Want to dial into an Step By Step Switch?

19 posts in this topic

ok i just want to start this post off by saying PLEASE do not mess with this in any way that will piss the guy off. Seriously. But for those who wont abuse this.......

a guy on a yahoo forum said he had an old step by step switch actually setup at his house and he would provide the access number if you emailed him! so i emailed him and he emailed me back with this!

217-234-6890 is the access number

#2 will disconnect and return new dial tone

#7 will gracefully disconnect, (or simply hang-up)

Office NXX is 682, connector group is 4XXX (TPL)

Some numbers:

682-4499 connector test

682-4102 1000 cy. tone, (a motor driven unit)

These two numbers typically interfere with the access device's ability

to recognize #2 and #7 due to volume level.

682-4121, -4171 permanent busy

-4785, -4445, -4723 -4945, -4952, -4980, -4930 some working numbers

Attached is the connector record sheets showing all the working

terminal numbers in the office.

375-xxxx routes to an EAS trunk that loops back into the same switch

via repeaters, DX signaling, and incoming selectors. One trunk has a

intentional ground to create a "distant" sound simulating many miles of

cable.

The access number is also used for dial-up access to my ISP and may be

busy a large portion of the time.

he actually also included an excel file attachment that lists the equipment used and what numbers are what. i exported it to html and uploaded it HERE for everyone to check out. yes lines do connect into his house apparently so please do not mess with him and make him shut this down!!

i thought this was really cool so i just wanted to share it with everyone else!! Enjoy! B)

You know that posting the number in a public forum like this will increase the chances of it going down, don't you? I do appreciate the info though.

682-4499  connector test

xx99 is never never never assigned to a step customer, so you'll likely find the same test in every single connector group at xx99.

I can't say I've ever heard anything like that on Evan Doorbell's tapes.

Would I get that from dialing a vacant number? What would be the cause of that noise?

The other things I've gotten were busy signal, and silence.

 

Also, it does operate on MF right?  It seems to respond to 7 dialed MF digits, so I guess it's a dumb question, but I'm just making sure.

By the way, things have changed. the office you come in on on this number is 486. the other offices are 375 and 684 486 is an XY 375 and 684 are steps.

MF? maybe. try 1+ 7 digits (in DTMF) here's a list of numbers you can call:

Probably not. The 375,486, and 684 listings on that website can be dialed on a 7 digit basis from that number.

If you use this stuff, consider the time of day.  The switcher will probably be upset if his phone rings several times in the night, keep that in mind if you decide to dial around/scanning.  Some of the CNET switchers don't mind scanning around.  Some do.  It's like hunting on someone's land without their permission.  They might be fine with it, but if they aren't, make sure you act right.

I might have been a bit to excited and messed up on a few counts, But I will be mindful of this. Sometimes I get overly enthused.
