List of iPhone Codes Found in CommCenter

Factory AT&T iPhone Unlock

As you probably know, CommCenter is a service that handles network connectivity on such iDevices as iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch. This is a .plist file which can be found in  /System/library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist. By disabling it the user will lose all the cellular-related services and staring from iPhone OS 2.0 – loss of Wi-Fi networking until rebooting the device.

commcenter codes

By using some of the CommCenter commands listed below you can perform a wide range of interesting manipulations with your device such as baseband log dump, various operations with SMSC etc.

Before you start any manipulations with your device using CommCenter codes read those warnings carefully:

Warning 1: Probably you’ll need to change the prefix from the set of (*#, **, ##) to initiate a new log dump. The logs are not “tail” able, since this is a single dump, with no additional data written. It looks like, the logs always have the same size. Logfiles are stamped with the current date.

Warning 2: Stock iPhone with AT&T was used for this test. Maybe those error messages show debug features available only on specific debug cellular base-station (CONJECTURE only!)’

Here is the  table of CommCenter commands supported by iPhone using the phone keyboard.

#307# is a call loop into the iphone, it makes a call to itself.

#5005*62255#   translates to something like MCALL/NCALL/OCAL.

#5005*87223#   translates to Trace.

“#31# number” to hide caller id. To call and not show your call number.

Interesting to note that the number codes correspond to the alphabets to spell out the service

Voicemail: #5005*86# => 86 = VM

SMSC: #5005*7672# => 7672 = SMSC

The code for vm number is the vm routing number which you need to get from your service provider does work on the iPhone 4. (I work tech for a cell phone company and we use it all the time)

Some other codes that can be entered just using iDevice’s keypad:

iphone Field test

*#06# – IMEI number (International Mobile Equipment Identity). This code is usual for many other phones.

    Can these commands work with a different carrier or in fact with no carrier at all? For example I remove the sim card and then try? If not is it possible to create a way to replicate these commands say with OpenBTS, another project I have heard of.
