My Gov. teacher was talking to us today about some sort of codes that you can type into your phone, and certain stuff happens.

He said *3370# would give you longer battery life if you had a low battery. There were other things, too, but I can't remember them. And does it matter what type of phone you have? Cuz I have the VX8500 (Chocolate), and I'm not sure if that will work.

Search your phone model + hacks in google. You will find a lot.
And the battery life expands because that code makes the antena less powerful.

While hacking a cell might be possible, I really doubt that battery life thing.
A battery has what it has, it can't just magically conjur up more juice to keep it running. When it's low, it's low, and it needs power. Theres just no way that a code could do that, unless it's some kind of energy sucking machine that extracts some kind of power from the air.

....It won't work.

EDIT:
The antena thing sounds possible but then why would you use your cell with godaweful/no reception?

And extending batt. life sounds rediculuous, if it does make the antenna weak, then wtf is the point?

If you're in a high traffic area, you can operate without much of an antenna.
You can change settings on your phone so that certain operations don't run, which cuts the power demands of the phone, so the battery lasts longer. Same as what the power management feature does on laptops.

yeah, i don't even listen to slipknot anymore, but at the time i joined i really liked it.

This makes a lot of sense. I didn't believe him when he was talking about it because I didn't think most of the stuff could work, but I guess one of the other things he mentioned worked for other people. And I think he may do crack, but that's beside the point.

I never thought of that.
I guess my initial thought of what the streadstarter said was along the lines of "type in 1337 for godmode" and it sounded ridiculous.

Go you smart December 06'er. That other guy... saying shit about christmas presents... Piss off!!! We don't like people like you. All you do is go into threads and start arguing with people, not even talking about what the thread is about!... [sound like anyone? (ME)] Lol jk, 'cause now I actually WILL talk about this mobile phone shit.

...

I think that code is dumb... like you lose the power of your antenna to save you once. Next time the battery went low, you wouldn't be able to do it again... would you? If you couldn't, then you're ****ed =] Well not really, since its only a stupid mobile phone, which you don't actually need to live a normal life...

Yeah, it reduces signal power, so you get slightly more battery life. There's another code you put in, to get this code you can give to the cops if your phone is stolen, and they can completely block your phone.

only thing like that which i know of is a code you put in that tells you what date your phone was made on and some other random info like that. can't remember what it was now though.

I have a Motorola RAZR V3t and there are a lot of things you can do to it.

It's not so much random codes you can type into your keypad. On the Motorolas, you can do what they call "Seem Edits" which is where you actually go in and change the binary code of the phone. For instance, if you change seem A4-3 from a 0 to a 1, it will change something. I don't know if that's a real one, or if I'm even remembering the names of the seems correctly, but that's the idea.

On mine, I changed to display "club lights" where the phone actually responds to external noise and lights up different parts of the phone. If I were listening to music, it will light up the keypad, screen, outer screen, etc... to the beat. There are other functions, like changing how it stores text messages so you can increase the available memory and stuff, too.

I know a lot of people use this to unlock features the provider limits which are inherently stored on the phone by the manufacturer (for instance, if your phone has a camera or something, but it doesn't work because of your provider).

The only thing is that you have to be extremely careful. One wrong turn and you just turned your phone into a paper weight. You can find the initial program files your provider installs on your phone when they receive it from the manufacturer, but you have to be careful to get the exact model for your phone/provider.
