NOKIA SECRETS / HACKS
I ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILTY FOR ANYTHINGTHAT HAPPENS ON YOUR PHONE ! - YOU
TRY THESE CODES OUT AT YOUR OWN RISK !
• IMEI Number *#06#
• For checking the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity).
• Information you get from the IMEI-
XXXXXX XX XXXXXX X
TAC FAC SNR SP
• TAC = Type approval code
• FAC = Final assembly code
• SNR = Serial number
• SP = Spare
• Security Code 12345
Default security code is 12345. If you forgot your security code, there's
so many program on the net which allowed you to know the security code
likes Security ID Generator, Nokia IMEI Changer, etc.
Security ID Generator (SID.EXE) and IMEI Generator (NOKIAIMEI.EXE) doesn't
works with Nokia 5110
Resetting Security Code
If you accidentally lock the phone or forgot the security code, the best
thing to do is check it with your local Nokia dealer. For advanced user,
you can use WinTesla, PCLocals or LogoManager program to read the security
code or resetting the code (You will need an FBUS/MBUS (or compatible)
cable to do this.
• Business Card
Send an sms with the following text to a nokia phone
//SCKE2 BEGIN:VCARD N:name TEL:number END:VCARD
The recieving unit will get
BUSINESS CARD RECIEVED
They can then save the specified name and number straight to there guestbook
This can also be done with the SEND ENTRY option in the phonebook
• Software Version *#0000#
For checking the phones software (SW) - called firmware revision
e.q : Version V. 4.51 (26-03-98) will display
The Software Version (my guess is that this software has been used in
previously Nokia-phones, what do you say?!).
The Date of the SW release.
NHE-8 has something to do with the type of phone you are dealing with. Is
it GSM 900 (standard), GSM 1800 (DCS1800) or GSM 1900 (PCS1900)?
Nokia 2110, 3110, 8110(i) are all NHE types. The only thing that vary is
the code after NHE- ("8").
NHE = GSM 900, NHK =GSM 1800 - The number in the end = the model (2110i = 4
The 5110 and 6110 is called NSE-1 and NSE-3...this may be because it
supports EFR (?)
Newest Software Version was V5.22 (xx-xx-99)
• (On 2110 *#9999#)
On 2110i, may function one of the followings:
* # 170602112302 # or
* # 682371158412125 #
• Software Update
• The only thing to do is to go to the nearest Nokia dealer and make him do
it for you. Just remember that it is supposed to be free (a receipt is
required) so don't let him tell you anything else!
• SIM clock *#746025625# [*#sim0clock#]
• to check if the Sim-Clock can be Stopped. This option is depen on your
service provider network. (Sim-clock-stop is a kind of standby mode which
will save battery time)
• Waranty Code *#92702689# [*#war0anty#]
1. Displays Serial Number.
2. Displays the Month and Year of Manufacture (0698)
3. Displays (if there) the date where the phone was purchased (MMYY) you
can here set the Purchasing Date
(Warning: You can only do this once - so be careful what you write)
4. Displays the date of the last repairment - if found (0000)
5. The next screen has Transfer User Data? (the same option as the 8110)
6. To exit turn the phone off and then back on.
• Enhanced Full Rate Codec (EFR)
Enhanced Full Rate will give you much better sound quality when you enable
it. The new Enhanced Full Rate CODEC adopted by GSM uses the ASELP
(AlgebraicCode Excitation Linear Prediction) compression technology. This
technology allows for much great voice quality in the same number of bits
as the older Full Rate CODEC. The older technology was called LPC-RPE
(Linear Prediction Coding with Regular Pulse Excitation). Both operate at
13 kilobits.(but you take up more space on the network, so they can charge
*3370# and EFR will be activated after a reboot of the phone ( consumes
more power )
and EFR will be switched off after a reboot of the phone.
• Half Rate Codec (HR)
Half Rate will give you bad sound quality, which gives the service provider
the opportunity to have more calls on the network; and you might get a
lower charge from them. (Will give you 30% longer talk-time)
*4720# Half Rate coded will be activated after a reboot of the phone (
better standby time )
#4720# Half Rate coded will be de-activated after a reboot of the phone
• Unblocking Code
Unblock PIN1 : **05*PUK*newPIN1*newPIN1#
UnBlock PIN2 : **052*PUK2*newPIN2*newPIN2#
UnBlock PIN2 : **052*PUK1*newPIN2*newPIN2#
• Hiding your phone number
Dial 141 then the number you want to call eg. 141#######
This should stop your number been sent to the caller. (*)
(*) This only works on UK phones, if anybody has tried this and works,
please let me know.
