Stupid Things To Try With Your Phone

Stupid Things To Try With Your Phone

A mobile phone is capable of all kinds of tricks, but you can use your cell for more than just photos, texts, and phone calls. Here are some great ways for messing about with your mobile handset, whether it be using a phone to unlock a car, or entering the mobile phone throwing championships.

Step 1: Open your car

There is some dispute over how and when this works. It certainly depends on you having the right locking system on your car, and even the type of mobile you have, so give it a whirl and see if it works for you

If you somehow lock your cars key fob in the car, phone someone at home who has the spare. Bare in mind it must be a mobile to mobile call. Get them to press the open button whilst pointing the fob down the phone. Meanwhile, hold your phone about a foot from the car. With a bit of luck it will open.

Step 2: Check for a faulty microwave

Put a mobile inside your microwave and give it a ring. The oven is designed to keep microwaves in, so if it rings, you may well be leaking waves all over the place, and should get it checked. There is a small gap for waves to escape, but it should at least dramatically limit the signal.

Step 3: Mobile phone throwing

Start training for the mobile phone throwing world championships in Sweden. This started in 2000, and marks are awarded for distance and creative choreography. 95.53m is the unofficial world record, thrown in England in 2007. The minimum weight is 220 grams, so don't try and throw one lighter than this, as that would just be silly.
