309-372-9974 - CO Sensaphone

707-584-0078 - This number is weird. If you put one call up to it, the call will just ring indefinitely. If you send two calls, it'll answer with a modem. I guess a switchman has been having fun with a hunt group feature.

 

Anyway, glad to see a little life in this thread :) .

949-777-9138 - "The number you have called is provided service by a carrier no longer qualified with the California Public Utilities Commission to provide telecommunications services in California. We regret we have been ordered not to complete calls to that carrier's numbers. Please try alternative means of communication. Thank you."

 

804-527-1275 - Ancient Rolm PBX at the MCI Richmond tandem office. 0+7xxx will transfer you to some weird doohickey that takes DTMF.

This technically isn't a PSTN number, but I thought I'd share it anyway since it made me laugh. 317-3999 on the MCI Vnet network will get you a recording from a German call center. The music bed on there is so eighties it hurts.

 

312-924-9925 - "Your intra-LATA toll provider is SBC Local Exchange Carrier or a reseller of the SBC Local Exchange Carrier's network."

503-654-9900 - Synthesized voice, "AM transmitter. Please enter access code"

the AM transmitter number now goes to a weird static. interesting.

I know I already posted this number forever ago, but since it's relevant, I thought I might post it again since it's still awesome/funny.

 


435-257-5141 - Holy crap, it's a DATU doing time! laugh.gif What's interesting is that they have another machine running, in case this one is busy.

 

585-974-1616 - Rochester, NY time

702-844-xxxx - Nevada Time/temp (ETC)

907-852-0000 - Barrow, AK Weatherfone. It'll tell you how many hours of daylight they'll have.

325-597-0212 - Brady, TX Time & Temp

520-387-8463 - Ajo, AZ time (Innovative Systems AP)

213-226-9969 - Here's a time/temperature number for Oklahoma! On...a Paetec switch in Los Angeles? :huh:

 

the AM transmitter number now goes to a weird static. interesting.

 

Huh, it was busy when I tried it.

 

510-238-0000 - "Please enter the five digit telephone number to forward followed by your PIN number."

419-724-9949 - rec, "We're sorry, the number you have dialed has been temporarily disconnected. Thank you for using the Buckeye Telesystem network."

419-724-9986 - Buckeye Telesystem employee VMB

 

EDIT: Sorry xhausted, I didn't see your question. Yeah, I think all Sensaphones tell you to have a good day before they hang up.

310-347-3277

"id number 1 all channels are normal..(tone) channel 1 normal channel 2 normal channel 3 normal channel 4 normal... (tone) -(repeats 3x).... goodbye"

it appears that it is from some bakery... possibly some type of monitoring system?

 

I ran across one of these this evening at 352-795-0029, it does appear to be a monitoring system.  More specifically, a Catalyst Voice Alarm Monitoring System.

 

You may call the Catalyst RTU at any time from any telephone. The product will wait the configured
number of rings before answering and beginning a voice status report. The status report starts with the Unit
ID message, followed by a request for entry of any touch-tone digit. Entering a tone will establish that this
is to be a voice mode session, rather than a data mode (modem) session.
 
Exception: If PINs (Personal Identification Numbers) have been configured, the RTU will require entry of
a valid PIN before proceeding.
 
Next will follow any special warning messages, followed by a channel status report. The channel status
report will report only the channels whose alarm state is "other than normal". If there are no channels
whose alarm state is "other than normal," then channel status report will simply consist of a statement that,
"All Channels Are Normal."

More info about it here: Quick Start Guide and Operator's Manual.

Thanks for finding that out. There's what looks to be an older model of the same thing in some tiny (quite literally a ghost town) CO; 831-389-4504. I've wondered for a while what that was.

 

EDIT: Another number. I didn't feel up to making a new post.

 

248-574-7000 - rec, "The international number dialed is not available on your current calling plan. If you believe this to be an error, please contact customer service at 877-877-4799, and reference 000-000-0000-44. We apologize for the inconvenience."

This is my first post on here so...

