This technically isn't a PSTN number, but I thought I'd share it anyway since it made me laugh. 317-3999 on the MCI Vnet network will get you a recording from a German call center. The music bed on there is so eighties it hurts.

 

312-924-9925 - "Your intra-LATA toll provider is SBC Local Exchange Carrier or a reseller of the SBC Local Exchange Carrier's network."

503-654-9900 - Synthesized voice, "AM transmitter. Please enter access code"

the AM transmitter number now goes to a weird static. interesting.

Nothing special here, just two error messages and a handful of time and temerature numbers that are still working..

 

I know I already posted this number forever ago, but since it's relevant, I thought I might post it again since it's still awesome/funny.

 

435-257-5141 - Holy crap, it's a DATU doing time! laugh.gif What's interesting is that they have another machine running, in case this one is busy.

 

585-974-1616 - Rochester, NY time

702-844-xxxx - Nevada Time/temp (ETC)

907-852-0000 - Barrow, AK Weatherfone. It'll tell you how many hours of daylight they'll have.

325-597-0212 - Brady, TX Time & Temp

520-387-8463 - Ajo, AZ time (Innovative Systems AP)

213-226-9969 - Here's a time/temperature number for Oklahoma! On...a Paetec switch in Los Angeles? :huh:

 

the AM transmitter number now goes to a weird static. interesting.

 

Huh, it was busy when I tried it.

 

510-238-0000 - "Please enter the five digit telephone number to forward followed by your PIN number."

419-724-9949 - rec, "We're sorry, the number you have dialed has been temporarily disconnected. Thank you for using the Buckeye Telesystem network."

419-724-9986 - Buckeye Telesystem employee VMB

 

EDIT: Sorry xhausted, I didn't see your question. Yeah, I think all Sensaphones tell you to have a good day before they hang up.

310-347-3277

"id number 1 all channels are normal..(tone) channel 1 normal channel 2 normal channel 3 normal channel 4 normal... (tone) -(repeats 3x).... goodbye"

it appears that it is from some bakery... possibly some type of monitoring system?

 

I ran across one of these this evening at 352-795-0029, it does appear to be a monitoring system.  More specifically, a Catalyst Voice Alarm Monitoring System.

 

You may call the Catalyst RTU at any time from any telephone. The product will wait the configured
number of rings before answering and beginning a voice status report. The status report starts with the Unit
ID message, followed by a request for entry of any touch-tone digit. Entering a tone will establish that this
is to be a voice mode session, rather than a data mode (modem) session.
 
Exception: If PINs (Personal Identification Numbers) have been configured, the RTU will require entry of
a valid PIN before proceeding.
 
Next will follow any special warning messages, followed by a channel status report. The channel status
report will report only the channels whose alarm state is "other than normal". If there are no channels
whose alarm state is "other than normal," then channel status report will simply consist of a statement that,
"All Channels Are Normal."

More info about it here: Quick Start Guide and Operator's Manual.

Thanks for finding that out. There's what looks to be an older model of the same thing in some tiny (quite literally a ghost town) CO; 831-389-4504. I've wondered for a while what that was.

 

EDIT: Another number. I didn't feel up to making a new post.

 

248-574-7000 - rec, "The international number dialed is not available on your current calling plan. If you believe this to be an error, please contact customer service at 877-877-4799, and reference 000-000-0000-44. We apologize for the inconvenience."

This is my first post on here so...

 

713-278-4926 Rings 2 times at a short duration and then gives you a softer dial tone. I don't know how to operate it. Comes from a 5ESS "HSTNTXSU"

 

281-464-1499 Gives you a modern announcement ("We're sorry. Your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please check the number and dial again. Or, call your operator to help you. This is a recording.") then transfers you to the "All circuits busy" announcement from magnetic drum ("We're sorry. All circuits are busy now. Will you please try your call again later.") This is from a 1AESS in Houston.

 

EDIT 16 April 2014 @ 18:49 CDT/UTC-5

 

I have a recording of 464-1499 if you guys here want to hear...

(281) 464 appears to be an interesting exchange.

took a quick look around and got the following things:

464-9999 gave a milliwatt

464-9998 gave silence and then reorder after a minute or two.

464-9997 gave a cool-sounding reorder

464-9996 rang

that's all I dialed. maybe someone should do a scan.

I hate to be the one to deliver bad news here, but that isn't actually a 1AESS anymore. It's a Nortel MG9000 remote hosted off a CS-2000 (basically, newer generation of DMS-100/200 hardware), which also serves as a tandem for the area. I dunno how that differentiates it from a full scale end office, but that's what AT&T says.

 

https://ebiznet.att.com/networkreg/regulatory_documents/ATT20121031L.1_Web.doc

 

800-594-2090 - Clear Channel feed of some sort from WOAI. This doesn't seem to be relaying local things, like top of the hour IDs or locally played commercials. Maybe syndication related?

800-594-2089 - KRPT feed. This one is more normal.

888-212-0019 - Weird IVR.

 

I dunno why, I've been on kind of a toll-free stint lately.

EDIT2: Is it normal to hear poor-quailty intercept recordings for NEW switching equipment?

 

Well, yes and no. The announcement machines in a lot of the older equipment aren't really all that different from the newer stuff. The big differences are that the new switches are a lot more likely to come with stock recordings that go unchanged, and that announcements are much easier to directly upload to the switch. A lot of the older announcements are recorded by playing audio into a phone line. Most switchmen don't care about making a clean recording or setting the levels properly or anything, so what you'll get is all over the map.

