  2. Now type *#*#4636#*#*
  3. In the resulting menu, navigate down to Phone Information tab.
  4. Now click on refresh next to SMSC tab.
  5. Once done, change the first two “00“ digits to “+”.

  1. This is bs. Resulting menu? Phone information? None of this is visible anywhere on my Atrix HD! Either is a SMSC tab. UGHHHHHHH!

    • One more thing, my phone won’t dial *#*#4636#*#*…it erases it off the board when I type the last symbol (*). Too many numbers perhaps. I’m so frustrated I could throw this phone across the room right now!

  2. The author made a terrible mistake

    Step 2) The number should be changed from *#*#4636*#*# ti Now type *#*#4636#*#*

    Caused me an error for ages till I tried that variation
