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.
Actually, your phone only checks the server once per day and if your phone is asleep or you do not notice, you will be passed up for the update on that day. Verizon sends the update out at all hours, so if you want the update, you are gonna have to put in that code about every five minutes. They send during a five minute window.

Kidding! I can see people typing that in during the wee hours.
