number i found scanning

42 posts in this topic

ok-i i'm very curious about this because i've never come across anything like this.
first you hear some numbers(i think they change every day or two)then you hear
some tones-dtmf,then it gives a busy signal. so i recorded the tones and try
sending them as a numeric page to a friends cell phone but as soon as i do it ,it
says thank you yer page has been sent and not one number shows up. maybe #
is the first dtmf sent... i dunno. the number is: 800-513-0018. anyone know
what this is?

Heh, I typed up a whole message about this then I realized that there was a strong smell of burning rubber somewhere nearby...then the computer shut off.

Hooray for the old Pentium 3 800mhz Gateway that's been stashed in the closet due to bad ram. Now I'm on it and replaced the ram with a bull! /bad joke.

Anyways, on with the post... (btw, sorry for any misspellings. I'm using a tiny, tiny, tiny monitor with a huge resolution. Everything looks like an ant from over here.)

I call these numbers "7-11" numbers. Why? Cause they read out numbers in the following pattern: The first number is always a straight hundred. Like 100 or 200 or 300 or 400. The second number is a 2 digit number. Like forty-four or fifty-seven. This might actually be one whole number like : One hundred forty-four" or it might be two separate numbers "one hundred" AND "forty-four". Then it reads off "7,1,1" and then 7 digits after that. Your number: 800-513-0018

Reads back:

900
44
7,1,1
3,0,6,1,8,5,3

The 44 part changes everytime I call but the 900 is always there. The 711 plus the 7 digits after it remain constant.

There are other numbers like this one:

1-800-649-9097,

100
59
7,1,1
3,2,3,5,2,1,2


1-800-654-7664

300
45
7,1,1
3,0,0,1,6,2,9

I got those 2 from the Volume 14, number 2 (Spring 97) issue of 2600 magazine. Mentions of such numbers pop up at least once every 2 years in the 2600 letter section. For each number the "hundred" number remains constant. 9097 always reads back "100", 7664 always reads back "300" but the number after that always changes. It might be a DNIS number.

Now on to the DTMF tones. The few times that I've decoded the DTMF tones that the numbers produce I've noticed that at least 2 of the touchtones are # tones. That's pretty much all that I have on these numbers. If anybody has more phone numbers like this then please, please, please post them on here.

Now that I'm calling it from a real phone, the touchtones sound normal (I guess our cisco callmanager phones at work don't like the touchtones)...i'll have this mystery solved shortly :)

Yay! We've been wondering what these were for a long time.

I've found one myself, an interesting thing is that these numbers can't be dialed from a payphone (You get that "not available from payphone" intercept); you need to dial them through AT&T to get them from payphones.

If you, Strom, can really tell what these numbers are, all of phreakdom will give you a big, fat, mostly nonsexual hug. I've seen textfiles from the mid-90's where people are analizing these numbers just as we are now, and not comming up with anything. The purpose of these "7-11" numbers is an old and oft-asked question.

800-555-1472 had a very similar effect last time I called it.
BTW greyarea if you SE anything be sure to tell us the method you used, it might be useful in future situationZ. Edited by counterspell

Like I said once before, I heard that these numbers are some kind of Sprint test number. Not sure where I heard that, but a couple of people said that's what they are. I still would like to know for sure though...

OK this is what I could SE lastnight about the mystery number

800-513-;;;; <- masked

Seviced by AT&T
Company purchasing Service =
West Interactive

9910 Maple St 402-571-4579
Omaha,NE 68124

11650 Miracle Hills Dr 402-963-1200
Omaha,NE 68154

The RRN# M016623441853
THe DNIS being Pulsed over by AT&T = 1853

West Interactive is a Telemarketing Company.
They do have a "NOC" if you call one of the above contact numbers and ask for the Helpdesk.However they don't have any idea what the Number is and refered to the Telecom Group.I'm geussing in the 402-963-1xxx range will be intresting numbers such as the NOC and whatever else.

But other than that I'm done,I have alot of other stuff I have to do so I'm geussing its just an VRU of some sort.Don't know what it does.If anyone else finds out more with the info I provided then let me know.I will be consulting with someone else to see what they think as well.Peace
;This has been a T0l0wn3d Production
;heh


Ok I think I got something to make since of this now.

This company does alot of work for AT&T on different IVR shit.Even though AT&T has the Anoucement Group.What I think this is,is a transfer-connect number.Like Example when you cal a IVR and it says Press 1 for this and 2 for that well AT&T brings them on that platform but will transfer to another carrier(eg:MCI)So if you come in the correct trunk group (such as the IVR its for) and choose that option it will transfer-connect the number to its destination.I know its kinda confusing but Ill try to get a better way to explain it.PEace.

but that still does not explain what the guy reading off the numbers and the string of dtmf tones are.

I seriously doubt these numbers have anything to do with a telemarketing company. Edited by Alpha9

Did you read the whole post? or just the top.
At the bottom is a better explaination.

Its probally a transfer-connect number that happens in the background of some option on a IVR somewhere.
But all that info is correct about who owns the number.

Actually, why not call this a 7-11 number? 7,1,1 are the constant digits in all of those numbers.

[quote name='counterspell' date='Apr 9 2005, 11:53 AM'] So it uses these numbers to get sounds for IVRs? [/quote]
no..possibly is a transfer-connect number that will only work if you came thru a certin trunk group.So when you dial an extension off a certin IVR and it would route to another line that is serviced by a different carrier then the one you originally dialed.
