Welcome to the board, man. Personally, I think it may not be about whether he's far enough into the boonies for the black box to work, I think it can come down to a given country's PSTN. (Public Switched Telephone Network). For example, I remember reading in 2600 that in the Middle East, they still have ops handling all calls. So, of course, you tell the op what number you want, and he or she connects you. Other less developed countries could still be on the old step by step and electromechanical crossbar switching. Actually, I once talked to a guy on a conf in the past who claimed that you had to go through an op for making all calls in the state of Idaho. Can't verify if that's true, but if it is, it figures that It'd be in a middle of nowhere, less populated, more behind the times, kind of state like that. Now watch someone from Idaho pop up next sayin' something like: "Hey d00d, don't be smack talking Idaho! Idaho is all that, and a side of hash browns!". Heh, heh. :D

LebPhreak...do you hear loud clicks and whines after you dial phone calls? If you hear a lot of noise when making calls, then you might be on an older switching system...do you know what type of switching system youre on?

As well, you can get a lot of information from your local 611 techs, if you have X11 dialing services where you are. If you have a tech support number for your phone, you could call them up and, if theyre willing to talk, they might tell you a bit about your telephone system.

Do you have calling features like Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, CID, etc? Just wondering.

Just to mention, in case all those links didn't work (...I didn't check) a black box is basically nothing more than a resistor or potentiometer (properly adjusted) connected on the return path wire (which, here in the US, would be the red wire). I don't know how the color scheme works there, but here, for standard phone cabling it goes like this...

Line 1- Red and Green

Line 2- Yellow and Black

Line 3- White and Blue

Line 4- Orange and Brown

But, please note that for Category 3 and Category 5 and Cat 5e, they have other color schemes. Umm... I think there's 2 other color schemes, and they both involve one wire being a solid color, and the other being a white/solid color variation on the other wire in that same pair. For example, in Category 3, line 1 is Blue and Blue/white stripes. Line 2 is Orange and Orange/white stripes. The number after the "Category" part means how many twists per inch. The more twisted the wire pair, the more slef shielding it is, and the higher the clarity on that line as a result. Of course, this mainly matters when you're transmitting data over phone lines. Examples: Fax, computer modem, CID (Caller ID), etc. Otherwise, for making standard voice phone calls over POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service), the wire won't really need to be anything ultra high grade. The highest grades of twisted copper pair phone cabling are Category 6 and Category 7. Beyond that, I think the only thing higher is fiber op. (Fiber optic). Which is quite expensive to buy, and completely different to install than copper pair phone wire. BTW, a potentiometer, in case you didn't already know, is basically a variable resistor.
