Android Hidden Menu – Code Android

Most of the mobile manufacturers include a hidden service menu in their Android Devices. These menus allow users (or developers) to access some technical information and service personnel to access service details etc.

Is there a similar service menu for android devices?

What can I do with that menu?

There are several lists on the internet (just google for “secret codes”) with many of those codes. Not all of them work on all phones (some are device or manufacturer specific), but many are common to all Android devices (and some times even to all smartphones). I won’t list all of them here, but a few more important to be known include…
