Siemens C35i service menu
please, check it and correct me:

Best informations about postlegendary x45 are on site

Two special "phone numbers" can to be generated individually for each concrete SIM card from its IMSI by special algorithm at request in Siemens AG ordinarily. If you don't want bother Siemens AG, you can try faster and easier way:

Download activation freeware from author's page - thanks to authors Greenstone & DarkBear.
If link above not works, you can download local copy.

If one from both generated numbers exists (with arbitrarily name) on last position of SIM card Phonebook (SM) during mobile switching-on, then Monitor menu can to be displayed from main level of standard menu pressing [*] or [#] .

One number enables limited level 2 of Monitor menu (gray background on schema) with two fixed items only:

Second number enables advanced level 1 of Monitor menu with one fixed item Configuration and 6 other items, which can to be enabled/disabled using Configuration menu.

Folowing items toggles items into/out from Monitor menu:

Following items toggles mode/functions on/off

Following item is best

Not tested by me, because I'm using legendary C35i only.
Audiomonitor (1/2)

Not sure.
(Device freezes or shutdowns in dedicated mode)
Audiomonitor (2/2)

Not sure
(Decadic digits are accepted, range of values not tested)

Firmvare modules info.
History (counters)

27 event counters, plus SExit info.
Resetable by user.

Handover failures count, ect.

Last unexpected shutdown info. Examples:
after <Delete>
(S)Exit: FFFF

Proportional font is used, but lines aren't terminated with CR (0x0D) characters. This is why text overflows from line to line in dependency on current values.
