last time i checked it was only illegal if you took action on something said in the conversation. so if someone said they were going to knock over a bank it would be illegal to call the police and tell the about it.

I just saw a commercial on TV for a "pre-programmed" scanner that you can use "to listen in on cordless phone calls", and "catch up on all the gossip in your neighborhood" and "check up on your spouse". And if you order now, you can get information on other frequencies you can listen to on your new scanner. It's pre-programmed so it scans cordless phones. That's not hard to do, but I thought it was illegal to adveritise that, and I KNOW that it's illegal to do it, unless one party knows. Oh well....I'll stop typing now, I'm off to shop at Bell Atlantic. They're open at 12:08 am, right?

Just a thought, but I remember a while ago I was in the market for a payphone (so to speak)... I went to a local construction yard and there was one mounted to a piece of plywood on the back of a construction trailer. Maybe if you checked out some local construction sites... There's a lot of development around here, so I guess I'm lucky. You can always do what my friend did and steal those sets of two they have outside every wawa nationwide. (Sorry about the last post, I hit the wrong numbers for the colors I guess =P)

I've found some that give the "if you'd like to make a call" crap after you dial one, some that ask for a quarter, and one or two that just go dead.

TOPIC - the payphone coin return level phenomenon
01/20/99 16:48:05 - MESSAGE #429

Well, in New City, NY, there is an A&P with two payphones next to each other. I was going to call my friend MatriX when all of a sudden... *Bzzzz*, so I figured, "Shit, payphone might be broken." So I hung up and listened for dialtone again, but alas, more buzzing, I dropped the handset and picked it up again, only to hear a clear dialtone. I found quickly that if you pulled the handset cord tight, you could get a dial tone, then let the cord get a small amount of slack, and the buzzing would come back. Hmm... So I tried dialing MatriX's number, while the phone was making the buzzing, and even with all of the interference, the call connected, so I straightened out the cord again, and talked to MatriX for three minutes, then I heard a click, then another click, then finally it clicked again and hung up. So I repeated this, and it connected, and I was in awe.

Now that I reflect on it, it was most likely that a frayed wire in the handset cable, and it was coming in contact with either the cable jacket or the armor cable inside, causing it to connect to ground. Oddly enough, after a while (a few months) of using it, I got bored with it, so I called up Bell Atlantic repair, and I told them about it, and I gave them my diagnosis, they said "Okay, we'll have a technician out there on Monday, probably later in the day." So I waited around all day... no technician... I called back the next day, new representative, same response, I waited, no technician. So now I just kind of said fuck it, and I just steal the shit out of it, maybe _THAT_ will get their attention. It's also handy-dandy for prank calls, since I don't even have to pay my hard earned blood money to harass someone. I've also really annoyed people that need to use the phone by yanking on the handset cable while they're on the phone, then they don't know how to make the buzzing go away, so they look at me, hang up, and say "dickhead" or something to that effect.

Ha. Stupid american pigs.

a similar phenomenon occured at my local mall... there was this one phone where you'd depress the lever, wait for the static to kick in, then dial and it was free. seems to work only for local calls..... maybe the call doesn't supervise (i.e. doesn't get billed?) either way, this can be reproduced. simply crack open the handset cable and ground one of the white wires (you'll get this to work half of the time because there are two white wires) then the static will kick in, at which point you make your call. bell actually must have came out and fixed that particular phone becasue it isn't "special" anymore.... anyone know the technical reasoning behind this?

When a fone's set up to not take incoming callz, I think that's it, there sure isn't any way to call from outside and change it!! Your only hope is to get inside and reprogram the fone, or social engineer someone to do it for you, such as, call one of their other #'s and say you're from a utility and this fone has to be able to get incoming callz for in case of an emergency or something like that.

As for pooping on a payfone hey, trailer-trash can poop on anything, you see, hicks learn to poop off of the back of a moving rusty ol' pickup truck and poop in an ol' wooden outhouse, so I don't see where sitting on the little shelf of a payfone or on top with your ass bare in the wind would challenge your average hick at all!

OK, they're putting in new payfones at the Circle-K across the street, and I've gotten to watch some of the assembly, and all I can say is that those things ARE fortresses!!

There's an AC socket in the base, but once the fone's assembled you'd have to use and axe to get at it. The pin method might be an interesting way to get calls, though, just use a little batt-powered Dremel type tool to drill a hole in the metal casing on the cord or in a nondescript place in the handset and then easily "pin" calls......

On this phone instead of boxing a call i wanted to see more and try some shit out and noticed that when u put money in u will not hear the tones..[duh] but then u will hear them dial it right after . so then i tried boxing a call after i put the money in and said it needed more but this did not work. so then i tried the paper clip method of gettin local calls..this kind of worked took me 3 tries. just thought id tell ya all this i will keep updates if i find anything new.

