    Wow, haven't heard of that one in years... that is from 2010 or so (December 2010 according to the article) so it is quite out of date, like 6 or 7 years old so you are talking about mid-Froyo (2.2) or early Gingerbread (2.3) days. Not all phones use the same dialer codes, although some are mostly universal not all are. My guess is that code isn't compatible with your device, or most likely most devices today. Most devices now have update checks embedded in Settings - About Phone

This is because when you type the # there, the dialpad thinks it as a secret code and try tp trigger the function. It is a bug

Once I had the same problem in my old device.

To type the number,

1.*#*##*#* then add the number between them


2.*#*#*#* then add the number and # between them

  • I have known I can't upgrade 4.2.2+ but I can use cyanogenmod
