List of Samsung Secret Codes (2024) | Download PDF (2024)

Android supports a range of USSD and MMI codes to facilitate system diagnosis and hardware testing. While many of these codes work on all devices, some Android skins like One UI, Color OS, Oxygen OS, MIUI, etc. have their own set of dialer codes. This article will list all Samsung secret codes that work on the older TouchWiz, Grace UX, and the latest One UI. With these codes, you can enter Samsung engineering mode, test the network, diagnose the hardware, and get key information about your Samsung phone and Galaxy Tab.

Note: Samsung codes differ from device to device. Also, the secret code working on one software version might not work on the other.

Working MMI and USSD Codes for Samsung

If you own a Samsung phone released after 2017, try the following MMI and USSD codes on your device. Samsung Galaxy S8, S9, S10, S21, S22, S23, S24, Galaxy Note 9, Note 10, Note 20, Galaxy A and M series, Galaxy Tab S series, etc. come into this category.

1. *#06# ➡ Check IMEI, MEID, & Serial Number

We’ll begin our list with a USSD code which is anything but secret. On most mobile devices, this code displays the IMEI number. However, on Samsung Galaxy devices, typing *#06# in the phone’s dialer displays the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity), MEID (Mobile Equipment Identifier), and serial number. Moreover, the code will also display the barcodes for the IMEI and MEID numbers as shown below.

2. *#07# ➡ Check SAR Level

This again is not a Samsung-specific secret code as it works on all Android and iOS devices. Using *#07#, you can check your Samsung device’s SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) level. As we all know, all wireless devices including smartphones that use radio frequency (RF) emit electromagnetic radiation. Exposure to strong RF waves may have harmful effects on the human body. SAR is a globally accepted mechanism of measuring power absorbed per mass of tissue in the human body.

Different countries approve different levels of SAR. For example, the US government uses FCC certification which approves 1.6 W/kg, and European countries use CE certification which approves 2.0 W/kg of SAR level. The maximum SAR of a Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is 1.27 W/kg.

The FTA software version shows how often your Samsung device has been flashed. If it has been flashed once (by the OEM), it will show 001 along with the model number of your device. For example, while the FTA SW version of my new Galaxy S23 Ultra (SM-S918B) is S918B.001, the value of changes to G998B.002 on my Galaxy S1 Ultra (SM-G998B) on which I have flashed Samsung firmware with Odin once.
