  1. Hello Are there any countries, which still use CCITT 5? Sorry for my bad English
  2. Are there any good toll free numbers to call from a payphone? (Ringback, ANAC, etc) Thanks! -whixrr
  3. (Out of curiosity) Does anyone know anything about answering machine hacking? I know a string that enters every possible two digit number. (12345678987654321357924686429731474193366994488552277539596372582838491817161511026203040506070809001) If anyone has experience, please leave a reply below.
  4. need a phone number that is "untracable" without a warrant, as in no published exploits etc that can connect it back to my dox, needs to be a single number that I can pick up like a real cell phone and answer my question is does google voice work for that...? i registered it on an email not connected to my real one... theres an option on google voice to route calls to a different number, which you can then pick up and talk to people on, ive done that already but im not sure if theres some exploit people can use to find out my real number that gmail it routes to, cuz the routing number is my actual cell phone obviously with a warrant people would be able to get my real number and shit but it won't come to that, its nothing illegal, but i need a way to do this so it'd be impossible to find my real world information without police involvement is google voice good for that? if not what else should i use? thanks
  5. Hey there Forum. I recently aquired a payphone from a run down gas station and have poked the program button a few times. However, I still can't make free calls even though I've programmed the board to do so. This is a Protel board model xk7000. I can program the free number ok, but for any other call, like 10 digit, 7 digit, it doesn't seem to do anything. I think I may need the ExpressNet software to " really " re-program this thing. I would appreciate any links to download ExpressNet or maybe a file transfer could be arranged. It seems like Google is hiding a lot about ExpressNet.
  6. Back in 2007, I designed a blue box for use with my ProjectMF server, a telephone PBX switch that allows phone phreaking in a manner similar to the old days of in-band signalling - MF and SF audio tones. That blue box was based upon the PIC 12F683 8-pin DIP microcontroller. Phil Lapsley ("Exploding the Phone") designed a PCB board for it and many aspiring phreaks have built the circuit over the years. One issue with the original code was that it was written in PicBASIC Pro. PicBASIC had a "tone" command that could produce two simultaneous tones if a 20MHz oscillator was used. However, the tone generation never sounded quite right. David Griffith, a vintage telephony and computer buff, decided to re-write my code in C. He followed the same general design principles as I used in my 2007 box, but added some very impressive features and - most importantly - the tones sound great! The code now runs on a modern 8-bin ATTINY85 microcontroller. Dave has also designed circuit boards for the chip and circuit. However, I found the circuit is straightforward enough to build on protoboard, which allowed me to produce this replica of the blue box featured on the first page of the famous October, 1971 Esquire magazine article which popularized phone phreaking. Dave's code may be found at: Manual, schematic and and precompiled .hex files at: df99
  7. I figured we should start a list of countries that still use CCITT5 for international calls. It would be cool to get a list of country codes and prefixes. For testing this stuff I recommend using Blue Beep on DosBox, which is available from Text Files via the Wikipedia article. Use the one with the source code, as its more up to date. Check out this text file Blue Boxing in the Late 90s for more information on how this stuff works. The CIA World Factbook has information on the phone systems in use in every country in the world. World Factbook Numbers I have found so far that use it in some form: United States Toll Free International Direct Numbers 866-284-3437 - C5 Trunk to Malaysia (maybe) 888-647-6843 - C5 Trunk to Argentina via Sprint 877-655-0054 - C5 Trunk to Argentina via AT&T 877-278-9344 - C5 Trunk to Argenina via MCI
  8. These are just a few numbers that I've found, but cannot explain. If you know what these numbers do or what they are intended to do, please let me know. 1 800 354 2600 - This number doesn't sound like a modem to me but it does make a loud screechy noise. 1 800 423 2600 - This number plays a series of rhythmic beeps in a loop forever. 1 800 393 2600 - “We’re sorry. All circuits are busy now. Would you please try your call again later? And finally these numbers all play "End of call." before hanging up: 1 800 218 2600 1 800 399 2600 1 800 410 2600 1 800 418 2600 Thanks a bunch, Scoobydooble
  9. So i called my local payphone (818) 506-9335 with my dial up modem and Interestingly enough it handshakes and everything. I had my terminal encoding set to IBM-850 and I got this: TC!*8185069335*93180*DD4322*2027*016*1504257225303*90245* I know that payphones have a remote management mode, and I'm thinking that this might be it. Anyone have any ideas?
