Flip and find out the 5 secret codes to UNLOCK hidden iPhone features…
Tired of being called by creditors, people you don’t wan to talk to or are you overloaded with work?
Then use these codes and make your days more pleasant. Are you excited to find out, because these codes will improve your iPhone experience.
Find out how much signal you have:
You’ll need to enter the first of our secret iPhone codes *3001#12345#* into your handset’s dialer and press call. This will launch the phone’s Field Mode, a secret set of menus usually reserved for developers. While here, try holding your phone’s power button until the “slide to power off” option pops up. Now hold your handset’s home button until you see the home screen make a reappearance and goggle in wonder as your signal is now displayed as a number. If you’ve got a score around -50 you’ll be able to enjoy HD streams on the move. A score of around -120, however, and you’ll be back in the stone age.
How to find your iPhone IMEI number:
Ever been asked for your iPhone’s IMEI number? Like when changing network, reporting it stolen or getting it fixed? Well next time there’ll be no need to spend 20 minutes scrolling through every corner of your phone’s settings app trying to remember where the sodding thing is located. There’s an easier way to find your phone’s unique identifier – all you need is the secret code.
Again you’re going to want to start in the phone’s dialer. Here, entering in *#06# will bring your one-of-a-kind IMEI code to the fore. You won’t need to hit dial or anything, it will just appear – perfect for when you’re trying to remove your network lock to deal with an Apple Genius.
How to turn on Call Waiting in seconds:
To do this you’ll need to activate your iPhone’s Call Waiting, and once again, there’s a secret shortcut code for this. By entering *43# and hitting call, you’ll activate Call Waiting, which will notify you that a second call is coming in while you take the first, and even let you answer the new call straight away. Tired of being pestered? You can turn Call Waiting off again by dialling #43#.
How to keep your number secret from on-lookers:
It doesn’t have to be this way, though. Entering *#31# lets you block your number for all outgoing calls. Want to be more selective? Simply enter #31# directly before your desired number and your iPhone will hide your digits only for that call.
How to Dodge unwanted calls:
Activating this will push all incoming calls direct to voicemail without making you feel guilty about your 14th snub of the day. All you need to do is dial *#21# to activate it. Perfect for when your rammed with work or simply in need of a break. Just remember to turn it off again (done by dialing the same number) when you want to receive calls again.