Hey Tofu, my first question is under what RBOC is this happening? Next, does that phone accept incoming calls? Finally, is it a COCOT or a bell phone?

If you are in Bell Atlantic (or old NYNEX) territory, you are at a bell phone, and the phone does not accept incoming calls (or even if it does), one possible explanation of this is that the phone you are using is trying to hang up (by using it's capacitor discharge 4 second timer), but your CO is trying to hold the call open for use of a custom calling feature. Since the phone doesn't have any custom calling features, it's not supplying you with a stutter dial tone (for three way calling, et al). The CO recognizes the on-hook conditions, and sends the grounded pulse to dump the coin bin. You get your coin back, and the CO is waiting for you to start your (non-existent) custom calling feature.

For all you know, the local assignment office may have fucked up and put three way calling on that line, and since everyone knows that you can't use three way while the other phone is ringing, it just holds the call.

To test out if your CO is giving everyone pay per use three way (in BA/NYNEX area _only_), try to hang up on a disconnected number by hitting "flash". If it's holding your call, congratulations, your local COT got off his lazy ass and updated the configuration files for the switch.

Try clicking the switch hook of the phone after the called party answers. Tell me what happens.

I don't know for sure, Highlander, speaking as an American who's never been there but read a little on fone sys's, I'd say that there's actually a chance that the old-fashioned 2600 Hz blue box might work on your phones. In the USA, our military actually uses older tech in a lot of places, and other countries have often "inherited" our older technology too. Of course, what often also happens is developing countries sometime have newly acquired universal phone service, and have the latest digital highly secure stuff! If you're on the Net, why not try doing an AltaVista search on Colombian Payphones or something? I've found all kinds of info by doing this, finding info that the owners of the fones don't even know.

There are COCOTS all over this town, and they react very pissily to being ANI'd. They basically say Fuck You in a number of different COCOT ways, from giving you back a beeping dialtone to asking for $1 then saying that # can't be dialed. Does anyone know how to find the # to a COCOT ( to reprogram them through their little modems, hehe )? I have it in for the little bastards.......

OK, I've never heard of that b4, but I found out this wierd Pizzafone I can dial into has an interface for PAD (Packer Assembler/Disassembler) commands, I found some stuff on the Net from Silicon Graphics about it (wow) and I want to find out how to dial out like from a VMB and how to explore whatever network is on this, and basically dick with 'em - it's the only bookstore I've been in where the people are so dumbass they probably don't read!

All I can say is, if you find a COCOT-type fone or a COCOT, heck, anything that's aftermarket and looks programmable, ANI that bitch and then dial in with a modem and see if you get into it. It's so mysterious and frustrating what h/p person can resist?

Now that I have that done with, let me get with the post:

I was out in my usual hangout (big ass 2-story Target) and well, I needed to make a phone call. Being stupid and not using the phones inside Target, I walked across the street to use the payphone. Anyways, I pop in the change (yes, change..) and I dial up my friend. Well, hes not home so I hang up to get my change back. Well, I push down on the hanger thing momentarily, hear change fall out, let go of ringer, then Im about to put my change back in to make another call when, whats this? Its still ringing! Now, this confused me, so I decided it was just fucked up. Well, to confirm my suspicions, I try it again, to myother friend (I actually have more than 1!) Well, I put in change, let it ring, hang up, let change fall, listen again, but this time my friend answers! Yay! Well, free call, didnt have to use anything, it was cool, and thats todays short story. Oh, anyone know why it did this by chance?

Does anyone out there use a clear box? It's for post pay phones. I tried to make one today and when I tried it out of course it didn't work. I made it out of a radio shack "telephone amplifier" I took the speaker and mic thing off and connected two mic jacks. then plugged a mic into one and the radio shack telephone suction cup pick-up thing into the other.

I live in a small hick town with only post-payfones and 2 cocots. so it would really help if someone knows if a clear box still works. The site below has a text file on the clear box.

TOPIC - Airfones
DATE - 10/06/98 22:27:41
FROM - In Phase

Here is what happened when using the Airfone on United Airlines.
I used the "Airfone" on the plane to call a 1-800 ANI number
(after first using my AT&T calling card) and got these results:

Flying Denver to San Francisco: 303-446-9458
Flying San Francisco to Hong Kong: 707-441-1178
(the instructions said the calls only work while the plane is within 30 miles or so of the coast, so I had to call quick before the plane got too far out!)

Back on the ground, in my hotel, I tried calling the ANI number again, this time
FIRST calling AT&T's "USADirect" number and entering my calling card #.

from Penang, Malaysia: 203-782-9327
from Singapore: (same as above)

On another trip-
From the Heathrow Airport, London: 904-440-0011

Somewhere here I have a list of the "USA Direct" numbers. These are numbers that are usually toll-free from the country you are in, and connect to the U.S, so you can use an English speaking automated system, or an English speaking operator to connect your call TO the US from the country where you are.