  10. Would you use "Phreaking" as an action or a activity? EX:I am a phreaker EX:I am a phreak EX2:I just phreaked that payphone. How do you guys use the word? Personally, I never say "i phreaked it" or "Thats how he phreaked that system"
  11. I have noticed that all (or most?) toll free number prefixes, end in a repeated digit. (example) 911 800 888 877 866 etc But, 411 is an exception. Does anyone know what that is about? Or is it just for people to know if something is toll free? Anyways, Thanks for posting!
  12. There are Millennium Payphones in my area (206 WA) If anyone has info, please reply Answers : pc-oholic Questions : whixrr Q:Can you use Millenium payphones as DTMF decoders? (using the screen as a monitor and playing the DTMF tone into the handset mic?) A: Once you are in a call, they can decode TTY-text, so they should be able to also decode DTMF. Q:Does anyone know if the Millennium payphone's dial tone is fake? I think that they are, because every 5 seconds, a automated voice says "Please Insert Coin or Card" etc A: This is correct. It is fake. Q:This may be difficult to understand, but you will if you try it.) I am questioning that the DTMF tones that you press are not controlling the actual line. I believe that because you dial, then wait for the call, you hear the DTMF (that you dialed by hand) digits dialing faster, (by a machine) Does anyone know what this is about? A:That is correct, too. Between you punching in the number and the phone dialing, a lot can actually happen: For example the phone making a modem-connection to the NCC to get the rate, etc. Q:Also, I have found out that when you dial 0 (operator) and wait, the machine doesn't play the 0 DTMF tone, it plays a longer number to call the operator. Does anyone know what this is about? A:You can program the phones to do pretty much every thing you want... Besides 0, almost all N11-numbers for (except 911) are just "aliases" to local phone numbers... And sometimes, they even alias local phone numbers (think of 411 -> 555-1212 -> XXX-555-1212 to treat every "request for information"-call at the same point of contact). If anyone has any more info or questions, post them below.
  13. The PLA (Phone Losers of America, Have been hosting a Answering Machine hacking contest where you attempt to break into answering machines and change random settings/listen to messages/set outgoing message etc. RBCP gives out the model of the answering machine's. The number is 1-206-424-8422. More info can be found at . Essentially, There is more than just answering machine hacking, there is also chose your own adventure, a conference line, and many more things, check it out. All credit goes to RBCP for this, I just wanted to show you guys. 1-206-424-8422
  14. 1-952-652-0000 This number is a payphone emulator, you can redbox it and such.
  15. If anyone knows any single tone phreaking frequencies, please post them below. (examples) 2600hz-seized trunks back in the day 1100hz-Fax presence (yet to be explored)
  16. I was calling my friend (locally) and I was whistling and then I heard, "Please Enter Password" I am thinking that i must have whistled the one of the DTMF frequencies for the asterisk key. (The key that asks for remote operation) Any thoughts?
  17. I have completed a 2600hz whistle for the TRS-80 model 100. It emits 2600hz and has a impressive binrev bbs ansii art. IMG_1335.MOV
  18. I ordered a TRS-80 Model 100 yesterday night, and I got an emulator ( and I found out that you could output sound. So, like a good phreak, I tune to 2600hz, add a cool textart logo, and boom. 2600hz tone on the tip of a button. (This is for Nostalgic reasons, I dont plan on using this) But, once the TRS-80 model 100 comes, I will rewrite the program on that, and take a video. I am new to basic programming, so it is not beautiful, but it does the trick. If any of you guys have ever done things like this, reply to this topic and tell me. I am interested in creating a DTMF Dialer software, but, the model 100's sound output is meant for creating music, not tones, so sadly, I cant just input the frequencies and assign them to each number. [ (EXAMPLE) 2600hz = 940 ] (The model 100 will probably come on the 23.) whixrr [EDIT] IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO PLAY TWO TONES AT ONCE (using the "sound (pitch),(time)" commands, please reply.
