    Default BlackBerry Easter Eggs (secrets)?

    Being that it's easter and all, I thought I might start a thread about secrets (sometimes called "easter eggs") on the various BlackBerry devices...

    When I say "secrets", I'm referring to hidden/un-documented menus, secret-un-documented games and codes, etc.

    So, being that all phones have at least one of the above, does anyone know any secrets (easter eggs) for their BlackBerry device?

    ALT+LGLG = event log

    On the BB 8830 curve (Sprint edition) you can enter ##038601 to bring up a programming menu. Be careful here. Even if you make the correct changes, you'll nuke your messaging for about an hour (or less).

    I'd like to see more ##000000 codes to see what they do. I'll look around and see what I can find (if anything).

    Feed the need™

    As a Blackberry tech-support agent for A Company (not sure if HR and Corporate permit me to identify my employer), I *strongly advise against* messing with those kinds of codes blindly -- you can mess up a lot more than just your messaging.

    That '##' code you discovered, Joe, appears (relatively) benign, but there are more of them that are used internally and are for specific functions and settings on your handset that, once broken, are very difficult to un-break.

    Tread carefully, and always ask before you dial an unknown code.

    Alt + NMLL - changes the Bar signal meter to a Db (numbered) signal meter

    I'm prettyt sure it works on all blackberrys I learned of it a while ago on a guys 8700 (I think that's what it was)
    and it still works on curve, bold, pearl, and I think the tour (only what I've tried it on)

    Well happy hunting.
