The emergency number worldide for cell phones is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and your cell will search for any existing network to establish a connection for the call. interestingly you can dial this number even when the key pad is locked.
2. locked car keys
Have you ever loced your keys in the car? if you have a remote keyless entry this will come in handy someday. if you lock your keys in the car and the spare remote is at home, call someone at home on there cell phone. hold your cell phone about a foot from your door and have the other person at home press the unlock button holding it near there cell phone and your car door will unlock. distance is no object, and it really works, beats breaking a window or calling a lock smith.
