I know the cell phone one works.. here are some other cool things you can do with a cell phone:

Taken from an email someone sent me:

Tennis ball and cell phone is bogus. Bump keys are older than world.

I'm curious as to how far the cell phone one works but I think the tennis ball one can be done.

the tennis ball idea seems to work similar to a bump key. It pushes compressed air to push the bearings up...(just my thought not proven)

Because they are nonsense.

Here's a picture of actuators:

http://www.a1electric.com/actuators.htm

The explanation (well, the ONLY explanation how it MIGHT work) here is that the rubber boot is hermetized on both ends, and as you inflate air into it it will expand and push the actuator arm out and push the pin out. Fist of all, it's not hermetized. Air will easily escape in various places BEFORE it even makes it to the boot. Second, the actuator has a reducer inside because it requires to exert a great force on the pin, so it will not easily move fast (inertia of motor's rotor). Air pressure created by a volume of a tennis ball within the actuator that has nearly the same volume won't exceed 2 atmospheres (and that is given there are no leaks). Considering the resistance of motor (because extending arm will cause the motor's rotor rotate), gears of the reduces, 2 atm is not enough to move anything. There has been speculation it works in older cars because they had airtight locks. Bullshit. Air escapes around the pin.

With cellphone, it's just total nonse. It's like claiming I can flush my toilet over a pager.

Bump keys work because pins are geting stuck on the edge of the cylinder on their way down after the key launches them upwards.

The tennis ball myth is based on air pushing the pin out by creating positive pressure inside the door (which has 100 times the volume of the tennis ball).

Who ever wrote this obviously doesn't know how a wireless provider works when it comes to lost/stolen phones. There is quite a bit more going on behind the scences then this simple statement.

The code *#06# is correct to show a 15 digit number in your phone. This is called the IMEI, and if you have activated your device with your provider they will already have it in their system. However, with GSM devices it is not neccessary to have your IMEI updated to use your phone. You just might not have access to data services. The only way your provider won't have your IMEI in thier system is if you put your SIM card into another phone, and do not call them to have it updated. It is possible to have an IMEI manually added to what is called a "Deny list", but generally if you have a contracted phone the representitive will add a feature to your account that will block incoming/outgoing calls and disable your SIM.

If you have a prepaid service and loose your phone, there is really no protection because the agent removes your balance, unless of course they call to have it manually added, but this is not common practise, nor is the agent expected to do this. This would be going above and beyond what they are expected to do. All the agent is expected to do is remove your balance, and note your account with your balance so it can be returned when you call back. If you have recurring payments set up on a prepaid phone then chances are that you will need to speak to another department (usually called "Payment center") to cancel you payments. Keep in mind with prepaid phones, you will loose your number if you do not call back and activate another device. The time will vary depending on the market you are in, but is either 60 or 90 days. Then you would need to purchase a new SIM and activate a new number.

If you put your SIM card into a new phone, the smart thing would be to call and have the IMEI updated so that you can use all the features of your phone. Its not only usefull for that, but if someone has stolen your phone, and tries to add the IMEI to their account it will show up as that IMEI being previously assigned to another account which can only mean two things. Either the phone was stolen, or someone sold their phone to someone else.

Keep in mind that the SIM is the brain of your phone that stores all your billing information so when it comes to unauthorized charges, so disabling your SIM should be main priority. They can be replaced for $25.00 USD + applicable taxes. This is how it works with Cingular Wireless, or the new at&t, so it is probably very similar with other providers as well.

Cheers! Very happy
