    Code Entry Mode Shortcut???

    OK..........I have used this before and just cannot remember the code. But there is a way to get to "code entry" without going through the prepaid menu. It's entered from the main screen like you would be dialing a number. I believe it starts with either * or # followed by 2-3 digits and may be followed by * or #............... anybody know?????????????????

    You are right (at least on older phones), they have told me two or three times what it is -- but I still do not remember. In the day of analog phones there was also a shortcut to get the phone number without a prepaid menu as well.

    It's *#33248#. (*#debit#)

    If I may ask, do you have some need for it, tracnet, or is it just curiosity?

    Don't worry, I didn't take you serious. After all, it was just a "dream."

    Hey and I don't mind humor as long as it's clean. You can make it as confusing as you want, just keep it clean.

    Maybe if you entered *#credit# instead of *#debit#, you'd get free minutes for life... ;-) Or maybe just an unexpected visit to the Risk Management Department...
    I guess I don't know the right people, because I can't get away with anything around here... Rest assured, though, I will never maliciously properly quote anybody again!

    Nope, doesn't work either. We all know how to get unlimited free units, and tracnet knows all too well about the consequences of ill-gotten gain.

    Yes indeedy! He certainly does.

    But remember that nobody likes a quitter. Of course nobody likes a winner either, at least not for long.

    So now Tracnet has spent time in jail and paid hefty fines, huh? How much did you get, Tracnet?

    LOL....maybe a lil time in a South American jail would be a refreshing break........but I'm guessing NOT.

    Carlos has only punished me by taking away some of my toys. No jail cells or hefty fines.....not yet anyways.

    After all I have broken no laws or committed any crimes. I jump through loopholes and skirt gray areas.

    Jail is not our friend! And (knock on wood) I have NEVER had the unfortunate experience of being behind bars. Only those made of mahogany and lined with beer mugs and shot glasses. Heck I've been on top of a few of those and maybe under a few too.....lol
