    Met a chick last night who was acting totally drunk then wrote her number on my phone following by an MMI sequence code starting with #. A message came up saying "Mmi code starting" and then "Sim card updated". My phone is working normally, but What could have been the reason behind all this? please help.....

    Welcome to

    Sounds like she hit some random combination of codese starting with # that caused something to be sent to the carrier. Hard to tell exactly what happened without more detail. Here is more info on mmi codes: YouMail - Help Center

    Thanks for your reply.
    I'm pretty sure she did it on purpose, and few minutes later i discovered she did the same thing with another guy but he didn't notice. There must be some catch behind it. Is it possible to steal credit with an MMI code? Im worried as im on a pay monthly plan

    sounds like her intentions were for hacking purposes or something worse, if acting drunk and doing the same thing to 2 phones.... that's not random....

    I'd hard-reset the phone if I were you; just in case. Maybe even re-flash the firmware. And don't let anyone touch it in future. What you allowed her to do is no different to allowing a stranger to touch your desktop PC.

    codes starting with # are used to deactivate services
    codes starting with * are used to activate services

    codes starting with ## are used to deregister and deactivate services
    codes starting with ** are used to register activate services

    codes starting with *# are used for phone status /information .

    you will need to contact your service provider and check what have you deactivated .Flashing phone wont help .Changing sim card will help.

    Is there any way I can get to see all the codes? Maybe I remember what she pressed, my Service provider customer care is totally naive... :/

    GSM Suffixes

    10 All types of cellphone services
    11 Speech service
    12 Data service
    16 Short message service (SMS)
    18 All data services without SMS
    19 All cellphone services without SMS
    25 Asynchronous point-to-point connections including PAD's (all asynchronous data services

    To the above codes suffixes before # separated by a * can be added to affect a specific service

    e.g 21 is used to divert calls unconditionally'
    *21*number*16# will divert the sms

    PLUS your carrier can define specific codes for their own purpose for various services.Those codes will be different and known only to your carriers.
    THESE codes are only for GSM .

    Hope this helps .

    Dear Karandpr, thanks for your help

    I have tried every code listed there, but none of them seem to get the same message "Sim card updated" like i got that night when she did it, and besides the code was written after the number not before, like most of these codes.
    I have no clue
    but thanks again

    I'd advise you take your phone to your carrier store and let them look it over and see if there's any issues.

    W/o the prefixes,Global suffixes dont work.
    use *# codes to check the status of every service .Maybe you will see her number .

    Best thing .Go to your carrier .Replace the SIM card .
    Dont go near drunk girls anytime soon.
