Stumbled upon this today, thought I'd share....
The worldwide emergency number is 112. If you dial it, the phone will search for any network connection to make the call. It can even be dialed if the
keypad is locked!
2) Unlock your car (if another remote is with another)
On many RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) cars, you can hold your cell about a foot from your car door, after calling someone who has a remote (like your
spouse). If the call is open, and the spouse hits the unlock into their phone, should unlock your door.
EDIT: This one appears to be false.
3) Hidden battery power
Press the keys #4720# (on some brands of phone) and you'll access a small reserve of power on the phone, showing an increase in the battery (but at
the expense of sound quality). The reserve will charge when you normally charge the phone.
4) Disable a stolen phone
Press #06# and this will generate a 15 digit code. Keep this handy, so if your phone is stolen, you can call your phone provider, give them the
number, and it will prevent anyone from using the phone (even if they change the SIM card).
5) Free 411.
You can call (800) FREE 411 instead of paying for the directory assistance fee.
EDIT: Updated these with some additional info.