Anyhow..those numbers would help.

A few years ago I was on a business trip. The company I worked for provided an AT&T calling card, so I could both call back to work to talk to my boss or whoever, and also to make calls to home (your wife, girlfriend, whatever).

So, while on the plane, I used the Airphone to dial a 1-800 ANI number, and got the port number the Airphone links to on the ground!

I might post those if anybody wants them.

TOPIC - GTE Airfone
DATE - 10/05/98 20:44:43
FROM - Tofu 626

Well, I was just wondering if anyone had any info on those GTE Airphones that most planes are using now. I'm usually traveling, not for business but for pleasure and wouldn't mind screwing around with those things. ALl I can tell so far is they are WAY too expensive, even 888 or 800 numbers cost like $2.50 a minute or whatever. The only trick I've learned so far is that since you have to place the phone back in its holster to reset the Credit or Calling card info you set it at when swiping your card through, what you do is after the guy next to you hangs up the phone, before he can put it away, take it from him and say you need to make a call also. Since most people dont understand it has to be placed back into the holster area and not just turned off to reset, they'll just hand it to you. thats when you look like you are typing in fancy "Calling Verification(hehe)" numbers r just take out your credit card or other magnetic stripped card and swipe it through that baby upside down so the guy next to you thinks you're getting billed for all those 900 numbers or the call you make to your best friend in Zimbabwe..anyways, if anyones got more info on these lil' marvels of air commuter traffic, lemme know.

Oh and by the way, when traveling and the guy who walks ahead of you drops his irst class seat reciet, pick it up...its your proof you just payed for that privelege to sit there..bye bye Mr. Corporate Executive >=D have fun...

My friend's dad used to work for bell and he likes to tell stories about it now that he's retired.

He welded a peice of metal to the end of the gun barrel to protect him from shrapnel. Then he punched a hole in the end for a bullet to pass through. He would shoot out the lock then use some tool to open the fone. I don't know what kind of tool but it wasn't specially made or n-e thing. Before you go out and do this yourself you should know that he was caught when the gun slipped because he wasn't holding it tight against the fone and the shrapnel hit him.

Any way he would shoot out the lock and then he just used a tool to open it. I don't know what the tool was but it wasn't specially made or n-e thing. But you have to hold all your weight against the gun so there's no shrapnel. That's what the metals for.

Turns out that both were cocots. so i decided to hook up the lines to each other. After that i decidided to prank Todd @ 1-800-555-5656 so i called him up and stayed on the line he picked up an i stayed silent as he picked up and the other line kept ringing

Just don't expect that handset to pop off in your grip. Those suckers have a steel wire running from the handset, back into the payphone. Its that same kind of wire you chain up your bike with :) . If you ever plan on taking one of those handsets home with you, bring the boltcutters. For a view of that setup, see my payphone anatomy pictures.

I was pissed off that it was not redboxable so i called up the repair servace to bitch at them they wernt there so i came up with the idea of stuffing leaves down the coin slot.tho inly thing i had to stuff them down was my quarter.So i put that in an got it stuck so i pushed it farther down into the coin slot hoping it would come out. It didnt so i called up repair service (Again) to tell them i was going to rip the handf ser od their cheapo phone. so i started pulling and yanking at the handset after about the thirgd pull a nickel came out that didnt satisfy me so i kept yanking and my quarter came out i dacided to yank some more and another nickel came out i was satisfied so i went away with my 35 cents. im going back tommrow to see if i can get somemore money.

Hmmm....those operators sure show up fast when something goes wrong, don't they?

A few years ago, my friend in Philly boxed a call to me. After being on the line for a while, that familiar voice asked for more money, and he inserted some virtual quarters, and the voice thanked him. The next time it asked for money, he was beeping in the money, but he slipped, and pulled his redbox away from the microphone on the phone, so the tones didn't fully register.. An operator appeared almost immediately, and my friend hung up, but I stayed on. The Op, said something like "Oh, I think your friend hung up!". and I said something like "Well, I guess he ran out of money, oh well".

And that was about it...the Op never said anything about fraudulent calls or threatening me with paying for it.

Maybe this should have gone in the Amazing Stories section.

Have you ever heard of a chemical mixture called "Thermite?" It burns at about 2000 degrees celsius and can melt Carbide Steel, or melt 3 or 4 inches into concrete. If you place a dime sized portion of it on a phone, so it will melt the lock on the cash box but wont melt your coins (that would be fucking dumb) than you can ignite it with a magnesium ribbon or a magnesium lance. It HAS to be a magnesium based ignitor because Magnesium burns hot enough to ignite it. Wear gloves when doing this and make sure your foot is not under the phone, because the thermite will keep going if you use to much, and will melt through the phone and land on your foot. When it melts through the lock, open the box, pull out the coins, and run like fucking hell. The glow from this shit will make it impossible to do this to any pay phone that isn't in a secluded spot. I will not supply the directions to make this, unless someone out there shows interest in the process.

