I was just about to mention my article and you beat me to it. I got so sick and tired of hearing people say that it's dead or only possible through local operators; so that's finally cleared up to the max.
There is a decent article about redboxing and finding the places where it still works in this quarter's 2600.
Anyway, aside from red boxing and beige boxing, there are a few other boxes that still have some use today, one of which is a newer "box" called the Orange Box. I would highly recommend Fixer's box review which goes over all of the phreak boxes and their plausibility as of today. In my opinion though, phreaking isn't really all about phreak boxes anymore considering that we're long past the electromechanical switching days.

Thats only my opinion though. I'm interested in what other people think as well.

As long as there are TNIs and linemen there will always be beige boxing. I've heard red boxing does in fact still work in some areas, but YMMV.
Yeah-about ten years ago, when me and my friend used to go out beige boxing almost every night, we would take a party box with us. ( which is still usable today w/two beige boxes )
Leaving gay sex line recordings on telco employees vmb's , or connecting two operators together , or whatever used to be funny as hell.
Yeah-those were the days..
