  1. Was peeking at the old Test Line forum, and found that this one's still an odd thing: (501) 374-0453 757-484-9987 sounds like a broken echo test? 978-772-9404 is the same, but someone mentioned it was an ISDN test line?
  2. For what it's worth, 0 + 710-867-5309 dialed from whatever VoIP switch WOW! uses gives reorder with no error message. 1 + 710-867-5309 gives the dial tone 'prompt' (which I believe is the PIN prompt). After 10 seconds, it drops to an error message: "We are unable to complete your call because operator assistance is not permitted for this call" 0 + 710-NCS-GETS also gives reorder. 1 + 710-NCS-GETS also gives the dial tone 'prompt'. After 10 seconds, it goes to the operator.
  3. Posting here as this is related to scanning / janning / wardialling. Thinking about repurposing an old Asus EEE PC netbook for some flavor of Linux, to install iWar / WarVOX for autojanning via VoIP (IAX2 is allegedly supported on both programs). Has anyone used either program, or know anything about them? Wanting call progress detection and logging, simple interface, ability to set NPA-NXX-YYYY parameters and control randomness and timing of calls. Thanks!

  5. Yup! Still going strong. I might be on myself at some point this weekend... I have some things to bounce off people and such.
  6. I believe that the Warner Robbins 1A is no longer there. Happened within the last few days, it seems. Someone I talked to on Twitter had recently found a sweeping frequency test on 478-923-3131, but now that's an NIS.
  7. It definitely goes off-hook, like it should to start... But you're right, the SS7 trunks probably make the rest of the test obsolete. I'm trying to think of a test number that would definitely be indicative of an electromechanical (or whatever you want to consider a 1A) switch, but wouldn't be present on whatever crap is there now.
  8. I have to wonder if the 0+ is significant in this case, as you're essentially asking for an operator assisted call to... An operator? An area code that is blocked off save for one number? I'd be curious about a 0+ to the actual GETS number, and see if it goes through (preferably from a payphone).
  9. Context for those that might not be familiar with the significance of the 710 area code: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Area_code_710
  10. Right. On top of Evan's recordings, I found a list of old 1xx codes (and noted that quite a few were inwards). So I might wind up revisiting the list with those 2 additional sources, and see how many more consistently pop up.
  11. I don't think it is... But I think I can find more. I'm going to look at the switches that were due to cut over this year, and mine for test numbers. Not sure when this'll start (it'll have to be soon), but I'll consider it my next project.
  12. I want to say Odessa is still alive and kicking... And I also want to say I found an old 103-type test on it, but I can't quite get it to work. 432-333-8180
  13. So if you've followed the new Some Numbers thread, I managed to get through all 359 LERG-listed 0xx codes. Out of those, I've found a total of 18 that very consistently went to an Operator of some sort on a 1211 last 4. While that 5% success rate is impressive in 2017, I'm not convinced that the 18 I found are all that is. This is why I'm working on an Excel spreadsheet to figure out any patterns to focus on. The LERG has a lot of columns of information, but I want to narrow them down to things that would be important to possible patterns. Here's an example of an entry on the LERG list, narrowed down to data that might help: NPA NXX LATA LATA NAME AOCN OCN OCN_NAME ABBRE_OCN_NAME LOC STATE SWITCH EQP TYPE T-SWITCH T-TANDEM T-EQUIP TYPE H-EQUIP TYPE 201 007 224 NORTH JERSEY NJ 7228 7229 MCIMETRO, ATS, INC. MCIMETRO ATS INC NJ NBWKNJ17DS1 NT5 ABRDMD9277W 238 STP NT5 Obviously NPA and NXX are being kept to be the headers of the rows... But the other ones, I'm not sure what would be relevant. I would think Switch Type for sure, maybe OCNs... Or would the tandems be more important, because maybe I'm hitting the tandems instead of the switch I'm dialing into? Any help would be awesome!
  14. Well, it turns out that everything I was told previously was wrong. Through several different agents. Over several different months. Somehow. Was told definitively by two different folks at Centurylink today that I definitely could not get service, as Windstream is the incumbent. Soooo... There's the end of that.
  15. I have yet to find a third party that offers services in our area of any kind... Do you know who you go through, and are you at liberty to tell me, so I could take a look for equivalent in my area? My city looks like a largely old Ameritech / current Windstream area, but we're close enough to the service border that they've probably hopped C-Link services over it before. As for the house itself, it's POTS accessible easily enough (Windstream had no problems hooking in). Not really sure, but I can only go by what I've been told. I will say that the installation fees were a bit on the high side ($35) and they weren't able to immediately tell me what my NPA-NXX would be... So that really leads me to believe there's an FX-like setup involved.
