Do you know there are many Android secret codes in your Android mobile? If no, let me tell you there are many useful secret codes for android which you can use by entering some number codes on your mobile.

I was just surfing through internet to look for codes and I ended up with collecting 50+ Android secret codes which are very useful and you can use on your smartphone if you want full control on your Android device.
Mobile manufacturers do not inform you about these useful secret codes because they are very technical and may lend your mobile to failure.

Many geeks and developers made these hidden codes open on many websites and forums, we are very thankful for them who are working hard to make these Android codes accessible to we people.
Below is the list of codes of leading smartphones, Almost many of them will work on Samsung smartphones and few of them are only for particular manufacturers, I have listed them in separate sections.

Please note than few of the codes are dangerous and may delete your data or reset your settings, so be careful while dialing them on your mobile. Please read the description of the code first and then apply the code. So lets start with Android secret codes and hidden codes.
