Hidden Menus are secret dialer codes — numerical and special characters such as * and # — that when dialed guarantee access to hidden information in a phone.
iOS Phones have several hidden dialer codes. The dialer codes also referred to as shortcodes, star codes, or pound codes, and they combine different technologies and protocols. These include Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD), manufacturer-defined MMI (man-machine interface), and supplementary service (SS) codes.
