List of Hidden Secret Service Codes for Chinese Mobile Phones


Hidden Secret Service Menu Codes for Sony, Samsung, LG and Philips TV
Now its turn of Google Android mobile phones.
Recently I got a Google Android mobile phone "Samsung Galaxy I7500". While I'm loving
playing with it, I also found some interesting secret codes which can enable/disable lots of hidden
settings in the mobile phone. These codes can also show many useful information about the
phone.
So in this topic, you'll get several hidden secret codes which can be used in any Google Android
mobile phone to access things which are not accessible by default.
FYI These codes have been obtained by decoding various .apk files present in the phone firmware.

Google Android Hidden Secret Codes

*#*#7780#*#*

This code can be used for a factory data reset. It'll remove following things:
Google account settings stored in your phone
System and application data and settings
Downloaded applications
It'll NOT remove:
Current system software and bundled applications
SD card files e.g. photos, music files, etc.
PS: Once you give this code, you get a prompt screen asking you to click on "Reset phone"
button. So you get a chance to cancel your operation.

*2767*3855#

Think before you give this code. This code is used for factory format. It'll remove all files and
settings including the internal memory storage. It'll also reinstall the phone firmware.
PS: Once you give this code, there is no way to cancel the operation unless you remove the
battery from the phone. So think twice before giving this code.

*#*#34971539#*#*

This code is used to get information about phone camera. It shows following 4 menus:
Update camera firmware in image Don't try this option
Update camera firmware in SD card
Get camera firmware version
Get firmware update count
WARNING: Never use the first option otherwise your phone camera will stop working and you'll
need to take your phone to service center to reinstall camera firmware.

This one is my favorite one. This code can be used to change the "End Call / Power" button
action in your phone. Be default, if you long press the button, it shows a screen asking you to
select any option from Silent mode, Airplane mode and Power off.
You can change this action using this code. You can enable direct power off on this button so you
don't need to waste your time in selecting the option.

This code opens a File copy screen where you can backup your media files e.g. Images, Sound,
Video and Voice memo.
