13 Secret Codes That Will Unlock Hidden Features on Your Android Phone
12) General Test Mode: *#0*#
This one only works on Android devices. The code takes you to a screen where you can access a bunch of different phone operations, including front cam, vibration, sleep, sub key, and more. Once there, you can find out more about your phones operation with a simple click. It’s a really neat feature that really lets you explore a lot of features on your Android device that you normally wouldn’t have known.
11) Display your IMEI: *#06#
This one works with most phone and carriers. It doesn’t; however, work if you have the Verizon & iPhone combination. When you input the secret code, your International Mobile Station Equipment Identity number will appear. This number is unique to your phone and can be used for several things, including customer support. This number is essentially like an IP address for your phone. Phone providers can use this number to globally block a phone from being used on any of their networks. This is typically done when somebody complains that their phone has been stolen. This will make the phone un-usable on any networks that use this blacklist. This is typically something all major providers adhere to.
