Blackberry Secret Codes

Blackberry secret codes for hidden menus work a bit differently to all other manufacturers since you don’t use the *#code# sequence but rather activate most of the codes by holding the ALT key. As always it is right to point out that these are not some magic Blackberry hacks just the codes to access the hidden menu systems which people commonly refer to as the Blackberry secret codes. A lot of the Blackberry Secret codes are actually shortcuts to the hidden menu areas that people are simply not aware of. To use these codes you just have to enter the key sequence as specified.
