July 6, 2014 / IST / Tips & Tricks.

As pointed out from comments these are mostly for Samsung, I have added some for HTC below. Like I said this is just a start we can build form it. If anyone would like to create a Google Doc from this information please feel free I will add a link to this post.

if you have Verizon, you need to do this before you can use these: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2303905

Root required for this step. Some codes will work if you have Verizon and no root. Test at your own risk!


Didn’t see a list of useful codes for Android, I found a list for iPhone though, please share any commands you may have that might be useful. I will update this list with anything posted in the comments.

(This was a copy and pasta from another site, but still useful information.)

WARNING: Use at your own risk, I have not tested all of these codes. I do not know if they will work on your device.

/u/AFinn: There is also an app called “Secret Codes” which will find other codes that are used by applications and not the OS itself. Some apps let you access secret settings with these codes.

These are not “Android” secret codes. These are “Samsung” secret codes. Except one of two none of them will work on any device other than a Samsung phone.

F.A.Q.

Q: So how do you enter these codes?

A: Enter using the dialer.
