What I’ve found so far are GV accounts. There are tons more because these are GV exchanges. Here they are:

720-288-

0000 “could not complete your call” Cuts off at beginning of it

0001 GV

0002 GV

0005 GV

0006 GV

0008 GV

0010 GV

0011 GV

0012 GV

0013 “could not complete your call” Cuts off at beginning of it

0014 GV

0015 some dudes voicemail answers with name of “Chef” and then his name.

Tempted me to say “Children. Would you like some salty balls?” (South

Park reference)...lol. :P

0017 GV

0021 GV

0022 GV

i think that i probably have one of the best google voice numbers - 313-IH4X0RZ.. too bad its in some other area code (MI)

i should post the only voicemail that must have been a wrong number - since whoever called thought they hung up, and there is rotary pulses halfway thru the message, then ringing... so perhaps they switch hooked over to 3 way calling accidentally while leaving a voicemail...

Anyone ever heard a ringback tone like this? The whole hundreds block appears to go to this system, which is almost definitely a PBX.

did not hear a strange ring back tone with google voice, then a fax machine answered after several rings...

....

dialing direct i did hear strange ring back tone but the fax did not answer the line...

EDIT 1:

TNID.US shows CNAM as R&L Development

windstream communications as the PSTN

equipment location as NWAXPAXNDS0

http://tnid.us/lookup/7246683110/

EDIT 2:

telcodata.us shows the switch as a DMS10

and it appears to only serve one exchange...

http://www.telcodata.us/view-switch-detail-by-clli?clli=NWAXPAXNDS0

this seems to be as close as i can get with street view - looks more like a house than a CO - should be the building in the back ground next to the pick up truck...

http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=40.401634,-79.423731&spn=0.1,0.1&t=k&q=40.401634,-79.423731

so not sure if DSL reports has the right address listed: 507 Lees Ln

New Alexandria, PA 15670

http://www.dslreports.com/coinfo/clli/NWAXPAXN

EDIT 3:

according to telcodata.us it looks like there are just 25 of these DMS10 things in operation

http://www.telcodata.us/search-switches-by-switch-type?type=DMS10

unless i am missing something - umm actually i think i might be missing something since THIS switch is not on that list of 25...

This search string will get you the rest of the DMS10's:

http://www.telcodata.us/search-switches-by-switch-type?type=northern+telecom+DMS10

To clarify, that's not the normal ring for the office. I don't know of any ringing numbers except for businesses, but "normal" lines are regular DMS10 ring. There's still a pay phone in service, but I can't remember the number.

It looks like a few DMS-100s bled into there. For what it's worth, here's the source I usually use for switch searches. Someone told me the guy who maintains it gets all his data from a copy of LERG.

There's a lot of weird stuff out there, but this without a doubt is one of the weirdest rings I think I've ever heard. For some reason it'll sometimes make a loud hummy noise, and go to a normal sounding ring. Whenever you transfer a call from the auto-attendant (it answers on 3199), it seems like the normal ring is always there.

did not hear a strange ring back tone with google voice, then a fax machine answered after several rings...

I'm pretty sure someone has explained this at one point or another.

602-630-0002 - Centurylink internal VMS. This seems to cover the entire Qwest region; you can find DIDs for it in the middle of Minnesota, like 651-312-5679. 555 gets you a directory.

i can understand that the strange ring is not heard from google voice, because i assume google voice is providing a false ring until supervision - one of the reasons it is probably not possible to call into many test numbers with google voice..... but why did a fax machine answer when called with google voice, but not when i dialed in directly?

I dunno, that's something I honestly can't answer. The PBX is treating that extension a little differently right now. Sometimes the extension will ring normally for a long time, and the IVR will pick up and very quickly hang up on you. Other times, it'll pick up quickly and give you an after hours recording. My only guess is it might be changing it's behavior based on what trunk you come in on in both situations. I got both using Google Voice and my standard long distance carrier.

