									                       NOKIA PHONE SECRETS


First things first, Nokia is a worldwide Corporation which owns 36% of the market share.
So no doubt alot of you own a Nokia mobile, whether it be CDMA or GSM.

CDMA : Is a phone which does not need a sim card to run, it just stores everything on the
phone.
GSM : Is a phone which has a SIM card (like Vodafone)

There are several codes that you can use on Nokia's, i will run through these in this
article.
(Stand-by mode is the main/home screen which displays your battery charge and signal)

(NOTE: The Service Programming Menu only works on CDMA phones)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Service Programming Menu - *3001#12345#

This menu is the mother of all Nokia codes, you can edit your phone like mad here, most
of these menus your service provider probably doesn't want you to have the ablity to do.
So here we go.

On stand-by mode, type in *3001#12345# and wait a few seconds for it to load up. Once
the screen comes up you will have several options, all with different functions. (NOTE:
this menu differs on different phones.)

1. NAM 1
2. Change SPC
3. Security
4. Server addr.
5. SW version
6. Serial number
7. Programmed
8. Field test

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. NAM 1 (* means explained below)

This is the most useful menu your phone has, it allows you to edit the heck out of your
phone! inside NAM 1 there are these different menus:

Own number*
Mobile ID number
A-key code
Alpha tag*
Emergency*
Service No.
CDMA settings
NAM status

Own number:
Self explanitory, but if you want a new number then this is where you want to go. Just
enter this menu followed by the SPC (see Change SPC) then change your number. This
DOES work, but the new phone number you want must not already be in use.

Alpha tag:
You know on the standby screen, theres the "Vodafone" or "Telecom" or "T-Mobile" that
appears? well now you can get rid of that annoying tag. Change this to whatever you
please, just to make your phone more personalised.

Emergency:
This menu is basically a menu which displays all the numbers that will divert to the
emergency number of your area. For example, if you live in USA and your emergency
number is 911, in this menu there will be "911","811", "991" and the obvious numbers
that you may type in while trying to reach 911. It's smart not to mess with these, because
you never know when you'll be in an emergency. There should be some free slots so why
not add in a couple more numbers that you want to divert to your emergency?
Some people think "Wow! emergency number! that calls for free, so maybe if i put in my
friends number then it will give me free calls to him/her!" WRONG. This menu can NOT
give you free calls. If you were to put in your friends number, then whever you called
them you would end up calling the emergency line - as that's what you're diverted to!
REMEMBER THIS!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Change SPC

The SPC is the Service Programming Code. This code is rather hard to come across, as
the service providers try to hide it from the public so they can't access these places on
their phones. But luckily enough if you live in New Zealand then here is the code :)

147359 - Is the default code that will let you into 'almost' anything
665205 - Is the 'master' code, that will let you into anything you like

So, this menu just means you can change the code. NOTE: some places when you buy the
phone tend to access this menu and change it so that the owner can't access it :( that is not
always the case though!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Security

This menu just shows you the security code that is installed on your phone, couldn't be
more bland.
FUN TRICK: why not have a look at your friend/work mates' phone and access this
menu, you could then see their security code or change it just for fun :) But we're nice
people and that's naughty, so we arn't going to do that are we..

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Server addr.

This is the server address of your service provider. Nothing you can do here.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. SW version

Once again, another menu with not alot of meaning. All you can do in here is check out
when your phone was activated, and what version software it is running. This can also be
accessed on GSM phones (see below)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. Serial number

This is your serial number. DUH.
It would be a wise idea to jot this down somewhere safe, because this could be useful. If
your phone was ever lost or stolen then you could contact your service provider and give
them this code. This would let them shut the phone down so that your robber couldn't use
your phone - or access anything on it for that matter.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. Programmed

This is just a menu that you can only access once, which lets you type in when your
phone was programmed.

Seem like the menus are getting lamer? Wait for the next one..


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Field Test

This is an option which is quite cool really. Go into Field test and change "Disabled" to
"Enabled". Then get out of the whole service programming menu.
Now, turn your phone off, and back on again.
Once it loads up go to your normal menu and scroll to the bottom. Notice you have just
added a new menu to your phone? It is called Net Monitor.
Net Monitor speaks for itself, with this option you can monitor your network to a small
extent.
Enter Net Monitor and it will prompt you with "Group/display:" enter in 3101 and press
OK.
It should take you back to your standbuy screen, nothing will have changed. But wait a
few seconds and then all these numbers will appear on your screen. What do they mean?

There is only one number you can really understand in this menu. This number is located
as the third number down, it will say something like "-50" (the 50 can range anywhere
from 10 to 99). This is how strong the signal is.

For example : If your phone displayed -10 here then it's telling you that your neighbour is
a cell site and your signal is really really good.

If your phone displayed -90 then it's basically telling you that where you live or where
you are at that certain time has really bad signal.

You will notice that as you get closer/further away to a cell site this number will grow or
decrease.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That sums up the Service Programming Menu, and the extra things your service provider
doesn't want you doing :}

There are many other codes that you can use on CDMA phones, just search around for
them.

Extra Codes:

*#66767# - This code when spelt out is "NO-SMS" so shouldn't that mean no texting?
well, yes. If you enter this code in on your phone then you will no longer have the ability
to "Create Message" or "Reply". If you're really mean then enter it on your brother or
sisters phone, that's sure to give you some laughs. You can bring them back again by re-
entering the code.
*#639# - This brings you to the menu which just re-programs your phone faster. I
wouldn't reccomend you doing this if you value your phone.

*#7780# - This takes you to a menu which says "Restore Factory Settings", i think you
understand what will happen if you press yes :p

GSM Code:

This is the only GSM code i know from the top of my head, just search around for more
as i'm sure they're out there.

*#0000# - This is probably the most useless code you can find, but anyway it just gives
you information on when your phone was activated. If your phone was sent in for repair,
then this date will have changed to the date when it was fixed.
