency

*~ Asalam'alaykum wr wb ~*

Here are some things your cell phones can do if you find yourself in some hot water...


1. 112 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.

2. Locked Keys

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. Dead Battery

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.

4. Stolen Cell

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.

haha and some of my own bit of wisdom... :p

5. Nasty guy/girl tryna' pick you up...

For those times you need to escape number giving make sure to know your local "rejection number." Its an easy way to get rid of unwanted suitors, to express a lack of interest in a non-confrontational manner, and to gracefully escape an uncomfortable situation.

If you're in the U.S. go to for your city's local number
and if in the U.K., the official reject number is 09061 100 596

almira: lol yup good girl!

b'hood: it is? well for us American's its free :p the rejection line is hilarious & u'll luv it i bet. Its this number w/ ur local area code (so ppl dont know ur faking it) and its lierally the rejection line. So when the rejected person dials it, a man on the other line says " you have been rejected..." and then goes on for like another 5 mins making fun of them for being rejected! soooooooo funny ;)

haha hey its a good thing u ain't know wut it is, cuz it means u havent been rejected on the other hand, i do know wut it is cuz, no i didnt get rejected, i called it myself to know wut it was like. {so u better not make anything up foolio!}

z: haha no no its funny.ima make u call it next time :p but moving bak is making me cranky! i can't sleep nowadays! lol

xoxo.wasalaam everyone...
