    4. Hello Shravan

      First of all thank you very much for all this help to the people and making them smile for free. You are earning great Karma.

      Sorry for posting this at wrong place, but due to slow Internet I thought to write my question down in reply section, knowing that it is inappropriate.

      Now coming to my point, I have Samsung s3 neo phone and I tried second method but it seem very complicated to me. The reason is when I downloaded the app, I don’t see three vertices dots. But when I open the manu button by tapping and holding on it in the app. In this menu it doesn’t have Service menu or Engineering Mode. It has search option in menu and while searching from the apps I could not found any of those two options.

      Talking about the code I tried the code from dial pad and nothing happens.

      I can provide you the screen shots if that can help you for me.

      I would appreciate your reply to me via email for quick solution. My email address is
