    Secret Menus

    EDIT: ROOT NOT NEEDED FOR THIS TO WORK.

    This is a list of the codes to get into the secret menus on the SF. The list has been complied mostly by egg_head over at XDA, as well as a few others.

    I shouldn't have to say it, but I will..
    I nor this forum or the op is not responsible if you brick your phone.
    Play with these things at your own risk.
    Even if I said it's been tested by me and confirmed to work.
    It's not my fault if your phone takes a crap on you.
    Make a backup of your phone.


    Some members of another forum where having trouble using these codes and I've discovered that you need Hidden menu enabled. To enable Hidden menu, do the following:

    Go into the Dialer and enter *#83786633 then press the Home key
    Go back into the phone dialer and enter *#22745927
    Now a box will come up asking for the SPC code. Enter 000000
    Press the Hidden menu Enable radio button.

    Now you can use these codes.



    The dialing code string you have to use is *##

    Here are some things you can gain access to


    Audio Tuning
    *#28346#
    Several audio tuning menus.
    I've only tested the two items below:

    To silence boot and shutdown audio go to Situation/BOOTSOUND and turn the values to 0. I've tested and confirmed this works.

    To silence the volume key audio when turning the volume up/down go to Situation/VOLUMEKEY and turn the values to 0. I've tested and confirmed this works.


    Full Bat Popup
    *#3844228#
    This allows you to disable the full battery pop-up.
    I have tested this and it works successfully.


    HwCodec
    *#0002*28346#
    Audio path volume controls. Most importantly, it looks like there's a sidetone adjustment.
    I have not tested any of these items yet.


    Shutdown
    *#7594#
    This enables you to shut your phone off by long-pressing the power/lock key.
    No more pop-up confirmation.
    I have tested this and it works successfully.
    I also need to point out that this disables your slide lock screen.

    Diag/Testing Mode
    *#4636*1111#


    GPSSetup menu
    *#1472365#

    The settings are set to the "fixed" values by default.
    You can go into Command and then start GPS and force a satellite lock.
    There's other cool info there too.

    *#7594#

    If your enable this, it appears to not only shutdown your phone with a long press of the power key, but it also disables your lock screen (puzzle/glass screen).

    More codes to follow as we dig them out.

    Back out.

    Other Codes (thanks Dlwicksel!):

    *#7780# - Factory data reset

    *#232331# - BluetoothTest

    *#2664# - Touchscreen Accuracy Test
    Nice if you want to see how accurate your touchscreen is

    *#0283# - ServiceMode - PACKET LOOPBACK
    Need to hit home to get out - I couldn't get this to do anything but it could be the data packet that you sent coming back to you on the loopback device

    *#767*3855# - Factory Format - WARNING!!!
    Will go to Hands Free Activation
    Nice if you'd like to reactivate your phone, it will do so automatically

    *#197328640# - ServiceMode - Menu key to bring up menu - WARNING!!!
    Will turn off your radio - Not sure what this does

    *#0011# - ServiceMode - Force Closes - Menu key to bring up menu

    *#32489# - ServiceMode - Force Closes - Menu key to bring up menu
    Doesn't seem to affect the radio

    *#2580# - ServiceMode - Not sure what this does

    *#745# - Sec_RIL_Dump - Has the LogFileList
    Copy to phone memory/Copy to SD card(grayed out)/View Ril Log(grayed out)/Clear Ril Log/Exit
    Probably dumps the logs for the Radio Interface Layer (RIL) between the Operating System and the phone's radio and modem
    I haven't tested a dump yet

    *#9900# - SysDump
    copy logcat/dumpstate/dumpsys/enable debug log/copy/watchdogdumpstatelog
    Probably dumps the logs for the Operating System kernel
    I haven't tested a dump yet

    Updated above info. Wherever instructed to enter an SPC code, dial 000000. The differs from Sprint customers who have to enter an MSL code, which they typically don't have.

    Sweet! I love further customizations... ditching the boot sounds, full battery notification and the shutdown confirmation (and subsequent screen lock) were all cool tweaks.

    Thanks!

    The code to change the voice codec EVRC to EVRC-B has been found. Just follow the directions below. If it dials the code you entered then you need to follow the steps in the first post to enable the secret menus.

    Open the dialer then press
    **772
    SPC code 000000
    The bottom of the screen will have buttons that are directional like a d-pad.

    Press down until you see:
    SVC Mode NAM1
    End of BASIC NAM
    Exit

    Press right once you will see EXIT change to MORE
    Hit enter
    Press Down once and you will See
    HomePage VoiceSO
    EVRC
    Push right button to change to EVRC-B
    Hit OK Phone will reboot

    I made a few calls after this and was told by everyone that the quality was so much better.

    I've gotten into the hidden menu once before. Do I need to re-enable the menu, or should I be able to go right in to the dialer and punch *#28346# for Audio Tuning? When I do so, the digits disappear, but no menu appears.

    I've gotten into this menu once before; how can I return?

    Do I need to re-enable the hidden menu? When I punch *#28346# to get into Audio Tuning, the digits disappear, but no menu appears.

    Running Sonofskywalker3's build your own ROM, but I am certain that I was when I initially got into the menu.

    Excellent post Kam! Thanks! I look forward to trying some of these out, especially disabling the slide lock/unlock feature.

    Yea if you are having issues getting back into the menus, you will need to enable them again. I had the same issue and found that they were disabled, not sure what caused it but an easy fix.

    As I was researching the Fascinate before it came out, I came across a number of sites that showed our phone could play FM radio. For some reason it was disabled before being released to the masses. Is there a code that will enable the FM radio feature?
