I'm not responsible for what might happen on your phone if you choose to dial any of these!

These are the codes that work on the standard phone dialler app on the Orange San Francisco, but I'm pretty sure they'll be almost identical on other models that we collectively know as "ZTE Blade". Known small differences (in texts) are down to whether the firmware expects to be running on an OLED or TFT display, and whether you've deleted seemingly unused apps like ChiperTest.apk, fcctest.apk and QcNvTest.apk. Most are prefixed with "*983*", which is "*ZTE*" in phone letters -- I've added a mnemonic for the other part where I think it's obvious (feel free to suggest better ones!).

"Automatic Inspection" runs through the basic tests automatically (usually you need press a button to move on to the next bit -- don't get thrown by any blank colour test screens!). There are a number of interesting items for developers, with hardware info and other goodies. If any of the descriptions don't make the function obvious then it's either poorly written or I don't know exactly what it does (I'll happily update this if others can explain better).

If the code has been recognised by the dialler then it will react immediately when you enter the final "#". If nothing happens when you've done that, don't press Dial!

Edit: on the ROMs based on the Japanese 2.2 you need to put the phone into "Engineering Mode" first, by dialling *ZTE*OPENEM# (*983*673636#) -- this action will be confirmed by a quick pop-up. To close this mode, dial *ZTE*CLOSEEM# (*983*2567336#) -- this then prompts whether you want to do a Factory Reset, which you do not have to do (you can simply Back away from this screen).

Check the build number in Settings>About Phone. AMOLED ends in 05, LCD ends in 08. IIRC all white SF models are 08 and most grey are 05 (unless its a newer unit which will likely be 08).

Mine is 01. What that means?
Looking at the screen characteristics it seems like LCD.

Really nice. Works on Boost Mobile Warp Sync N9515.

Would you happen to have a code that forces prompt for unlock? (Changing sim cards doesn't trigger anything)

No Boost Mobile ZTE Warp Sync N9515 Unlock Screen

I think unlocking the Boost Mobile is a lost cause. I've tried several other sims and the only codes I've found to show the unlock menu don't work:

1) Alright then please remove the SIM card and try this code ###825*09#,
2) Got the prompt for code? Please enter the code you received,
3) Failed above, try *983*8284# to access the Unlock Menu,
4) Failed above, finally try *983*865625# to access the Unlock Menu.
