    I have a Nokia 5165 and been looking around on the web and found some codes I can put in my phone and work great like for example your voicemail. xxx-xxxxp#xxxxyour number p stands for Paluse Pound and passcode. Which is cool. ANother of mine I saw but dont sure how to use this very well. But I did enable Field Test and have a new screen on the phone. this code you enter is *3001#12345#. You will see NAM1, NAM2, SECURITY, EMERGENCY, SW VERSION, SERIAL NUMBER, PROGRAMMED, FIELD TEST. Can anyone show me some light on these items and if you know any new cool stuff that will be added let me know. IS there any other cool codes that you have and like to share as well. I like to get most out of this phone and as much as possible. Great phone never had a problem with it yet. Just want to have more menus added and more games added with putting in a few codes. Hope this gets some replays.

    Verizon
    NAM 1 and NAM 2 definitions from PhoneScoop:

    "A part of the phone that stores a wireless device's phone number, lock code, timer reset code and other user information. The NAM is programmed by the service provider when a device is activated. The NAM also associates the Mobile Identification Number (MIN) with the Electronic Serial Number (ESN).

    Some wireless phones have dual or multi-NAM features which allows the user to have more than one phone number."

    Security, emergency, software version, serial number, are all pretty much what they sound.

    Field test enables you to test the signal the phone is recieving, you SID (system identification), what tower you are on...stuff like that...

    tbursky: You want to change the alpha tag. This is possible to do so, however, you will need some codes to do this. I changed mine from Cingular to "INSERT COIN" (hehe, i saw it on the internet and had to copy it - I can change it whenever I want). In order to sucessfully change your alpha tag, you need your providers' PSID/RSID, connected system ID, operator code (SOC), country code (which is 310 for all US carriers). The first 3 are numbers, for Cingular in Dallas they are 13722, 38, and 4 respectively. These are different in each locale and by each carrier, so these codes won't work for you. You'd need to find out the codes for Tracfone in your area (www.the-mobile.net might help, under phone tips and PSID/RSID list, but it looks like they dont have many codes for Cellular one/Tracfone. Then you use the *3001#12345# code, go to NAM1, go to PSID/RSID, put in the codes, and change your alpha tag to what you desire. Then turn the phone off and back on again, and it should work (if you ahve the right codes) Whew!

    you have to have the codes in order to override the name from the tower. Furthermore, you have to change to make the chnage under NAM1/PSID - not the first alpha tag blank under NAM1.

    Are you talking about the name that displays when the phone is in standby, right above the date and time, or are you talking about when the phone is powered on??

    First you enter *3001#12345# Choose Nam1 settings. Got to banner.........then change it. You will have to power off the phone to get out of programing. Most companies now adays have programming lock codes on the phones. If you are a hacker.......you can find the code breakers online. hehe[​IMG]

    I was looking through and I was just wondering if there is some way that I, in the United States, could change my phone settings so that I could write a text message to send to my girlfriend in Venezuela who is on a different system? I know this sounds really extravagant, but who knows. It's worth a shot!

    security: the security code to reset your menu, timers, etc. (in case you forget it)
    serial: the ESN of the phone (sometimes the label on back is wrong)

    Cool, thanks for the codes tbrusky I just tried them on my Nokia 5165 and they work. I went into field test mode although I really don't know what the numbers mean. Right now I am getting -81 with 4 bars of Digital. What does camping mean after the numbers in the field test mode by the way? I see a bunch of numbers then below them there is a message saying Camping.

    I have a 5165 and a friend of mine told be about half frequency rate. Does anyone know how to turn it off? It's supposed to make the signal stronger but uses up more battery power. If anyone can let me know how to use it or if it's even possible to use on 5165 I'd really apreciate it..thanks

    On Verizon you simply put in that code *3001#12345# NAM1 then alpha tag....change it and you are good to go. No special tags or anything, very simple and easy on Verizon! (5185i) My friends with Cingular...you can change it but it never shows up on the screen, what someone said above with all those codes....thats too much trouble IMO. For once Verizon is better with the cool things since we don't have downloadable ringtones and such.

    Ok guys, here is the deal: Whether you can change the tag or not depends on the phone model not the carrier. Some Nokias are more difficult than others but it can be done.
    For some Nokias you simply go to the Alphatag in NAM1. Now, for those with a 5160, 5165, 8260 or 3360 you can still change it by going to the "PSID/RSID lists" menu inside NAM1. Select P/RSID1, then scroll to PSID/RSID and enter your local Private SID (PSID) then scroll down to Connected system ID and enter your home SID (the same number that is under NAM1 as "Home System ID"). After "Connected system ID" scroll down and you'll see an "Alphatag" field. This is where you enter what you want the phone to show up. Scroll down to SOC and enter 2049 for AT&T people and 3 for Cingular users. Country code should be 310. Don't mess with any other settings or you will screw your phone.
    Now, I mentioned that you need a Private SID number (PSID/RSID). Go to this website to find the PSID number for your area: http://www.the-mobile.net/psid/index.asp

    If you don't enter these correctly, the tag you entered won't work. The trick about these settings is that it makes your phone think that there is another service available called "Private System" besides your default service which is known as the "Public system". If the phone sees there's a private system it will use those settings you entered in PSID/RSID lists including the alphatag and not the default settings from your operator. If the numbers are not entered correctly, the phone won't identify a "Private system" and will ignore your settings and use the default settings from your provider.

    Ok I am going to start from the top:

    Anonymous from June 29, Activation for what? your phone company has to enter your ESN in their system before you can say potato on your cell phone.

    CAMPING just means your phone has registered with a tower and has a signal. Basically waiting to be used.
    Here's more info: http://geckobeach.com/cellular/secrets/nokia_secrets.htm

    Reception can be boosted by installing an external antenna or buying an amplifier.
    Go here: http://www.alternativewireless.com
    And look in Antennas.
