Playing around with cellphones, apart from normal everyday stuff like computers, can be fun too…except for the fact that it can be dangerous to play around with in case you goof up something. I haven’t had time to come up with a full-fledged review of my LG KG300 Dynamite as I had promised earlier, but until then you can play around with what I’m telling you. Hopefully, you’ll mess something up on your LG mobile, and give enogh of a time break for me to write a review on this.

Okies, now this is only for (most) LG phones. Of course, I’m not going to talk about normal kid stuff like *#06# – a universal standard on all mobiles which shows its IMEI number. Nope, the one I have for you is…

2945#*#

Just enter this on your LG mobile, and it’ll bring up a factory menu.

Don’t try this at home, kids, chicks, gents, baboons, chimpanzees or any other life form that you are; in case you have a penchant for messing things up. Most importantly, don’t fiddle around unless you know what you’re doing.

Now, all the functions are too extensive to go into, because I’ll have to explain the more obscure ones. Suffice to say that don’t use the NAND / NVRAM format options. The stuff which you’ll find interesting is the WAP section, which can be helpful to you in enabling some features which might slow your phone down if you continue using them, like the one on headers. The other thing you might find interesting is the Audio section, but ONLY if you know what you’re doing.

Anyway, the one I wrote this for was the ADC option, under the Device section. I’ve come across many people who cry that their (LG) phone (or any other brand) gets too hot during use / charging. What this option does is, it shows you in serial order (in case you can’t figure it out, in which case you shouldn’t be doing all this):

  1. Battery voltage
  2. Battery temperature – This is the one people might be interested in; to see if their phone is heating up excessively. Value is reported in degree Celsius.
  3. Auxiliary battery voltage
  4. Current
  5. Charging socket voltage

Do note that these are approximate values, and some of the figures might be available in some LG cell phones. Also, if you happen to go to service centre, for your own good, don’t tell them you found out stuff (or indeed, changed anything) this way because they might use that as an excuse to claim you violated the warranty rules.

Once again, don’t play around with this stuff in case you don’t know what EXACTLY you’re doing. DO NOT try to experiment anything, it’ll only lead to tears if you get it wrong.
