Blackberry Secret Codes

Blackberry secret codes for hidden menus work a bit differently to all other manufacturers since you don't use the *#code# sequence but rather activate most of the codes by holding the ALT key! As always it is right to point out that these are not some magic Blackberry hacks just the codes to access the hidden menu systems which people commonly refer to as the Blackberry secret codes! To use these codes you just have to enter the key sequence as specified!
(PS - these are for BlackBerry devices prior to bb os10!) Hidden Functions (HOLD ALT)

ALT+NMLL          Changes the signal meter from the standard bars to a decibel display, entering the code again will revert back to the bars
ALT+LSHIFT+H   The Techinical information menu, if you are trying to get support or help you will probably need the information displayed here
ALT+VALD           Validates the address book, can only be used in the address book
ALT+RBLD            Forces the address book to rebuild, can only be used in the address book
*#06#   Displays the IMEI (home screen)
ALT+RBVS           Used in the browser to view the page source code, useful if you are developing applications
ALT+LGLG           Displays the devices event log, if you are struggling to get BES/BIS working the information here can be very useful
