Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830: View Your MAC Address CodeUnit 06 JUL 2011

The Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is a nice mid-range Android phone running 2.2 Froyo with Touchwiz 3.0 on top. Sometimes it is useful to know what your device’s MAC address is and to locate it on the phone isn’t always that intuitive.

First, select the Settings application from the main menu and once loaded, select the Wireless and networks menu option. Once loaded, enter the Wi-Fi settings menu option. The trick now is to hit the menu button, which will bring up a new contextual menu with one of the options being Advanced. Click on Advanced and the new screen will finally read return your MAC address to you.

And now you know.

    Thanks for you help in finding my Mac address; very good clear site and therefore very helpful!  Vodaphone could not help even though they sell the ‘Phone!

    • Excellent, glad I could assist!

      • Hey Craig – any idea when Gingerbread will be coming to the Ace in SA? (we are with NashuaMobile/MTN)

        • absolutely no idea, but from what i’ve heard, it isn’t particularly difficult to root the phone and do the upgrade yourself (but void the warranty in the process!)
