After all of 30 seconds on Google, I found a code which is supposed to tell you what your MAC is: *#62209526#

Yep thats the code to enter on the keypad, alternatively there are a couple of utilities that do the job for you.

Still don not understrand why people bother with MAC address filtering though as its a complete waste of time and adds nothing to the security of the network - unless its mandated by some inane corporate policy.

Please suggest any improvements or report problems / abuse to
