Default Sidetone - Need android_secret_code to access menu

Ok, so I'm trying to adjust, or change the sidetone on the Fascinate.

I've discovered that there is a sidetone adjustment within the HwCodec.apk.

While viewing the AndroidManifest.xml inside of the HwCodec.apk I found this:

...
<intent-filter>
<action name="android.provider.Telephony.
SECRET_CODE">
<data scheme="android_secret_code"
host="0002*28346">
</data>
<data scheme="android_secret_code"
host="0002*28347">
</data>
...

From the research I've done, as long as we know the android_secret_code we can dial it and gain access to the HwCodec menu using its <code>.

In other Android devices, the android_secret_code has been *#*#<code>#*#*.
This appears to have changed with the Fascinate.

Is anyone able to look into this, or point me in the right direction?
Somewhere within the device there has to be the android_secret_code.

Sorry if my terminology is off, I don't do this stuff often. I just want to figure this thing out and try to remedy the excessive sidetone used on this device.

Thanks.

I found this from an outside source. I would post the url, but I can't cause I'm a noob to the forums and I need moderator approval. Credit goes to the author though.

Iíve looked deep into platform code. Hereís are the code from Phone.git


static boolean handleSecretCode(Context context, String input) {
// Secret codes are in the form *#*#<code>#*#*
int len = input.length();
if (len > 8 && input.startsWith("*#*#") && input.endsWith("#*#*")) {
Intent intent = new Intent(Intents.SECRET_CODE_ACTION,
Uri.parse("android_secret_code://" + input.substring(4, len - 4)));
context.sendBroadcast(intent);
return true;
}

return false;
}

Maybe this will help..

Negative, did not work.
That's the "normal" service code string- *#*#<code>#*#*.
The Fascinates had to of changed.
That's what I need to know.
Thanks though.
I will be checking out SGS Tools.

I checked out SGS Tools, but it appears to be for GSM based Galaxy S phones.

Does anyone have an idea where to look to the find new dialing code string for the Fascinate?
Like I posted, it was in the phone.git file on the Droid 1.
Is that the same as the Phone.apk file in the Fascinate?
I picked that AndroidManifest.xml apart trying to find it.

I might be way off on this.
Like I said, I don't have experience with programming, or anything like that.
I just really want this sidetone to be adjusted.

I created a new thread for the dialing string needed, but I will update this for future searches and such..

The dialing code used to gain access to the sidetone adjustment is:

*#0002*2836#

This will take you to the Codec Tuning Menu.

Proceed with caution. You don't have to ruin your phone.

Has anyone had any luck with the SideTone adjustments? I am on my second phone with the sidetone/mic feedback through the earpiece. I have accessed the hidden menu's but have no clue what values correspond to what. Has anyone been able to reduce the effect in the earpiece by adjusting values in the menu???
Thanks,

Over at android central they have a thread. So far people have been able to change the sidetone values, but it tends to drop sounds during calls. Also it resets the value on reboot.
