POPPA  HOWARD  REVEALS  SOME  LITTLE KNOWN  RED – HOT TIPS  FOR CELL PHONE USERS

 Saved as:  “ Website Cell Phone Tips.doc”

 

1:   LOCKED YOUR KEYS AND REMOTE IN THE CAR OR YOUR REMOTE BATTERY IS ’FLAT’ ?

Conventional Solution: You ‘phone a Locksmith or call your Wife on your Cell Phone and ask her to bring you the spare Remote.  Either way, this will cost you maybe hours of wasted time and expense!!

IMMEDIATE  Red Hot Solution::   Point  your Cell Phone at the Car Door handle and get your wife to press the spare Remote holding it near to her Cell Phone.(If you listen carefully you will hear the Door Handle say ”Hi Wifee, your old man is so stooopid isn’t  he?, , , But I suppose I will have to let him in”).

Incidentally, this still works even if you are hundreds of miles away from home!!.

ccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

 

2: DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GET A CELL PHONE DISABLED IF STOLEN ?

If you could do this so that it would be completely useless EVEN IF THE SIM CARD WERETO BE CHNGED,  wouldn’t it be wonderful.?  It would stamp out Cell Phone theft completely as there would be absolutely  no point in such theft, not so ???

Red Hot Solution:    There is, however a successful solution, and that is to Key in the following:-  “ *#06#”

A 15-digit number will then be displayed. This is the Manufacturer’s Registration Number for that particular Phone. Keep it on you at all times and when given to your Service Provider the phone can then be disabled remotely for any further use.

IF EVERYBODY DID THIS, THERE WOULD BE NO POINT AT ALL IN STEALING CELL PHONES, , , SO PLEASE SPREAD THIS INFORMATION AROUND AS YOUR SHARE IN HELPINGTO STAMP OUT CRIME!!!. 

ccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

 

3: RUN OUT OF BATTERY JUICE AND YOU DON’T HAVE A CHARGER HANDY Dos this sound familiar?!!

Red Hot Solution :  All NOKIA Cell Phones come with a hidden Reserve Emergency Power Supply. To activate this, key in  “ *3370# “ and the instrument will restart from this emergency  supply. It will get recharged when you charge in the normal way next time.  (Neat!!, , , Hey What?!).

Post Script: If you are not a NOKIA Cell Phone user, it might pay you to enquire

from “The’ Powers that be” if their Cell Phones have this feature (In our High-Tech’ World of today, I can’t see NOKIA being the ONLY one with this feature).

 

4: THE  MAGIG  112  NUMBER

Did you know that “112” is a World Wide Emergency Number and an Emergency Service can be contacted by keying in “112” , , ,  EVEN WHEN YOUR KEY-PAD IS LOCKED??!!    If you do this, nothing seems to happen and you think that you are perhaps wasting your time, then suddenly the screen lights up and the complete number is displayed, If you now press your green ‘Connect’ Button “Searching for Emergency” is displayed, then shortly after this, contact is made.

 

5: YOU ARE OUTSIDE YOUR  ‘COVERAGE AREA’ AND YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY

Red Hot Solution: Never fear, , “112” is near!!! Simply dial the World Wide Emergency Number for Cell Phones as stated above AND YOUR LOCATION WILL BE SEACHED  FOR ANY nearby  Network on which you can “Piggy-Back”.!!!

cccccccccccccccccccccccccccc


6:  DANGER FROM  EXPLODING CELL PHONES!!            

         You can view pictures on the Internet where Cell Phones have actually  exploded and caused severe facial injury and even death !!!

CAUSES   In all cases it was established that the Cell Phones were in use during the act of being charged  It was also established that “PIRATE” replacement Batteries had been installed.

MORAL: NEVER,  NEVER, EVER be temped to buy cheap “Pirate” Batteries from “Flea Markets”‘ etc: ( they might even have their origin as “Factory Rejects”!!) .

As for using the Phone whilst it is charging, this may have only been incidental in the cases on the Internet,  but rather ‘Play  it Safe’ and remove the Electrical Lead before holding the Phone to your ear and mouth.

cccccccccccccccccccccccccc

 

6: AN URGENT WARNING FROM  VODACOM AND MTM.

If you receive a phone call on your Mobilefrom any person, saying that, he or she is a company engineer, or saying that they’re checking your mobile line, and you have to press # 90 or #09 or any other number. ,, ,  ,End the call immediately without pressing any numbers whatsoever.

This is a fraud whereby if you press the number stated your ‘SIM’ card can be accessed and calls  made at  your expense.

ALSO,, , ,  EVEN FAR WORSE, , , if you receive a phone call and  XALAN  is displayed  don’t answer the call, END THE CALL IMMEDIATELY.  , If you answer the call, your phone will be infected by a virus that will erase all information from both your SIM Card and your phone’s hardware.  This will then make your phone completely inoperative  AND YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY A NEW PHONE !!!

The foregoing information has been confirmed by both Motorola and Nokia.  .

Forward this message to as many acquaintances as you can..
