Collection of Tips and Tricks for Nokia Phones

Emergency Phone or Smartphone?

There are plenty of options, settings and handy commands for using a Nokia phone that are obvious when you turn on the device for the first time. However, there are also phone hacks or secret codes that can reveal hidden, but useful functions on the phone. There are secret codes that can save battery consumption and memory usage on the phone, unlock the phone if you’ve been locked out, retrieve the manufactured date of your phone, MAC address, IMEI numbers and the firmware version of the phone in no time. You can also use secret codes to save battery power by disabling HR quality voice mode for emergency purposes since you only have 20% battery power (this is useful if your battery is low already and you aren’t ready to recharge it yet). You can even change the boring network operator logo.

What is neat is that some Nokia phones can reveal, by using secret codes, the phone numbers of the people who tried hiding the number they used to call you (private call numbers)! Start playing around and have fun using your new Nokia phone and if you find these tips cool and helpful which I’m sure you will, bookmark this guide or share it with family members, friends or colleagues.
