Hi, This post calls you to comment as many times as possible for something you'd be proud of.Read on..

This blog is still unknown and quite little on the Internet space... yet...before you read ahead - I want U to know that this post is special for me.

For TWO reasons:
1 - Since I'm treating this one as an experiment based on the phrase,"It gives one...more pleasure to GIVE than to get". I'm about to find that out..n' for that I need YOUR HELP.


2 - I'm also treating this post as something to be proud of for I SHALL BE GIVING, in a small way of mine, something back TO MY COUNTRY for all it has given me. Not that I'm counting of course.

Read on..

Well, I've recently been asked to put in something about cell phones. This, I didn't have to think much about. I knew instantly wot I was gonna put in.

"Cell codes" - plain n' simple. The secret cell codes that exist but not many know or use.

We get a new phone, a new washing machine, a new computer, a new this, a new that...we NEVER call those call center guys asking how to work it, do we? Moreover, we never flip through those big help manuals either, do we? Nahhh.

The world at large relies heavily on help manuals, call centers n' outside help. We do not. "We like to do it ourselves baby"...if you know wot I mean. *Wink.

So, though U might get these codes from the net readily available, I'd still like to imagine that U think of ME, smile and come back to 'HELL LOTTA TIPS' when u desire to know one of 'em.

Now coming back to the point I had mentioned at the beginning of this post. This is it...

For EVERY COMMENT on this post...I shall be giving 10 FREE HUGS to anyone who wud like to be hugged on the street.(I'll make sure I have put on lotsa deo on meself n' look presentable enuff , no worries there.)


For EVERY COMMENT I get for this post beginning today till the end of this month, I'll DONATE Rs 50 for education for the needy. As many comments, as much money goes in the donation.

I don't have to convince you of my honesty here. This is my own thing, a small step of mine towards my own resolution and help to my countrymen unconditionally n' giving back how much ever I can for what my country has given me. This is just the beginning.

So please comment for this post, more than once if u so desire. The more you comment, the more you help. The post goes online on the 9th of January 2009. This will be ON for the entire month.
Thank you.
Secret Cell Codes - Nokia, Motorola and Sony E codes...
(These codes have been collated from different online sites. U didn't think I'd know all this, did u?)

Main screen - type in:
*#06# for checking the IMEI No.
*#7780# reset to factory settings.
*#67705646# This will clear the LCD display(operator logo).
*#0000# To view software version.
*#2820# Bluetooth device address.
*#746025625# Sim clock allowed status.
#pw+1234567890+1# Shows if sim have restrictions.
*#92702689# - takes you to a secret menu where you may find some of the information below:
1. Displays Serial Number.
2. Displays the Month and Year of Manufacture
3. Displays (if there) the date where the phone was purchased (MMYY)
4. Displays the date of the last repair - if found (0000)
5. Shows life timer of phone (time passes since last start)
*#3370# - Enhanced Full Rate Codec (EFR) activation.
Increase signal strength, better signal reception. It also helps if u wanna use GPRS and the service does not respond or is too slow. Phone battery will drain faster though.
*#3370* - (EFR) deactivation. Phone will automatically restart. Increases battery life by 30% since ur phone receives less signal from the network.
*#4720# - Half Rate Codec activation.
*#4720* - Half Rate Codec deactivation. The phone will automatically restart.If you forgot wallet code for Nokia S60 phone, use this code reset: *#7370925538#.
Note this - your data in the wallet will be erased. The Phone will ask you the lock code. Default lock code is: 12345. Press *#3925538# to delete the contents and code of wallet.
Unlock service provider: Insert the sim, turn the phone on and press vol up(arrow keys) for 3 seconds, should say pin code. Press C, then press * message should flash, press * again and 04*pin*pin*pin# \*#7328748263373738# resets security code. Default security code is 12345. Change closed caller group (settings >security settings>user groups) to 00000 and ur phone will sound the message tone when you are near a radar speed trap. kool.
Setting it to 500 will cause your phone 2 set off security alarms at shop exits, gr8 for practical jokes! (works with some of the Nokia phones.) Press and hold "0" on the main screen to open wap browser. hehe.

IMEI number: *#06#
Code to lock keys: Press together *7
Note: [] (pause) means the * key held in until box appears.
Select phone line - (use this to write things below the provider name): [] [] [] 0 0 8 [] 1 []

If you change the last number to 0 you can deactive that code. The 3 digit number at the middle are from 0 to 999. The codes u see here r jus the interesting ones.(EFR):Enhanced Full Rate Codec.

Press 1 and ok. Press 186 and ok. You will receive an extra 50 msgs memory space.Switch phone off and back on.(not tested). heheee

To get Sony Ericsson Secret Menu:-> * <- <- * <- *(-> means press joystick, arrow keys or jogdial to the right and <- means left.)You'll see the phone model, software info, IMEI, configuration info, sim lock status, REAL time clock, total call time and text labels.HEll Yeahhh!You can also test your phones services and hardware from this menu (main display, camera, LED/illumination, Flash LED, keyboard, earphone, speaker, microphone, radio and vibrator tests) IMEI Number: *#06#Lockstatus: <- * * <-Shortcut to last dialed numbers: 0#Shortcut to sim numbers: On main menu type a number and press # If you change the language from default to any other language, it may be difficult to switch to default language. The shortcut is very simple. Older Ericssons *#0000# & Newer Ericssons <0000> & Also, pressing <8888> on the newer Ericssons changes the language to Automatic. <> stands for right arrow button or joystick.
Copy & Paste when using phonebook: Go into "Edit contact", and select the Contact Scroll down to the number you want to cut and paste. Without selecting it (i.e without clicking on the joystick or the yes button) press and hold the * key, and press the 1 key. When you release both keys, the highlighted number should disappear.
Now move to the appropriate entry (eg the "Mob" entry) and press and hold the * key, and press the 3 key. When you release both, the number is pasted into this entry. (1 for cut, 2 for copy and 3 for paste.)
If you've cleared your call list you can easily find unsaved dialed no: Go to Message, write New & Press yes. Click on Continue. In the menu to let you key in the number to send msg, press the right up key for more menu & you go to the following list. Phone book, Groups, Sim entries and Unsaved nos.
Select Unsaved nos, you'll be able to see the last 10 unsaved nos.Those numbers can't be erased even you clear your entire call list.
