Are you using a Nokia mobile handset from very long time? If yes, then how many Nokia shortcut codes you know?

Like your network service providers, Nokia also offers tentative shortcut codes that help to know the particular information about your handset or to take advantage of some of its amazing features. I guess you know some of the shortcut codes already but there are so many codes you might not be aware of. Here TechPuffs has summarized almost all of the Nokia shortcut codes and their corresponding functions. Some of these shortcuts provided here won’t work with certain Nokia handset models and when you use them a message is displayed saying “request not completed” but it doesn’t mean that they don’t exist.
