I've looked around several different forums, and maybe I missed a more relevant thread, but I wanted to start a conversation about the different menus available for Samsung phones.Although, I can't say this for sure, I believe that the method to getting into different menus is going to be the same across a variety of Samsung phones.This all started because my phone's DUN bluetooth profile was locked and I wanted to unlock it. My provider is US Cellular, who says they don't support tethering to PCs / handhelds, but I was fairly sure that as long as I got the settings right, I could get my phone to act as a gateway to the internet. Anyway, that's another conversation.

My phone: Samsung SCH-R610
Provider: US Cellular
What I found:
1. MSL / service programming code - was able to dig this out of the file nvm vm
vm_security (nvm_0002 did not exist for me). I used BitPim for this.
2. press # in the settings menu and used the code 000000 to get to a "System Info" menu. I Used the "Port Map" option to turn on the DUN profile (also set the Perf Mode to CDMA only mode because of something I read on a different site. I think that probably means the transfer speeds are going to be slower, but a data call did work. I don't really know what the reason might be for this, however)
3. from the "System Info" menu (see #2), press #. The phone asked for a 10-digit code, but I have not figured out what this code is. (my phone # doesn't work. The number under my PPP username (IMSI?), see #5 doesn't work, all 0s, all 1s also didn't work)
4. press * in the settings menu and enter the MSL / service programming code to get to the "Service Programming" menu
5. press * in the easyedge menu and enter the MSL / service programming code to get to the "Brew Info" menu. This is where I found the PPP authentication info. Surprisingly, the username was NOT [myCellPhoneNumber]@uscc.net, although it was a 10-digit string. QPST Service Programming reports this 10-digit string as my IMSI_S
6. press * in the messages menu. The phone then asks for a "Lock Code". It's 6-digits long and my MSL doesn't work here, neither does 000000, nor 111111.So, that's what I've got so far. If anyone can shed some light on #6 and #3, that'd be great.
