Quick Tip: Find your Windows Phone Wifi MAC

by jason8. April 2011 12:50

I recently had to find the mac address of the Windows Phone I was using for a demo. I needed to connect to Wifi and the venue filtered connections by MAC.

Here are the steps to make it happen:

  1. Open the Phone app and dial ##634#
  2. Hit the "Call" button and a "Diagnosis" app will open
  3. In the "Diagnosis" app, dial *#1234# and a "Version" screen will be shown.
  4. There's your Wi-Fi MAC address at the bottom of the screen. Cool, eh?

By the way, I should mention, this is a "Works on my phone" type of thing. I have tested it on a Samsung Focus.

      Jason Williams is a .NET developer in Lincoln, Nebraska.

      The name "Centrolutions" came out of a long search for a domain name. The goal was to create a name that conveyed an ideology of writing software centered (Centr--) on a solution (--olutions) for a particular problem. In other words, it was the only name in a long list that wasn't already registered on the internet.