 

713-278-4926 Rings 2 times at a short duration and then gives you a softer dial tone. I don't know how to operate it. Comes from a 5ESS "HSTNTXSU"

 

281-464-1499 Gives you a modern announcement ("We're sorry. Your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please check the number and dial again. Or, call your operator to help you. This is a recording.") then transfers you to the "All circuits busy" announcement from magnetic drum ("We're sorry. All circuits are busy now. Will you please try your call again later.") This is from a 1AESS in Houston.

 

EDIT 16 April 2014 @ 18:49 CDT/UTC-5

 

I have a recording of 464-1499 if you guys here want to hear...

(281) 464 appears to be an interesting exchange.

took a quick look around and got the following things:

464-9999 gave a milliwatt

464-9998 gave silence and then reorder after a minute or two.

464-9997 gave a cool-sounding reorder

464-9996 rang

that's all I dialed. maybe someone should do a scan.

I hate to be the one to deliver bad news here, but that isn't actually a 1AESS anymore. It's a Nortel MG9000 remote hosted off a CS-2000 (basically, newer generation of DMS-100/200 hardware), which also serves as a tandem for the area. I dunno how that differentiates it from a full scale end office, but that's what AT&T says.

 

https://ebiznet.att....1031L.1_Web.doc

 

800-594-2090 - Clear Channel feed of some sort from WOAI. This doesn't seem to be relaying local things, like top of the hour IDs or locally played commercials. Maybe syndication related?

800-594-2089 - KRPT feed. This one is more normal.

888-212-0019 - Weird IVR.

 

I dunno why, I've been on kind of a toll-free stint lately.

Thank you VERY much on your findings.... damn AT&T testline page..... they don't update their page very well do they?

 

EDIT: The feed from the radio station is awesome.

EDIT2: Is it normal to hear poor-quailty intercept recordings for NEW switching equipment?

 

Well, yes and no. The announcement machines in a lot of the older equipment aren't really all that different from the newer stuff. The big differences are that the new switches are a lot more likely to come with stock recordings that go unchanged, and that announcements are much easier to directly upload to the switch. A lot of the older announcements are recorded by playing audio into a phone line. Most switchmen don't care about making a clean recording or setting the levels properly or anything, so what you'll get is all over the map.

 

The all circuits busy recording you heard is a bit of a different story. It actually isn't coming from the MG9000, the switch is tearing down the call with a cause code saying that all circuits are busy. The 5ESS you're on reacts by playing it's own all circuits busy recording.

 

For the longest time, I thought there was some steel drum or something turning away in the CO too, but it's actually a solid state digital machine. There's one a lot like it on eBay right now; http://www.ebay.com/...=item4d1bb116c9

 

The machine has really noisy amplifiers, generates a lot of crosstalk between the announcement trunks, and more often then not, the master tapes from the studio actually are tape. There's a couple Global Crossing tandems where you'll even hear the 1 khz test tone from the master tape bleeding onto the announcements.

 

EDIT: Switchhook dialing! You, sir, are awesome.

That would explain why the "all circuits busy" message sounded more dirtier than I expected. So as I dialed 464-3169 in the 281 code, is that routed to my local C.O or coming directly from the MG9000?

About your point about most switchmen not caring about the recording... that part may be true.

832-4421111(local toll call from the 713-278 prefix... I don't have local toll or long distance service) NOTICE how dirty it sounds compared if I added "1" before the number and that the S.I.T sounds like it was 'clipped'.

"1"212-2222222 (much more clearer isn't it?)

 

ANYWAY, i have a number for testing switchboards. You should know what my original area code is if you live in houston.

Wow, that IVR I posted last time died FAST. A lot faster then I've seen anything else die, actually. I guess someone is paying pretty close attention to it.

 

877-733-5250 - Verizon Dallas NOC. They'll let you reach any extension you want via the main manu. Since this is a NOC, there's obviously nothing interesting on that whole PBX.

 

 

 

So as I dialed 464-3169 in the 281 code, is that routed to my local C.O or coming directly from the MG9000?

 

Everything before the ringing is coming from the MG9000.

977-5100 ("Phone System. This is  XXXXX.")

 

Assuming I'm getting the area code right, I'm getting some guy's cell phone :| .

 

EDIT: For anybody interested in what that IVR was saying, I did find a transcript. Maybe we can shed some light on why it's been disconnected.
