Hidden Huawei Phone settings you must know about

Hidden Huawei Phone settings you must know about

Huawei has been a very important smartphone brand, so it is logical that there are many mobile phones of this brand still active today. Today we tell you what these secret codes are that you can use in these types of phones to squeeze them to the fullest.


Next, we collect some hidden settings that we can use on a Huawei phone. Thanks to them we have access to additional functions, which otherwise we could not use on the device. These settings are usually available on most of the brand’s phones.

When using these settings, which we have access to through codes in the phone app, it is important to use the Huawei phone app. If you use a different one (such as the Google phone app), it is possible that when you enter the code it will not work, but if you do it in the native phone app then it will work. It doesn’t matter if you have another app as the default for calls.

Project Menu

Android Project Menu

Project Menu is an advanced menu for Huawei phones, where we have access to a series of important data about the phone, in addition to giving us access to some advanced functions. From this menu we can check if the phone is free, format the phone, change the type of connection, see the status and temperature of the battery or update with a file from a microSD card. Advanced functions that for some users may be of interest.

As this is an advanced menu, it is important to be careful when using it. These are functions that have important consequences on the phone, such as a factory reset, for example. So it is not a menu in which to fiddle without knowing very well what to do. The way to access it is:

  • Open the phone app.
  • Enter the code *#*#2846579#*#* in the.
  • A menu opens.
  • Explore the menu options.

See the entire calendar

Huawei phones, a large part of them at least, have a hidden menu where we can see all the calendar events at the same time. It is a great help in case we have many events in said calendar, since it allows us to have a good control and overview of it directly, without having to go to the application of the calendar itself.

By using this hidden menu, the system will show us all the events that are stored in the calendar. In addition, it will show us these differentiated events depending on the type and group (meetings, birthdays, holidays, etc.). So it is easy to differentiate events. It can be viewed this way:

  • Open the phone app on Huawei
  • Enter the code *#*#225#*#*
  • See the calendar.

View phone IMEI

Knowing the IMEI of the mobile is something important, for which there are many different ways. One of them is to use a hidden code or setting on the phone, which is also possible on Huawei phones. It can be helpful at times when you need to use this number, being able to access it in a matter of a few seconds. This method usually works on practically all Huawei phones, so you shouldn’t have a problem:

  • Open the phone app.
  • Enter the code *#06#
  • Check the IMEI.

FCM diagnosis

FCM is the acronym for Firebase Cloud Messaging, which is the system in charge of sending push notifications and messages to the phone. Thanks to this system we can receive messages from applications such as WhatsApp on the phone. Huawei devices allow access to data about this type of notifications in a hidden menu, in addition to being able to see the most recent messages received through any of these applications.

  1. Open the phone app.
  2. Put the code *#*#426#*#* in it.
  3. Access the menu and if there are new messages you can see them there.

Phone information

This feature is more of a shortcut than a hidden phone setting. If we need to go to the Information section of the phone, which is within the settings and means that we have to make several keystrokes within said menu, in Huawei we can go to this section directly by means of a code. So for many users it can be a way to access more quickly, saving time in this way. The steps are:

  1. Open the phone app.
  2. Enter the code *#*#0000#*#*
  3. Obtain or check the data you wanted.

If you have found them interesting, we recommend that you see other secret codes on Android, the one that allows you to check the battery status or those that can be used in Spotify.
