Did you know that you could Unlock Android Features with Hidden Codes? These codes can help you unlock and access features that you did not know about. Some codes are specific to certain models, but other, more generic codes can be accessed on nearly any Android device.
The Hidden codes are basically part of the Man-Machine Interface (MMI) schema. These are a bit different from the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) codes, although both of them start with an asterisk (*) followed by digits that comprise commands or data.
According to XDA’s guide. Groups of digits may be separated by additional asterisks. The message is terminated with a hash symbol (#), but custom MMI codes may end with an asterisk as well.
Unlock Android Features with Hidden Codes
These codes usually begin with “*#” and are used on mobile phones to access interesting hidden apps and settings. For example, if you wanted to find your device’s IMEI number then you just have to dial *#06# to find the number, which should just appear on your screen.
And then there is a code you can use to reveal your Google Play Services info or Firebase Cloud Messaging diagnostics. Diagnostics lets you peer into the functionality of the apps to make sure they are running smoothly. For this type #*#426#*# into your dial pad to access this feature.
If you’re unsure if your Wi-Fi or your phone is causing it to lag, you can check how your Wi-Fi is performing. Input #*#232339#*# to perform a Wi-Fi test on your Android device.
You can reset or reboot your phone to clear out the data. Especially if you’re thinking of selling your phone. To restore your device to factory settings, use the code *2767*3855#.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to turn off your device but your phone’s touchscreen starts acting weird, or perhaps your power-off button gets jammed, there’s a code for that, too. Simply type *#*#7594#*#* into your dial pad to power your device off.
