Phone.app codes

From The Apple Wiki

Like many other GSM phones, iPhone supports special codes that can be entered via keypad.

(The codes must be confirmed using the " call" button.)

Standard GSM codes

Code Description
*#06# Display IMEI


iPhone proprietary, GSM models

*3001#12345#* Start the Field Test app (on iOS <> 4.0.x)

The following codes support (some of) the standard GSM code prefixes:

*# - inquiry/check status
** - set value and activate
*  - reactivate
#  - "temporarily" deactivate
## - deactivate and clear settings

This code is carrier and/or device specific, but it's listed here for being of historical relevance as a part of a procedure capable of bypassing the Activation screen on iPhone OS 1.1.1: #301# through *#309# Generates fake incoming call; the phone will become kind of messed up, thinking that it's on a call until you restart. Can be used to stream music to Bluetooth headset.

iPhone proprietary, CDMA models

The following codes support (some of) the standard GSM code prefixes:

*# - inquiry/check status
** - set value and activate
*  - reactivate
#  - "temporarily" deactivate
## - deactivate and clear settings
