Android: How to force check for updates to your phone

If you want to force your Android phone to check for updates (ROM updates, not App updates which updates through Market), here is a little trick for you:

First, you could try checking for updates from the *Settings menu -> About -> Updates
(May vary depending on your model).

If that did not work, you could try this trick:

Open your phones dialer, type ##2432546##

(Or  ##checkin## if you like). Just as if you were going to call a number.

Your phone should now check for updates to your ROM.

Note: This does not work on every model though.

Please post in the comments if you succeed!
