    Default Side affects after using "delete dumpstate/ logcat"?

    Are there any side affects for using *#9900# and selecting the option "delete dumpstate/ logcat"?I heard that it might delete also the phone internet browser bookmarks?

    There should be no reason do to that - I'm not sure if it will delete your bookmarks, but there shouldn't be any reason why you need to do that.

    Because I'm running out of internal memory.
    It should clean all system logs.

    You might be better off clearing cache in recovery.

    What happens to the call logs and message logs, are they intact after deleting dumpstate/logcat?

    I had none. Everything was intact, all my messages, contacts. None for now.

    Same for me with my S2 and Note 2 - no loss of any useable data that I can see. All messages, contacts, emails, apps all there still
