> 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

> dialed
> even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.
> SECOND Subject: Have you ever 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 (on your 'other'

> Program this into your cell phone now.
> This is the kind of information people don't mind receiving, so  
> pass it on to your family and friends.
