Do dialer codes (such as *#debug) work on Samsung phones?


Recommended Posts

Also *#*#4636#*#* is the test menu

*#*#checkin#*#* forces the phone to check for any OTA

What exactly do these dialer codes do?

They launch hidden utility apps. Such apps often can also be invoked by making a shortcut within a third-party launcher such a LauncherPro in lieu of Touchwiz. Yet another method that might work is a standalone laucher app such as QuickShortcutMaker, which seems to work with many hidden utilities on my Samsung Epic 4G. (I don't have a GS3.)


These methods might launch some LTE utilities on the GS3, which we don't know much about. It may be that this is a route to try tweaking the LTE/EVDO fallback thresholds, as Robert has suggested.
