On both my T-Mobile cell and on a qwest line here 959-1050 plays an odd tone. Any idea what this is used for?

 

I can get a recording if need be.

What kinda weird tone? Not a constant 1004Hz milliwatt I guess?

By ear sounds like a sawtooth or square 2227 Hz but I will make a recording when I find my recording stuff.

Yep! Thats's a 105-type test. I have no idea what they're actually called, so well, they're 105-type tests. Press some buttons, and it'll play you back different tones. They change a little depending on the manufacturer. Sometimes 9, and sometimes # will give you a noise test. 0 will usually hang up on you.

 

Strangely enough, I've heard a couple switches where any non-working 959 number defaults to a 105-type test.

 

EDIT: Y'all have got some good ears! I think that's sine wave, though.

No I just use a guitar tuner that displays Hz.

You know I have never thought of that! That's smart man.
