car, purse, and wallet. Good

information to have with you.)

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:



The Emergency Number wo rldwide 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.


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 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

having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be
