the cards have a magnetic stripe that gets swiped at the time of purchase. and i was wondering what was read off of the card, and what info was sent from the point of sale terminal after the card was swiped. they don't swipe the cards in the same machine as the debit cards and it gives a seperate receipt from the 7-11 purchase receipt.
that recipt looks like this:
agent id 0865
time 24 hour
prepaid phone card:
cardtype flat rate v
trx type actv
auth no. 350671
trx amt $20.00
current balance $20.00

i still have to do a google for this datawave, but finding out the what and the how of the data transfer could probably lead to some interesting things.
and i'll try out calling the toll free and then "stacking" the other 'local dial' numbers ontop of it to see what will happen. will i be charged at a multiple of the current rate based on the number of local dial numbers i call? or will it even let me enter my pin while it's in use?
*edit* i just read that thread in the misc project page, ebay or a local distributer are the places to go for the card reader i guess.

they have a number to recharge the card using a credit card of some sort by dialling this number 1-888-820-0588
i tried dialing around today and i was able to go from here to vancouver, and then connect to halifax and jump back to toronto with ease. it let me enter my pin 4 times without any fuss. i guess the next step is finding out if it blocks ani/ani II info. and google-ing some more.

if i really get into the swing of things i'll head over to 7-11 today and try to get some info out of the clerks and/or any phonenumbers/info from the terminal itself.

a few more tid-bits to whet your appetite.
theres a serial number on the bottom of a $10 card i used up, which is identical to the serial number of a new card of mine until you get to the lower digits. the number is: 185256159

i just tried it out and it let me stack several numbers over the period of roughly 3 minutes.
my inithal balance for this session was $16.30 and after all was said and done it was down to $16.12 it charges 5 cents per minute for access in canada so they added 3 cents onto it after all the looping *shrug* and i still have to test out if the stacking is of any benifit.
