Nokia (most models) Easter Egg - Debug Back Door

Most Nokia phones have a back door that lets you change many of the settings in the phone. When doing this PLEASE only do it for humor on your OWN personal phone. If you change anything please know that it can render your phone inoperable.

OK heres how to do it!

1. Turn the phones power on and get to the normal screen where you can enter phone numbers.

2. Enter into the phone the following sequence:

" *3001#12345# "

3. As soon as you enter the last "#" sign your phone will enter the debugging back door. If it does not work, than your phone does not support this code, which is rare. You can change the security codes, the NAM settings and the phones # and programming dates. Please know that any settings you change here can only be changed back by going back in or having the phone re-flashed by your dealer.

4. A cool feature you can use is the Field Test feature which is last on the list. You can choose to have the lights on all the time or have the field test active where it will actually display the information coming in from the towers it receives a signal from.

5. To get out of this mode simply turn the phone off and back on again. If you turn the field test on it will be on when you turn the phone back on. To turn off any features turned on go back into the programming the same way and turn it off.

That's it! Have fun but be good...

Folks, I have received a few e-mails about this egg. Please note that as far as I can tell it works ONLY ON US NOKIA PHONES. The debug code came out back when the 5100 series phones came out so don't get edgy if your new phone doesn't let you in. If you are having troubles and your default security password is different from 12345 try entering your default password instead of that. This code still works on my new 3560 so I know its still valid. I've tested it on a dozen different models successfully. Thanks

Keep in mind that the *3001#12345# code ONLY works on CDMA or D-AMPS (TDMA) Nokia phones. I tried this on a 2280, 3105, 6255, 6225 and a 2112 and it works on those
