Samsung Secret Codes and Hacks

The Samsung Secret Codes like is one of the longest you will come across and it lets you control nearly every feature of the phone by using the codes to access hidden menu functions and options as well as some standard functions which may be hidden deep in the menu trees. As always the standard *#06# will display the IMEI number.

Unlocking the phone for use with a SIM card from another phone company can be done by entering *#9998*3323# which will reset the phone, you exit and push 7 which completes the reset, you can then put your new SIM card in the phone, when prompted about the SIM lock simply enter 00000000 and then *0141# which will unlock the phone for you. Alternatively you can try *#2767*2878# without a SIM card which is known to work on some models.

As always if you have any other Samsung Secret Codes please send them to me so that I can add them to the above list.
