Secret Codes for Motorola Phones

Last night I was looking for a secret code to factory reset my Motorola phone and came across some pretty valuable secret codes for other older Motorola phones which may be helpful to you if you have the following Motorola phones and are still using them. These codes have not been tested by myself, as I obviously do not have all of these phones, but if you are in a jam, its worth a try.
