    In some cases, you will need to be on the Home screen when you enter these codes...

    Hey all you pearl users this does work for the pearl. For example on the first code for the change the decibel meter. The code N M L L. The keys on the pearl have two letters. So you type the BN key twice. Then the M L and L keys once and it works. You have to pretend your typing T9 for these codes.

    These instructions work for a 8320 curve but its the RIGHT alt key not the left
