4 THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO
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 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. 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 mobile phone!'

THIRD 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.

FOURTH How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phon! e: * # 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.
This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends

Yes, Tip #4 works, and it's quite interesting to see that, although it's unnecessary as Vodafone can already get this information remotely.

Tip #1 is correct too regarding 112 being the Emergency Number worldwide.

Tip #2 is complete BOLLOCKS because your Car Remote does not use audible signals so there is no way that can possibly work.

I just tried Tip #3 regarding the battery boost and it does absolutely nothing on my phone. I have never heard of this working with any other phone either, and I would be extremely sceptical of such claims. Much like Tip #2, this is just an urban legend I would say.

Vodafone may disable your phone if it gets stolen, but you need to have the recipt and box it came in. My dad won a phone at the Roofing Association conference and gave it to me, only to be stolen 3 months later on site. Went to Vodafone and was told they couldn't disable it because I didn't have the recipt, even though I still had the box with codes on it and I told them it was a prize. So maybe it would be a good idea to write down if you dont have the recipt.
