So I just tried it again and will describe exactly what happens on my phone...

Open dialer> *#*#2432546#*#*>number disappears from dialer>triangle with ! appears in notification bar>drag down and it says "checkin result, success.

If you aren't in the queue to get an update, nothing will happen... it's just a way to force your phone to check in to the server for often than it does automatically.
