Q:

Does dialing *67 work on a cell phone?

A:

The *67 method of blocking one's number from being recognized by a caller ID function does work on cell phones. It functions the same way on a cell phone as it does on a landline phone.

The *67 method of phone number blocking is activated by dialing *67 before dialing a number to be called. For example, to call the number (555) 555-5555 without having the calling number featured on caller ID, the caller would dial *67 (555) 555-5555. However, some secure corporate and government phone numbers cannot be called using the *67 method, and the call will be rejected by these numbers

    How do you activate reserve battery power in a cell phone?

    A:

    Most cell phones do not have battery power in reserve. However, certain brands of cell phone, such as Nokia, have an option to turn on a half rate codec mode on the phone. This reduces the sound quality of the phone but allows it to last an additional 30 percent longer. Users can also extend battery life by turning off Wi-Fi, locking their phone sooner and dimming its screen.

    How do cell phone radiation levels work?

    A:

    Cellphone radiation is a type of non-ionizing radiation, typically thought of as a safe kind of radiation, and a form of electromagnetic radiation that falls somewhere near where microwaves are found on the electromagnetic spectrum. Cellphone radiation is emitted from the phone at varying levels depending on the model, and it is measured at a specific absorption rate, or the rate at which human tissue absorbs the incoming radiation.
