This article has been written to introduce to you some hidden codes that exist for Androids. After this article, you may be able to discover some hidden settings intended for use by manufacturers, developers, or mobile phone operators as tools to troubleshoot your device. First of all, you'll need to open your Phone dial the desired codes listed below.

But please take note that some of the codes are meant for a specific smartphone model or different versions of Android and so if nothing happens after you've input a code, kindly skip it.

To find information about your device using the following codes:

*#06# - Display Phone IMEI.

*#*#4636#*#* - Display Phone's general information.
