Accessing the P1i Hidden Services Menu

The service menus on the P1i allow the user to see information about their phone, diagnostic tests for different features, and formatting the internal disk.

To be specific, here are all the options that are included:

  • Services information
    • Model information – what model your phone is (mine just says P1i)
    • Software information – PDA, phone, and Bluetooth software version, and CDA version
    • Hardware information – IMEI number
    • SIM locks – I’m guessing this tells you whether your phone is locked or unlocked (reasonable assumption)
    • Configuration – Speech codec rate, and GSM bands
  • Services tests
    • Display – shows abunch of weird lines and colors to see if colors look right I guess
    • Camera – shows an image of the front and rear camera
    • Touchscreen – gives a blank drawing canvas to test the stylus
    • Illumination – screen brightness
    • LED’s – lights up the light near the phone charger port red and green
    • Keyboard – lets you type different keys and reads your input
    • Vibrator – vibrates the phone letting you know that function still works
    • Speakers – makes sounds with the front and rear speakers
    • Microphone – records sounds
    • FM radio – didn’t try this one, since I didn’t have my handsfree with me
    • Memory Stick – tells you if its attached
  • Format internal disk – it is what it says