303-494-4774

This number still works and here's the info on what it is and why it was made:

NIST UPDATE - Physics Laboratory Articles February 5, 1996

TIME AND FREQUENCY

"At the Asterisk, the Time Will Be ..."

NIST recently upgraded the equipment that provides its Automated Computer Time Service, or ACTS, for setting clocks in computers. Computers (and other equipment) can be programmed to call (303) 494-4774 to receive a signal that contains the time of day. The service now has 12 incoming lines (in rotary), and now PC-based servers can accept calls at speeds up to 9,600 baud. These changes should provide smoother service to a broader variety of user modems. ACTS receives more than 9,000 calls a day on average but can handle more than 28,000 at peak usage. Software to use ACTS is available for $45 by ordering Standard Reference Material 8101b from the NIST SRM Program, (301) 975-6776, fax: (301) 948-3730, e-mail: srminfo@nist.gov. NIST also provides a similar service via various servers on the Internet and receives over 50,000 "hits" a day, a number that doubles every two months or so. (ftp to "time.nist.gov" to obtain the free downloadable software and documentation; log in as "ANONYMOUS" and use your Internet address as the password. Change directory to "/pub/daytime" and read the file "readme.daytime." The ACTS software is also available free at this site: change directory to "/pub/acts" and read the file "readme.acts"). World Wide Web surfers can see a printout of the exact time at http://www.nist.time.gov/, but this will not reset your computer's clock. And what about that "asterisk" in the title? The NIST computer systems use an asterisk as the on-time marker, analogous to the tone transmitted in NIST's familiar time signals heard world-wide on shortwave radio and on the telephone at (303) 499-7111.

most people find the numbers by scanning... just dialing a block of numbers and documenting what is found..

what ever numbers that are listed on this thread, most of them have a description of what they are used for, or why the poster found them interesting... otherwise if they do not know why a certain number that they dialed behaves the way that it does, they may ask for other people's opinion on what the line might be used for, or what it is connected to at the other end...

many people do not think that it is a good idea to scan numbers consecutively... i am really not sure if that is a problem or not, not like your intentions could not be determined by a spreadsheet of your outgoing calls... but most people recommend to randomize your scanning...

depending on what you are looking for would depend on where you started scanning... if you were looking for test numbers in a certain exchange, you would probably start scanning NPA-NXX-9900 thru NPA-NXX-9999 and NPA-NXX-0000 thru NPA-NXX-0099 since that is where many of the test numbers are located in the US telephone system.

if you were looking for different numbers for a larger company, you would look up their main number, then scan around in the thousand block that the main number and/or fax line is located on... ex: if you want to try to find other stuff from a company whose main number is 1-212-555-1212 you would probably want to scan from 1-212-555-1000 thru 1-212-555-1999

Interesting payphone on EWCD switch (non digital, no dtmf and CID), this line is VLF with SSB so sounds very nice

What mean VLF and SSB?. HF link?

Thanks in advance!!!

just a guess... could be wrong... VLF - very low frequency SSB - single side band HF - high frequency

Yeah, i know the acronyms as i have been an ham for too long :). I was mainly asking if the line was some kind of phone patch or such?. Is interesting to see a phone through air these days. From time to time could be heard in hf some phone links but unfortunately, they aren't too long to exploit hehe.

found a scan that was done in 2009....

was not going to bother posting anything about it, until I noticed this: 516-670-9901 - dial tone

NOTE: I did not verify that all of these numbers still do the same thing that they did in 2009 before posting this.

anything that was labeled as either carrier, fax, data or some other variation is listed as carrier/fax? on this list, because the remote equipment has not been verified (and like i said, i did not recheck this list in entirety) I did listen to most of the error recordings posted below, because they sounded interesting... most of the numbers left out were either verification lines, VMB, PBX, NIS, RNA or for some reason or another not worth typing out, however if you want the whole 3,000 numbers, I Could always do a spreadsheet, but i don't see the point, perhaps just a spreadsheet of working numbers... come to think of it, we should set up a google doc file to add numbers to that everyone can edit...

