new CPC payphones

21 posts in this topic

Anyone know what this "Data Link" thing is one some new CPC payphones?

I was walking around down by a Tim Hortons a couple blocks from my house, and I notcied this CPC payphone with a telephone jack in it. You know, the kind of jack that you would plug a phone into, like a wall jack. Anyways, there was this jack, right on the phone. I assume that it was a jack for a laptop, like for dialup internet, or something. has anyone ever seen this?

Can this jack be used as an extension?

And one more question that relates to the first question.

Has CPC fixed the COCOT line-seizing exploit on the new(er) CPC phones? Or do the new CPC phones jsut all disable the handset as well as the mouthpeice?

This gay CPC phone disables the keypad for all calls, even local calls. I dont know what the hell was the problem, but after I dialed I couldnt get the keypad to do anything. And the handset is disabled until someone picks up on the othe end, so forget calling you vms numbers!

Anyone else ever seen these phones?

the exploit is pretty simple you dial a 1800 number thats out of service and
wait until that pretty little voice stops talking and the phone (if your lucky ) will not sieze the line you then can dial any number with a tone dialer . i haven't had too much luck with this technique but apparently it does work with some of the shittier cocots . i'm pretty sure that you can't use pay phone data jacks as an extension , but i haven't tried so i don't really know. for the authoritative source on cpc and the unrestircted line exploit you should go to www.nettwerked.net

Yeah, I got some answers. It was an Elcotel Eclipse, and theclone (nettwerked.net) wrote a whole file about it. A manual of sorts. The line-seizing sploit does work on it.

I was at a rest station on the parkway and I saw a sigh that directs you to the payphone and "data port" are there where regular payphones and the "data port" was just a wall jack, no pay just plug in and dial. I just wish i didn't leave all my stuff for this situation in the car.

Ive opened up some western electric payphones. The wire comes in the back, then they have to strip the wire, and secure it in. I've never found a actualy jack, inside or out.
