DO WHEN CELL PHONES GET LOST
Here is something worth
knowing if you have a mobile phone . ...Have you
ever wondered why phone companies don't seem interested in trying to
prevent the theft of mobile phones?
If you have ever lost, or had one stolen, and if you are on a plan, you
still have to pay the plan approximately up to 24 months, and you have
to buy another handset and enter into another contract. This is more
revenue for the phone company.
There is a simple way of making lost or stolen mobiles useless to
thieves and the phone companies know about it, but keep it quiet.
To check your mobile phone's serial number, key in the following on your
phone: star-hash-zero-six-hash (* # 0 6 #) and a fifteen digit code will
appear on the screen. This is unique to your handset. Write it down and
keep it safe. Should your mobile 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 did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones.
You may want to send this to as many people with mobiles as possible.
No charge for directory assistance. Phone companies are charging us
$1.00 or more for 411 - information calls when they don't have to. When
you need to use the 411/information option, simply dial 1-800-FREE-411
or 1-800-373-3411 without incurring a charge.
This is information people don't mind receiving - Pass it on. Works on
home phones and cell phones.