Yeah, I don't know if you have noticed or not, but I have written a small article on Elcotel. They supposedly have a trial version of this software available (PayPhone Network Manager). But trying to get a hold of it is like pulling teeth. Also they changed their FTP login and password after I fucked with it and looted all their photos. Woops. I guess they do check their logs. I only wish their software had been in there. Anyhow, check out my page, and e-mail me if you find out anything. I will continue my SEing for the time being.

basically, that means not only must it except some type of normal term emulation, but the software should be available to us, probably after imputing a passcode. Personally I am on the look out's for olympian 5501 and 5500's. Gryfter

I will be putting up the PLA site for the 614 area code around that time, so I will place it up for download. May need someone to help me out with an FTP though (depending on how many meg the software is). Their page qoutes it at 450 meg, which has to be a typo.

Hurt: Most of the things described below regarding COCOTs are done "voice", by dialing the COCOT with your telephone, and not through your computer....Some COCOTs answer with a carrier first (before its voice comes on), and you would dial those with your computer, using SmartTerm, or ProComm or some other terminal emulation software like that... I don't know what protocol COCOTs use, but it might be 7-E-1.... Try it and see what happens.

FROM - <Pay Phone Directory Guy> - Washington (509)

When you call a COCOT that says "Thank you", the phone usually plays touch tones after it. Then you can dial in a touch tone code to make it do stuff. All I have ever gotten them to do is make the modem come on, but there could be other codes which could get you a touch tone menu.

ALL cocots don't only accept data calls. Some of them only accept voice calls, some can tell the difference between voice and data, some will give you a touch tone menu, some will just say "thank you" and hang up on you. Some of them will just ring forever because the owner has removed or turned off the ringer.

When you dial up a COCOT you (At least I do)Open up Terminal and then dial the COCOT's number. This works because COCOT's only except data calls not voice. Search COCOT's in AltaVista and you will learn more.

I've had almost no luck dialing directly into COCOTs. From what I've been told, it needs a special modem. AN old school modem I believe. But I've made a few connections, but the other side doesn't respond with anything meaningful. Most of the time in Tone Loc I get back about 200 lines of ~? over and over again.

Cathode Ray, If you open your account at MailBoxes USA under your real name AND a business name, it is legal. Even if the business name you give them doesn't exist, and isn't the same as another local business, it's OK.....Then you can receive mail only addressed to the business name, without your name appearing on the mailing label.

TOPIC - cocot software - 01/17/98 09:45:46 EST -

Usually cocot software will dial directly into the pay phone and connect. It'll make a special beeping noise so that the pay phone knows it's a data call, just like a fax switch usually works. I know that used to, you had to install a special hardware card into your computer so that it would work, but who knows how they're doing it these days. Could be alot of fun to play around with if we had a copy.

You guys arent gonna believe the stuff I have found. Check out this web page if you havent all ready. This company makes payphones and COCOT's. They also make software (Win95) that you can run to call up your COCOT and manage your stuff. I have the feeling that this software dials a BBS, which then dials your COCOT, but not sure. The software is called Payphone Network Manager. Of course you wont find the sowftare on the webpage, nor anywhere else. I tried FTPing to the site login:elcotel passwd:elcotel and got nothing but a freindly reminder that I was being logged. There aint shiznit in there. Then I tried telenet'n to it. Couldn't even get a login. Tried an FTP search, nothing. So if you can find this software or any other discoveries, LMK.

About the dialing out from cocots, the 2600 doesnt have anything to do with it. what you do is take a unmodified rat shack tone dialer and go up to the phone. Pick up the reciever to get the fake dialtone then call some 1800 number, as hobnob said, let them hang up. Instead of using the phones keypad, because sometimes it wont work or fucks it up, use your tone dialer for the dtmf's and dial away.

nod.. i don't think the 2600 tone has anything to do with it.. i believe people used to do it by calling 1-800 #'s and getting the person to hang up on them... as long as the other party hangs up.. you are free to re-dial as manytimes as you want.. (i *think* this is the case)

Ok, i figured out, that on some cocots, that if you call up the operator, and blast the biatch with a 2600 tone, then if u wait, you will get a dialtone, and will be able to dialout. If you reah a fone like this, skypage will also work. If you get a dialtone, and then can't dial, then fuck it. It won't work on that piece of shiat fone. Also, about out of 8 or more cocots you test it on, in any area, it will work, on an average, of 3 cocots.
