Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-T999 stock supported USSD codes

There may have been a time when you called in to get support on your phone and they had you type in some random numbers under your phone to set something up. These codes are called USSD and there are a number of them that developers use to troubleshoot problems and configure devices without having to contact the cell company for support. Below is a list of the known supported codes.

This entire post is copied from an XDA thread. I posted this strictly for information and educational purposes only. Use at your own risk.

If you post them I will update this with a list of all the ones that work.
Some codes from i9300 do not work. Don’t post any not tested or not marked as dangerous.
Most of the Android secret codes only work on Samsung stock rom, the dialer recognizes the
code when entered and you don’t have to hit send. Codes work on ICS and JB dialers, but
most are not built into CM10 or AOSP
(if you erased any of the stock /system/app/*test*.apk obviously they won’t launch)

[UPDATE — There is some hysteria on the interwebs about exploits that can reset your S3.
All that is happening is certain tel: links in a browser or NFC are loading numbers into the dialer
for you. When any Android Secret code listed below is entered into the dialer it launches
the specific .apk or function (like reboot or even factory reset). You can install a 3rd party
dialer and set that as the default and avoid this. The codes do nothing in most non-stock
dialers. They also are present on almost every phone, not just S3]
