Samsung Focus tip–Easily find you MAC address

focus2It seems the current crop of Windows Phone 7 devices are unexpectedly very different.

On Windows Phone 7 there is no default way of seeing your MAC address.  That is, of course, unless you have a Samsung Focus, in which case, with a few key presses, it is pretty easy enough.

To find your address, the procedure is as follows:

–Go to the Phone section (as if you were going to make a call)

–enter ##634# and select "Call" (might have been ##643#)

–It did not call anything. There should now be a "Diagnosis" option in your app list

–Go to Diagnosis and a keypad comes up and enter *#1234#

–It should bring up a menu that includes the WiFi Mac Address.

Thanks hAl for the tip.
