Very Easy : Check Mobile Radiation level by dial code
Category : Blog
This is probably my favorite method and the one I use all the time to check the SAR rating of someone’s phone if I’m just out and about and they are curious. The USSD sometimes referred to as the “Quick Code” is a protocol required by all GSM phones, that communicates certain device information about your specific phone, to the service provider (such as AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc.)
There is a ton of information, but part of that information is information about the Radio Frequency Radiation exposure levels of your phone, including the SAR rating.
To use this method, just follow these simple steps:
- Open up your phone like you’re about to make a phone call.
- Dial exactly this: *#07#
- Press send as if you’re about to call that number, and voila, you’ll be presented with some information.
The next screen that you see really depends on the brand of your phone. Apple, for example, jumps you over to a portion of the settings that relays this information. At the bottom of that screen, there is a section called “RF Exposure.” At the bottom of that section, there will be a link for your exact phone model that will give you the SAR value.
Some other phone manufacturers will just list the SAR value when you type in the code, so go ahead and give it a try!
