    Default [Phone app] Special codes

    I'm starting this thread to summarize and document all special codes that can be entered on the phone keypad. All the codes listed here are taken directly from CommCenter.

    There are many places on the web referencing these codes, however, to my knowledge nobody tried to find out and document their corresponding mnemonics, i.e. letters "LANG" instead of numbers "5264".

    If the code contains letters, it means press the corresponding number once for each letter.

    ________________________________________________

    *#06#                         - everyone knows that it displays IMEI, but it's here for completeness
    *3001#12345#*[call]         - start Field Test app (network monitor)
    *#30X#[call], where X=1..9 - generate fake incoming call; the phone will become kind of messed up, thinking that it's on a call until you restart. Can be used to stream music to Bluetooth headset.

    Most of the following codes support 3 prefixes:
    *#       - inquiry, check status
    * or ** - set value
    ##       - cancel or reset to default

    *#5005*VM#[call]               - check voicemail number
     *5005*VM*<voicemail>#[call] - set voicemail number
    **5005*VM*<voicemail>#[call] - set voicemail number
    ##5005*VM#[call]               - clear VM number

    *#5005*SMSC#[call]              - check SMS Center number (stored on SIM card)
     *5005*SMSC*<smscenter>#[call]- set SMSC number
    **5005*SMSC*<smscenter>#[call]- set SMSC number
    ##5005*SMSC#[call]              - clear SMSC no.

    *#5005*LANG#[call]             - check language (not related to the interface language)
     *5005*LANG#[call]             - set language (a prompt pops up asking for ISO 639-1 language code)
    **5005*LANG#[call]             - set language (a prompt pops up asking for ISO 639-1 language code)
    ##5005*LANG#[call]             - reset language to English

     *5005*CB#[call]              - enable GSM cell broadcast messages
     #5005*CB#[call]              - disable GSM cell broadcast messages

     *5005*2267#[call]         - ???
     #5005*2267#[call]         - ???

    *#5005*PHONE#[call]               - display own number (if stored on SIM)
     *5005*PHONE*<???>*<???>#[call] - should store own number, but doesn't appear to work
    **5005*PHONE*<???>*<???>#[call] - should store own number, but doesn't appear to work
    ##5005*PHONE#[call]               - should erase own number, but doesn't appear to work

    *#5005*4433#[call]   - nothing happens
     *5005*4433#[call]   - spinning wheel for about a second ???
     #5005*4433#          - spinning wheel for about a second ???

    *#5005*ART#[call]    - "Artemis?"
     *5005*ART#[call]    - "Artemis?"
     #5005*ART#[call]    - "Artemis?"
    *#5005*ART255#[call] - "Artemis?"
     *5005*ART255#[call] - "Artemis?"
     #5005*ART255#[call] - "Artemis?"

    Added a code to enable cell broadcast messages - *5005*CB#[call]
    Many carriers broadcast some kind of location information whenever the phone switches to another base station.
    Whenever your phone receives broadcast message, it pops up on the screen and also appears in the SMS app.
    It's probably best to disable this feature when you don't need it, because the backlight turns on when a new message arrives.

    Default How do you enter alpha characters?

    I'm not able to enter any alpha characters on the keypad. What am I missing?

    Also, for the voicemail code, is it always three #'s or can it be the whole seven digit voicemail #?

    Thanks

    The letters are below the numbers (remember how you used to type a text message on your previous phones?) So *#5005*VM# means *#5005*86#.
