Are There Any Secret Codes You Can Use With Your Mobile Phone?

According to Phone Arena, secret codes that can be activated by inputting them into a device's keypad exist for various mobile phones. Some generic Android device secret codes include "*#*#4636#*#*", which displays battery and usage statistics, and "*#*#7780#*#*", which resets Android devices to their factory settings.

Secret codes exist for mobile phones developed by many companies, including Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Sony. HTC mobile devices, for example, enter diagnostic mode when the code "##3424#" is entered into the phone's keypad. Some hidden codes for Sony mobile devices include "*#*#273283*255*663282*#*#*", which quickly creates a backup of all media files on the device, and "*2767*3855#", a code that initiates a factory reset on the Xperia Z.
