  1. That would be awesome if they can do it! Keep us posted.
  2. I'm not so sure you can get service from Centurylink. For starters, I tried a few Elyria addresses on their website and none of them said service was available. Also, those two switches you mentioned are in different ratecenters. Usually one company can give you an FX line from one of THEIR other CO's without an issue. But, between companies, in different ratecenters, I'm not so sure. I bet they could definitely deliver you a dialtone via a T1 circuit, but that would definitely be way outside of your price point. In short, it doesn't hurt to try, so you should still give them a call. Do you have DSL from Windstream? As crazy as it sounds, at least with Verizon out here, things are cheaper if you bundle phone with DSL than just getting a phone line. You might want to check into that.
  3. I get a "the service you're trying to use is not available on this line" recording from my EWSD when I dial 67 and wait. When I dial 70 and wait, I get the "if you'd like to place a call..." recording
  4. You should be able to dial international freephone lines through a CIC like 101-0288, unless you've blocked access to those.
  5. I asked Evan about the missing Z tapes. Those were given to Mark Bernay but were not recorded by Mark or Evan. He can't remember off the top of his head who contributed them. Evan wasn't aware that the tape was only posted temporarily. He has some other material in addition to the -part-1 file on Thoughtphreaker's server. He wants to extract the stuff from those files that he doesn't already have in higher quality and get it out. If that doesn't happen relatively soon, remind me!
  6. When I first saw the number I wondered why you were asking about the ANAC as well! I would have thought this was a Dominion recording as well, but I feel like it might be hard to tell. I don't see a telephone directory on their website.
  7. I'm chiming in pretty late, but since I was served by a Windstream (formerly Alltel, formerly Mid Continent), I figured I should add my two cents. Some things in Windstream territory followed the Verizon standard for the area. For example, the CO numbers were the same last 4 that Verizon used. Same deal for the milliwatt. In general, the standards from the nearby LEC might filter down to the independent companies. Might that situation apply to you as well? Other than that, I've noticed that Windstream varies quite a bit from place to place. The ANAC in my town was NXX-3NXX, so if your exchange was 234, you might want to try 234-1234, and 234-2234, etc. Try all the office codes served by your switch and see if you come across anything interesting. Even the remotes. For some reason, they put the ANAC on a remote! Also, I found some other interesting things by looking in the range of the old local business office number. See if you can dig up some old telephone directories for your town, and see if you can find the number for the business office. Also, it was posted on the old underground telephone lines placards, so see if you have any old looking telco signs in your area. Also, I think I also found the old business office number by searching for Alltel and Mid Continent online. That was many years ago, back when there was a lot more old, outdated directory information online.
  8. Around here, any payphone that was "forgotten" when Pacific Telemanagement took over and still has Verizon signage is dead. I found several payphones at Arnold Palmer (RIP) Regional Airport that were updated with Pacific Telemanagement logos but were still CO-controlled payphones. So, you never know. Always check!
  9. Cool, I haven't heard them called that before. Thanks!
  10. What's high-low mean?
  11. I guess it's worth noting that even with the rebrand, they kept 483 (GTE) as the code you need to dial to order service.
  12. From what I understand, some places do, some don't. I haven't encountered this in my area. Around here I usually find more pairs with battery but no dialtone than pairs that lack battery.
  13. Also, it sounds like this took a lot of work. Was this that big of a problem for the ambulance company? Or is Verizon trying to use this case to somehow gain something?
  14. Interesting! Seems legitimate, but I wonder why people are calling an ambulance company instead of 911.
  15. I would try asking in the SingingWires Yahoo Group.
