It is *#27663368378#. You can see this code in my app Shortcut Master --> 'Secret Code Explorer' menu.

This code can only be launched with ROOT permission. I will add the ability to launch this code with root permission in the next release of Shortcut Master app.

Hi, I have updated Shortcut Master to v1.1.0.

I have added 'Launch Method 0' for secret codes. This method allows you to launch secret code with ROOT permission. This way you can launch almost ALL secret codes available for your device, that may have been prohibited due to security policy by Samsung.

Now you can open 'Secret Code Explorer' menu, scroll down to 27663368378 and launch it (root is required).

I still can't get this to work on my Verizon S5 (SM-G900V - v4.4.2 - G900VVRU1ANCG). I can get into this menu but I dont know where to navigate to open that dialog. I have tried manually searching for that shortcut "Servicemode" and "service mode" and none of those open that dialog.

Thanks,
Pish

I found it but now there is another problem.

If you look for code 2263 and use root privileges (method 0) to open it you get the menu. Options are as follows:

1 - Automatic
2 - WCDMA Band Preference
3 - GSM Band Preference
4 - LTE Band Preference
5 - WCDMA/GSM Mode Only
6 - LTE/WCDMA Mode Only
7 - LTE/GSM Mode Only


If I choose anything other than an LTE mode, I get an icon (where the reception icon is) with a circle with a forward slash in it (meaning no service). Perhaps there is something more to set the Verizon S5 in CDMA only mode? I know on my Motorola Razr Maxx HD there was an option to CDMA auto (PRL). Perhaps it doesn't have the Preferred Roaming List (PRL)? I have run the *228 but it gives me a message: Sim Card: A Version Wireless SIM card has been activated your service and updated your phone's roaming capabilities ...

Info 2 FOUND IT.

I found it! I am now able to toggle 3g mode manually using my Verizon S5 thanks to Root and "Shortcut Master" app.

search for "Radio"

The Java package is at: com.android.settings.RadioInfo

Once here it is like pressing the old *#*#4636#*#* on other phones such as my old Motorola Razr Maxx HD.

After you launch the RadioInfo package you can then choose which radio you want to use. I use "CDMA auto (PRL)" and it works perfectly.

Now to test and see how battery life is now in troubled 4G area's by forcing 3G.

For reference of an easier way to pull up this radio selection menu via another app (still requires root): Advanced Signal Status https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....cc.signalinfo
Click on Additional Info at the bottom of the app, grant root permission, then select device info.

Great Thanks! The first time I tried to run, it crashed and didn't ask me for root privileges. 2nd time worked fine.
