SECRET CODES FOR SAMSUNG STAR 3g s5233 samsung, samsung 3g
Ok, here are all the codes you need to make sure you phone is working like it should.
The codes are keyed in using the Keypad.
*#06# Displays your IMEI
*#78# Test touch configurations , Sort of an Admin menu.
*#03# Displays a Unique number, specific for your phone I guess.
*#7465625# Phone lock status
*#232337# Bluetooth MAC Address
*#1234# Software Version running on your phone.
*#2222# Hardware Version of your phone.
*#0228# Displays battery information.
*#0289# Melody test
*#0782# Displays the real time clock of your phone.
*2767*2878# Displays a Service menu.(seems like it contains all the goodies :D )
*2767*3855# Beware: This code performs a full reset. Use it only when you are screwed up.
*#0842# Vibration test
*#0*# Speaker & LCD display Tests
Going through pages looking for a way to put Java applications directly from the PC into
my Samsung GT-S5230, I found this code to access admin settings (*#6984125*#),
it has a lot more options than the codes you provided, including "Internals",
which enable the user to update Java and applications database, however,
when you try to access this option, a master key will be requested,
and you must enter the following code, *#9072641*#.

goodluck i hope can help you
