*#*#4636#*#* That's what you need to dial on your Android to get into the test mode.


Isn't there an app for that? ;-)

That "app" would be a contact - maybe on speed dial or enabled for voice-dialing, right?

@Ragnar: That App would be AnyCut.

*#*#INFO#*#* is easier to remember. 8)

Robert, why is a dedicated app needed if all that's necessary is dialing a given number? I mean, I don't own an Android device (yet), but I would assume that I can place a shortcut to a phone number from my address book on the start screen...

Ragnar Schierholz, 2010-06-21

Well, since you don't know a thing, you can still speculate about the difference between dialing a number and typing a keyboard sequence. :-)

Volker Weber, 2010-06-21

And there is one for *#*#CHECKIN#*#* too. Still not what it's good for, though...

Ups - ich kaufe ein "sure" ;-)

Thomas Cloer, 2010-06-21

@Ragnar: no app needed at all. And BTW: that's not "dialing". :-) It's making Field Service applications startable without actually having to make them accessible through menu entries.

Actually there are lots of these. Try TALK (8255) instead of INFO.
