    Here's some handy codes for quick access to certain areas of the iPhone.

    Accessible from the Phone app you can do the following :-

    *#06# - Displays IMEI number (equivalent to going to Settings, General, About)
    *#21# - Displays call info, forwarding, voice/data
    *#62# - same as above, but if service not available.
    ##002# - Disables call forwading
    *#30# - Allows/Block the number calling you
    *#31# - Allows you to hide your number
    *#33# - List multiple configurations (Call, SMS, data etc) and show weather they are enabled or not
    *#61# - Show missed call
    *#43# - Verify Call waiting status and other info
    *3001#12345#* - Displays inner phone settings

    I thought these codes died out on the old back/white Nokia days. but they are still used today....

    Times haven't changed that much :)

    Just curious. Do the particular codes I quote from you above apply to Sprint?

    Or are they only specific to your carrier? If so, you should probably note that.

    This code in particular is very curious considering that it's not until iOS 7 that Apple has allowed call blocking and only in limited form. So, this to me indicates that it's specific to your particular carrier.

    Not everyone is on your carrier.

    I dunno, I'm not with Sprint. I'm with Vodafone

    I haven't tested these with other carriers, but try and see, some may work, some may not...

    This is just for reference/information purposes.
