Getting the most out of your i8910HD: Manufacturer Codes

with 14 comments

*#0228#

As I mentioned in my review of the Samsung i8910HD, there are several manufacturer codes that can be used to tweak performance of all sorts of different features. While the phone is very capable out of the box, it’s a real advantage to be able to access these hidden settings to tune your device exactly to your liking. In this brief, I’ll go some of the major tweaks, how to perform the tweaks yourself, and how to not damage your phone in the process.

This list is my compilation of information found on the Samsung i8910 Omnia forums and all credit goes to Briggs and the members. If you’d like to read about more device codes to experiment with,  please feel free to give them a visit and say thanks if you do.

Before you attempt any of the codes found in this guide, I want to warn that it is not clear what implications this may have on your warranty. While this guide is safe to make minor improvements to the i8910HD, I take no liability for any damage you do to your phone if you experiment outside the parameters of this guide, nor if your warranty becomes void from performing any of these changes. You are making alterations to your device at your own risk. It is also recommended you write down the previous values for any settings you change in the event you want to change them back to default.

An epiphany, and waiting for the Samsung OmniaHD

with 7 comments

Back in January, I came to a firm realization. While I thoroughly enjoy mobile technology, I enjoy it for the wrong reasons. When I was a young teenager, I enjoyed buying the latest and greatest mobile phones because of a “my phone’s better than your phone” attitude. As I have been living my life around the actions and ideas of this lifestyle for several years, doing so became habit to the point of no longer enjoying it. I had been wasting far too much time pouring over mobile tech sites and forums waiting to hear about the “next” device that I would buy that would have more features (many of which I probably wouldn’t use) and perpetuate this lifestyle. The motives of a habitual childish interest started to bleed into the aspects I genuinely liked about mobile devices, even as far as this blog. I’m sure some of you know exactly what I’m talking about. As of 3 months ago, I’m done, and after I get my hands on an OmniaHD, I’ll really be done.
