The Motorola Motofone accepts many options which are not directly available from the standard menu. These codes are generally used to configure more advanced options.
The codes described here have a three asterisk prefix (***) and an asterisk suffix followed by the up action key ( *↑ ) on the top left of the keypad.
There are also (unrelated) codes for phone information details (
* * 9 9 9 9 * ↑) and
