    I have a motorolla atrix running android version 2.3.5 and I have a problem. Everytime I try to run a MMI code, say *100# , my phone calls it like I'm dialing a regular number. It doesn't run the code so a menu or something pops up, it just calls it. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Have you had the problem with only this phone? Were you able to use codes with a previous Android phone?

    Are you sure your provider supports the codes you are trying to use? What is the *100# supposed to do, check your balance or something?

    Try *+100#

    Yes, I had a samsung galaxy gio before this and no problems on that. I've taken my sim out and checked on other phones including a nokia, a htc wildfire and a samsung galaxy Y. The code works on them so I'm sure there's nothing wrong with that. *100# along with checking my balance also lets me do other things, like setting up internet on my phone, or subscribing to packages among other things. Its basically an accessway to all the services provided by my telecom company.

    I also tried with other sim cards from different service providers in my phone to make sure it wasn't just an incompatibility problem between my phone and this particular provider, but same results.


    I tried *+100# as well. Same result, my phone called it.

    May be a limitation of that particular version of the Android OS. Any upgrade or downgrade available to you?

    No upgrades, not sure if it's advisable to downgrade my phone? Will rooting it help?

    Sorry, no idea about rooting helping.

    From what I have been seeing this MMI issue has existed since the first Android OS and is still happening. It almost seems Google has no idea what is causing it nor how to fix it. They appear to be strangely mute about it.

    Did you try the "+" suggestion in post #2?