the scan consists of 718-NXX-9901, 212-NXX-9901 and 516-NXX-9901

most of these numbers are just verification lines, but there are some interesting things:

in 718-NXX-9901:

408, 490, 501, 502, 503, 505, 506, 507, 508, 510, 512, 513, 514, 515, 517, 518, 519, 521, 524, 529, 530, 532, 537, 538, 539, 541, 544, 547, 553, 559, 560, 565, 566, 567, 568, 569, 570, 572, 578, 579, 586, 587, 588, 590, 594, 595, 597, 599, 600, 602, 603, 605, 608, 609, 610, 611, 612, 613, 618, 675, 701: all provide some kind of tone

391: fax/carrier?

425: carrier/fax?

724: 2 beeps

757: tone? carrier?

907: strange NIS recording

I guess all of the tone lines no longer work, i tried a random 2 or 3 and they rang to VM..

in the 212-NXX-9901:

202: carrier/fax?

216: carrier/fax?

217: carrier/fax?

219: (after several rings) strange tones sounds like some kind of alarm....

250: strange ringing tone

251: "hang up now" then disconnects

255: strange recording "due to year 2000 testing..."

258: carrier/fax

306: "we're sorry due to telephone co facility trouble your call CBC @ this time"

314: carrier/fax

322: carrier/fax

383: "the line that you are using can only dial within your organization"

385, 435: "R E 2 channel 15..."

387: beeps? carrier? fax?

443: NYU VMB

480: carrier/fax (unsupervised?)

482: carrier/fax (unsupervised?)

484: cisco user VM system

495: carrier/fax (unsupervised?)

507: fax? tone then quiet

571: "R E 2 channel 15...."

572: fax/carrier

590: "the # you are trying to reach is being checked for trouble please try your call again later"

627: "due to area code change.....1 + new 631 area code +........"

658: carrier/fax

671: NIS or changed to a different area code

688: DMTF then silent

728: carrier/fax?

739: carrier/fax?

756: carrier/fax?

757: "we're sorry but since you did not select a long distance carrier.... ny telephone"

766: "R E 2 channel 15..."

790: carrier/fax?

798: NIS or changed area code

812: carrier/fax

824: "you have reached a # that can not be reached from your calling area"

872: carrier/fax?

881: carrier/fax?

905: long ring

937: "we're sorry due to tech. difficulties your call CBC...."

960: "due to an area code change.... 1+718 before the number"

963: carrier/fax?

981: carrier/fax?

onto the 516-NXX-9901:

255: dial tone then busy

345: loud tone

355: carrier/fax?

403: "enter your authorization code now"

484: "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 telephone # please try your call again"

558: carrier/fax

621: "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 telephone # please try your call again"

625: "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 telephone # please try your call again"

626: "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 telephone # please try your call again"

670: dial tone - this is the number that made me post all the interesting notes i found from this scan...

686: "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 telephone # please try your call again"

750: carrier/fax?

837: carrier/fax?

839: pager?

875: strange busy signal tone - does not sound like a busy, but not a reorder either??

891: pager?

896: carrier/fax?

908: carrier/fax?

I found myself in front of a payphone in AC 845 a few days ago, and noticed that it was a Verizon phone. The repair bureau number listed was 890-6611. This was the same number for the repair bureau back in the 1980s. Interesting because exchange 914-890 was used for NYNEX internal stuff back in the day, and it looks like 20+ years later some things haven't changed.

yea, the 890 exchange at least in 718/212/516 is all internal verizon numbers... 890-6611 replaced 611 a while ago, not sure if they ever went back to 611 or not... but now 800-verizon has replaced the 890 number at least last time i tried to call one of the numbers, i think it was the business office 890-1550 that was disco...

i can not remember if i have any notes on an 890 scan, if not sounds like a decent project to look into..
