Last week we already uncovered how to easy find the Mac Address on the Samsung Focus and Samsung Omnia 7 Devices. Today we found out out to unveil the Mac address on the LG Optimus 7 and the LG Quantum.

A quote from our earlier article explains a little bit more about why it is important to have access to the WIFI Mac Address on your mobile device.

Many companies apply mac filtering for giving access to mobile devices on their network. For the strangest thing in the newly released Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating system you can get this mac address directly from the phone as a consumer. The hard way is to connect to a visible network and have an administrator look at the back end of this network to see who is connecting/disconnecting to determine which Mac Address is doing this.

Can you imagine this happening in a big company. Even if the network is visible you still need to give the network administrator your mac address to give you permission to be on that visible network.

A new quick solution has appeared in the Windows Phone 7 Answers forum for the Samsung Focus. I have tried it on mine, and it works like a charm.

Steps to discover your Mac Address on the LG Optimus 7 and the LG Quantum Windows Phone 7

  1. Open up the dialer on your LG
  2. type in ” ##634#
  3. in the MFG screen type in ” 277634#*#
  4. go to Engineer Menu
  5. Open Device Test
  6. Open WiFi Test
  7. Open Net.Info and your Mac Address will be visible
  8. Warning; Don’t change anything to the settings you will see in these menu’s as you can change thing that can damage your phone internally.

As of 12/16/10 there is no option for “wifi test” under “device test”. I am amazed that the mac address is not on the box. Thanks anyway.
