If all you see is *#06# in your dialer, then you are safe. If you were to press CALL from there, you should get your carrier message saying the number you dialed is invalid.
Mine flashes that code real quick and then shows nothing. I'm thinking I'm in the clear. And I must say these mobile hacks are always some of the most interesting. ;-)
