Star Codes - Network Updates?
Edited by ATTDmitriyCM on Jun 5, 2014 at 12:45:51 PM

As I recall, there was a *code that would update or improve the mobile phone's connectivity with local cell towers...or somthing like that.  Does anyone know what this code is or if it is even relevant today?

 

Thank you.

You're thinking of verizon wireless.

*228 with them.

With AT&T, it's enough to turn off your phone for a min, and turn it back on.

Verizon uses older CDMA network, where extra nudging like that helps.

Supposedly the GSM should auto update.

 

The bottom line is, it doesn't exist.
