If you do have an iPhone, there are a lot of tips and tricks that you don’t know but you can do on your phone. Well, since you are a proud owner of that cool and expensively cool gadget, why not make the most of it! Here is a list of top 13 shortcuts and hacks that can make your life easier.

 

1. Hide your Number

 

Sounds like a joke, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not a joke in the least and you don’t need to believe me either. Pick up your phone and simply dial *#31# and you’ll know.

 

 

 

 

2. Check SMS Center

 

We are in the age where SMS has become barbaric stuff but you can’t deny that you do use it at times and if you want to check your SMS center, dial *#5005*7672#.

 

 

 

 

3. Know your IMEI Number

 

International Mobile Equipment Identity, or simply IMEI number, is the Aadhar number of your phone, unique to every single unit. It is generally written behind the battery and if you want it to display on the screen, just dial: *#06#.

 

 

 

 

4. Call Forwarding

 

When your phone is busy and you need to check a number in order to decide if you want to forward this call or not, all you have to do is to dial *#67# and your will shall be done.

 

 

 

 

5. Check Missed Calls

 

Missing calls in nothing but one tension of life and especially when your boyfriend asks you where you were or your friends irritate you over it. Now, dial *#61# to check the number of missed calls and get rid of this tension of life, at least.

 

 

 

 

6. Improve voice quality

 

Ooh! Can you improve the voice quality of the calls yourself? Yes, you can! *3370# is what you need to dial to activate Enhanced Full Rate (EFR) and the sound quality will get better in an instant. Caution: Be wary of faster reduction of battery life.

 

 

 

 

7. Check Bill Balance

 

If you have a postpaid connection, dial *225# from your iPhone and check the bill balance as per your convenience and as many times as you want. Being aware of the bill status is good, you know!

 

 

 

 

8. Know Your Minutes

 

At times, you are really phone-budget constrained and knowing the available minutes can really help you to use them wisely. Type and dial *646# and know the same, valid only for postpaid users.

 

 

 

 

9. Check Account Balance

 

Don’t worry, we have something for prepaid users too. From your iPhone, dial *777# and you will be able to check the account balance with this code.

 

 

 

 

10. Explore secret settings

 

Caught your attention, eh? Your iPhone has a field mode containing all of its inner settings as well as cell and network information. To open it, dial: *3001#12345#*. How to remember? Imagine yourself watching the movie: 300. So, 300+you, is 3001 and 12345 is basic. It may just work okay!