  19. Post your Phreaking Boxes/Old Telephone Equipment! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ •Bell Model 500 desk set (black) (circa 1975)
  20. (THE STORY) I recently ordered a TRS-80 model 100 and I have been waiting for it to come, (probably going to come on 3/23/15) I started creating a DTMF (Dual Tone Multi Frequency) Tone Dialer. And I noticed that you cannot just input frequencies, you have to enter the weird musical code, so I found the musical code and converted freq to code (example: 2600hz = 940) If anyone has knowledge on how to play two tones at once, please reply. (THE QUESTION) If anyone has knowledge on how to play two tones at once using the sound command, please reply. (The sound command uses the musical code, then timing. (For example, 2600hz for 3/4th of a second = SOUND 940,100 ) whixrr
  21. Hey BinRev, this is my Third post. I was wondering if anyone knows how to do anything interesting with Wimactel Payphones. If you know any of these things, please post. *interesting toll-free numbers ...... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Alright, on to the post You cant red/bluebox them as the mics are muted. I haven't tried "Punching" a local call with a nail. (as seen in wargames) But I believe that the coin box is plastic. (cant complete circuit) I guess I could beige box them, but that looks very suspicious. And, the wires go strait into concrete. (Through the stand) There is a 32 digit code that works on most payphones to empty the coin box ( 24998-24001-29190-90467-59718-7429-087 ) ( I'll make another post about this ) but I don't think that that will work Here are some images of them. Wimactels have a lcd screen on them that says "Welcome, Please insert coin" and that kind of thing. If can do anything interesting, please tell! -whixrr
  22. File Name: BinRev Magazine 2.1 File Submitter: StankDawg File Submitted: 01 May 2014 File Category: BR Magazine The third issue of BinRev magazine. Before now, DDP members had been responsibly for writing most of the articles with a few of our regular supporters and good friends writing as well. At this stage, we really tried to push for more content from outside submissions. This is sadly what had always been a problem with the hacking community. Submissions and content providers are hard to find. Everyone wants to consume, but no one contributes. We were able to get some great stuff for this issue but it took a lot longer than I was expecting and it was the only issue that we released all year. That being said, it was yet another triumph artistically! Logan5 did an amazing cover which was completely his idea from the start. This cover was another work of art suitable for framing and one of my biggest regrets was with the final printed product. I just didn't have enough experience with printing to foresee that a wrap-around cover like the one used in this issue would cause the edges to crack when it was folded and stapled. I was heartbroken when the spine cracked on our nice card-stock covers because I felt like I was disrespecting his beautiful cover. Click here to download this file
  23. File Name: BinRev Magazine 1.2 File Submitter: StankDawg File Submitted: 01 May 2014 File Category: BR Magazine Original Release Date: September 2003 The second issue of BinRev magazine was much improved in term of visual aspects and creativity. We set a general theme for each issue and we tried to keep the overall design and layout as well as the articles that we wrote around those type of topics. On that theme, logan5 had free reign to do what he wanted with the cover compared to my simplistic approach last issue. I was amazed at his creativity and still think that this cover is suitable for framing all by itself. The interiors were also amazing! I was a lot more hands-off on the design work in this issue because it was apparent that logan5 was infinitely better at that than me so I focused on layout and editing while he made the graphics match the articles and really bring the whole magazine to life. If the first issue was our proof of concept, this issue was our proof of our ability to really get it right. This issue and the following issues were the proudest things that I ever put out in all of BinRev history. Click here to download this file
  24. File Name: BinRev Magazine 1.1 File Submitter: StankDawg File Submitted: 01 May 2014 File Category: BR Magazine Original Release Date: May 2003 The very first issue of BinRev magazine. We started numbering with Issue 1.1 as the official release. The goal was to number as "Year.Issue" so that we could always increment and release as many issues as we were able and have them in numeric sequence. We never released enough for this to make sense so the numbering system ended up looking strange to readers. This issue was very light-hearted and had some silly pictures and was a proof of concept to see if the interest was there. The article content was great and the formatting was a work-in-progress but we certainly got better with subsequent issues. Click here to download this file
