Hmm... wonder what ranges would be good to scan?
I actually had a particularly interesting moment calling +81-22-717-9999. At first, it sounded like an unusual echo test, so I started saying stuff and pressing touchtones for the hell of hearing it echo back from Japan. Then, a conversation between two people in Japanese appears out of the blue. The two of them were both heavily vocoderized, perhaps on satellite phones. One of them happened to press *, so for the sake of experimenting, I pressed it too. And they both vanished. I tried pressing whatever I could, but nothing I could think to try would make whatever this is react again.
Incidentally, I found out later this number is located in Sendai, which is about as close to the epicenter of the quake as you could hope to get. It's very possible that something was going very, very wrong, but it also seems like there'd have to be a damn good reason for them disappearing when I pressed * .
If you want to look for ranges to explore, the best way in my opinion is to get the city code first, and use that in a google search. For example,http://www.wtng.info/ccod-8.html#CC81
599 is the city code for Toba, so if you want to find valid landline ranges there, you'd search for this;http://www.google.co...f&aqi=&aql=&oq=
. I'll see what I can dig up myself.
