4 iPhones Secrets You'd be Glad You Know

People are fond of talking about feature-rich gadget from Apple called iPhone. There is some level of respect accorded to those who can afford it especially in developing countries. Even when some other smart phones possess similar features to iPhone at lower cost, some people still opt for it. I know of a friend who has never bought any other smart phone for almost a decade. He always update himself with the latest iPhone. Am still waiting to see what will happen as Apple release iPhone 7.

Will it not be better if iPhone lovers know how to make better use of their phone and get more value for their money? There are some hidden powers your iPhone possess that you cannot find in the manual that came with it. I am going to share with you great iPhone secret codes you'll be glad you're aware of.

Know where Your Text Messages End Up before Reaching the Recipient

 When you send SMS, they're not delivered directly to the recipient's phone. The message sent is first forwarded wirelessly to a message center through a specific phone number. You can find out this phone number by dialing *#5005*7672#.


  Increase your Phone Signal Strength

Improving the signal strength of a phone is a very good thing that comes in handy when one is in a location with poor network coverage. Dial *3001#12345#* to increase your signal strength, this will bring up some options. Simply ignore the options. Immediately hold down the power button. When the power screen pops up, hold the home button until you're back on the home screen. If all these steps were rightly followed, the signal strength will improve. You'll see a number instead of bars or circles in the top left. Now you need to know what these numbers mean. Strong signal strength is between -40 and -80. Anything below that is a bad signal,-140 means you have no signal at all.

Getting Phone Identity

There are ways we humans identify ourselves. For example one may need to provide his/her student identity card to granted access into a seminar. The cars we ride can be identified by the VIN number. Likewise, a phone has an identification number unique to it. This is known as the International Mobile Equipment Identity number or the IMEI number. To know your iPhone's IMEI number, dial *#06#. 

Block Your Caller ID 

 To do this, just dial the code #31# before dialing the person's number. He/She will be unable to discern that you're the one calling.
