Re: Tips and tricks - Samsung GS4

SprintCare,

In the Sprint Galaxy S4 support section, is there a list of the special commands that are used to test/reset/correct various aspects of the device?

For example, SprintCare told me about a ##72786# command to refresh the S4's network settings.  A couple months ago, SprintCare told me how to reset my phone's compass calibration by entering a special code.  I'm sure there's an entire list of these special commands, and what they do.  I just can't find it at the Sprint website.  It's inconvenient and inefficient to have to call Sprint or post a message to this forum for every issue, if a user-controlled "fix" is readily available.  Thank-you.

Ahh I considered these tips and tricks standard same old tricks and tips

Where the best tricks and tips come in is when you learn to root and customize your phone

For example on my standard battery im getting 2 days without charging with 7 to 8 hours of screen time

Good morning Allen,

Thank you for reaching out to us. We have basic troubleshooting steps that we use, depending on the issues. We don't have a list of special commands for the Galaxy S4. The ##72786# that you were given is used on most android phones to reset the network settings. You can also find basic troubleshooting steps in the user guide for the device.

Re: Tips and tricks - Samsung GS4

this would be pretty helpful..BUT..it could also backlash onto people if they have no clue what theyre doing. a lot of the commands you can put in will put them into areas that they shouldnt be making any random changes to. i would see this as a problem. worst case scenario they can always do a list that only contains the plain and simple ones that someone with lesser knowledge cant mess up...hopefully.

Re: Tips and tricks - Samsung GS4

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread.  Although the most useful tip of adding my work phone number to the lock-screen in case my S4 was lost, is not S4 specific, it was something I found very useful.  Thank-you!
