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: -
*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 dialled even if the keypad is locked.
**Try it out.**
*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!"*
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
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.
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.

I hate to be a pedant but shouldn't this be in "Miscellaneous"?

Yes Mark you are absolutely correct on both fronts.
1/ I should have posted it in the "miscellaneous" section and
2/ you are a pedant ;)
Please allow me the opportunity to reply in kind.
1. a person who makes an excessive or inappropriate display of learning.
2. a person who overemphasizes rules or minor details.
3. a person who adheres rigidly to book knowledge without regard to common sense.

Oh the things I'm exposed to at poker. . .
Correct me if I'm wrong, and Mica you can weigh in here at any time, but isn't "didactic" what you are describing?

I went back and read this entire thread to see what got it started. And now, to use an old Monty Python phrase, " MY Brain Hurts".

I thought didactic is what a didac sometimes gets while walking through the woods. I believe a didactic can be removed by lighting a match, blowing it out, and then quickly touching the tic with the hot matchhead. Be careful not to touch the didac as a burned didac can react quite violently. As for a pedant, isn't that the person who married a peduncle? (rim shot)
Don't worry, be happy!

Bill, that is most definitely what I would call, “testing this threads elasticity”.
