Undocumented possibilities of cell phones
Presenting a modern life without a mobile phone is impossible. This attribute not only merged into our life, but became an indispensable element in any situation. But the truth is that most of us do not even guess about the potential capabilities of such native and familiar devices.
Especially for you, I prepared a selection of useful features of your mobile phone, which you could not even guess about.

Each owner of the car at least once in his life got into a situation where the keys remain inside a locked car. Do not panic or, worse, beat the glass.
If at home you have a second set of remote key, take your phone, calmly dial the number of the cellular one of the household and ask to use the key directly from the house, having previously carried it to the mobile phone, and at the same time keep your device at a distance of about 30 cm from the car door.
Thus, your phones will create a kind of portal and serve as a guide for the key. This will help you save time, material costs and in two accounts to open your car. The distance in this case has absolutely no value: whether you are at least a hundred kilometers from home, if you can get through to a person with spare keys, you can open a car or even a trunk!
It's not unfortunate, but every second owner of a mobile phone at least once in his life became a victim of cell phone theft. The situation is very unpleasant and it is often not even the cost of the device, but information.
If you live in a big city, we advise you to take a responsible approach to the safety of your property, and, of course, it does not prevent you from being reinsured once again. If you still lost your phone, it's best to block it immediately. For this you will need a serial number for the cellular.
Dial the following combination of digits * # 06 # on the phone, then the 15-digit code will be displayed on the screen - this is a unique number that is never repeated and assigned by the manufacturer individually to each device. Write it down and keep it in a safe place. If your phone is lost, call your mobile operator and give this code, after which the cell phone can be blocked.
After such a phone it will be impossible to use. Of course, this is not a guarantee that you will be returned, but at least your phone in its original form can not be used by an attacker.
If you are caught in an emergency situation from anywhere in the world, you just need to dial the short number "112" from your mobile and the phone will automatically search for an emergency number within the networks available in the region.
Even being outside the coverage area of the network, having no funds on the account and being in a foreign country, by this number you will necessarily contact the necessary emergency service. Moreover, this number can be dialed without even removing your phone from the lock!
The most urgent issue for all mobile phone owners is the battery charge. Fortunately, there is a lifetime for this problem, but this advice is only for Nokia owners.
The fact is that it is in Nokia phones that there is a hidden battery reserve. To activate it, you must dial a combination of digits * 3370 #, after which the phone will reboot using a backup battery and the battery charge will increase by 50%. The backup battery will in turn be recharged the next time the battery is charged.
