Method 1

I am listing this solution first because users had less attention to this, yet it is the simplest and most effective one. App Disablingthere are a lot of users who have found a solution by deleting an app which may have been causing the MMI code error. However, this may not be the case for most people. To find out if there is any app that may have been causing you to get this error, you simply need to go into safe mode on your phone.In this guide, we will be using Samsung Galaxy.

What is Safe Mode?

Safe mode is very similar to a computer’s safe mode. It does not load any Apps. Basically, it temporarily disables all pre -installed applications and services that came with the phone.

 How to Enter Safe Mode

To enter safe mode and to find out if there’s a culprit app that may be interfering with the network operation of your phone, kindly follow the instruction below. App Like FX Camera is seen to be a treat in most cases. However, to enter safe mode:

  • Turn off your phone
  • Hold the Power button
  • While holding the power button keep tapping on the menu button; this is the button left of the home key.
  • You will be greeted with a safe mode logo at the bottom left of the screen.

Now it’s time to test .

  • Enter the same Prefix code you were trying before within the dialer and see if it works eg*135#
  • If it works, then there is an app which is causing the Invalid MMI Code error on your android phone.
  • Reboot your phone and remove any recently installed apps

 

Method 2

Another simple and effective way to fix Connection Problem or Invalid MMI Code on android phone is to add a comma at the end of the Prefix code.

For example:

If your Prefix code is *2904*7#, then adding the comma at the end would do just the trick which will look like *2904*7#,

OR

You can use the + symbol after * like *+2904*7#

By adding the comma it forces the operation to execute and overlook any error that’s in the way.