 

The all circuits busy recording you heard is a bit of a different story. It actually isn't coming from the MG9000, the switch is tearing down the call with a cause code saying that all circuits are busy. The 5ESS you're on reacts by playing it's own all circuits busy recording.

 

For the longest time, I thought there was some steel drum or something turning away in the CO too, but it's actually a solid state digital machine. There's one a lot like it on eBay right now; http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lucent-15A-Advanced-Digital-Announcement-System-/331177072329?pt=US_Network_Switch_Modules&hash=item4d1bb116c9

 

The machine has really noisy amplifiers, generates a lot of crosstalk between the announcement trunks, and more often then not, the master tapes from the studio actually are tape. There's a couple Global Crossing tandems where you'll even hear the 1 khz test tone from the master tape bleeding onto the announcements.

 

EDIT: Switchhook dialing! You, sir, are awesome.

That would explain why the "all circuits busy" message sounded more dirtier than I expected. So as I dialed 464-3169 in the 281 code, is that routed to my local C.O or coming directly from the MG9000?

About your point about most switchmen not caring about the recording... that part may be true.

 

"14042002" Sequence:14042002.MP3

281-4643169

713-2631499

713-2781888(#) (short breath from my mic then muted) SHORT

^redial (much more longer.)

 

"14042003" Sequence:14042003.MP3

278-1888# (7-digit eradicated since '99)

281-4641499(for reference)

832-4421111(local toll call from the 713-278 prefix... I don't have local toll or long distance service) NOTICE how dirty it sounds compared if I added "1" before the number and that the S.I.T sounds like it was 'clipped'.

"1"212-2222222 (much more clearer isn't it?)

 

ANYWAY, i have a number for testing switchboards. You should know what my original area code is if you live in houston.

977-5100 ("Phone System. This is  XXXXX.")

Wow, that IVR I posted last time died FAST. A lot faster then I've seen anything else die, actually. I guess someone is paying pretty close attention to it.

 

877-733-5250 - Verizon Dallas NOC. They'll let you reach any extension you want via the main manu. Since this is a NOC, there's obviously nothing interesting on that whole PBX.

 

 

 

So as I dialed 464-3169 in the 281 code, is that routed to my local C.O or coming directly from the MG9000?

 

Everything before the ringing is coming from the MG9000.

 

 

 

ANYWAY, i have a number for testing switchboards. You should know what my original area code is if you live in houston.

977-5100 ("Phone System. This is  XXXXX.")

 

Assuming I'm getting the area code right, I'm getting some guy's cell phone :| .

 

EDIT: For anybody interested in what that IVR was saying, I did find a transcript. Maybe we can shed some light on why it's been disconnected.

I don't think so because I found that number in a business where I had access to their phone room. They were served by a Panasonic KX-TD1232 with a TVS200 and had 6 C.O trunks with hunt capabilities. It was listed next to their 66 block. I can't take photos though if you need some proof because it involves sensitive materials.

 

EDIT: I managed to snag a photo. 18 May 2014 at 00:49 CDT.

Please keep in mind that their PBX system was installed in late 1993... about 6 years before mandatory 10 digit dialing.

319-854-9999 - Room monitor of some kind. It sounds like it's in an air duct.

405-382-9152 - Strange sounding tone with milliwatt timing. For some reason, AXE-10s always have lots of weird tones in them, and this is no exception.

Thoughtphreaker : Very interesting stuff their.. I listened to 3198549999 for a few mins.. I wonder if it is either a unmanned central office or some type of smaller telephone building that someone an dial into and listen to see what a particular tech is doing? That number above is owned by Springville Co-Op Telephone..

 

I also must say that 405-382-9152 is a much more pleasant milliwatt tone than the normal milliwat tone!

I've got one of those at my local AXE10. 959-1050.

 

Milliwatt is at 959-1020, (102 type test) so would that make that a 105 type test?

800-263-8071 - "This pant live toll free number is not active." followed by 10 digit DNID and then 10 digit ANI

All numbers here are in 608-282.

 

0000 - <click> "Thank you for using Midplains"

0005 - click + warbly continuous 0 in DTMF

0087 - Deep voice, "Due to heavy calling, all our operators are busy. If your call is an emergency, please hang up and dial 0 for assistance."

0079 - Real, actual spoofing, courtesy of AT&T! A recording similar to 0087 will play twice, and then send you to an operator. The call will come to her with an ANI fail, and she'll manually identify with whatever number (within reason; it should probably be an ex-Ameritech number in the 608 or a nearby NPA) she gives you. The usual special needs/operator privileges/etc jig will suffice to have a toll-free call connected. Charge ANI will be sent as 608, and CPN will get sent as whatever you tell her.

 

EDIT: I almost forgot to mention,the reason this spoofing trick works is because AT&T issued a fix to their TOPS tandems to stop operator assisted calls from producing ANI fails. The irony of it is beautifiul. None of the other LECs (to my knowledge) use this fix.

I tried to use the ANI fail and got the following results:

 

call #1: operator looked at her terminal for a minute then forwarded my call to directory assistance.

call #2: told op I was trying to make a person to person call, she transfered me to a supervisor who asked for the number I was calling from and calling to, which LD carrier I wanted to use, then my call d/c'd.

 

Anyone else have a better experience?

I think most LD carriers won't let calls through, even 0+, without charge ANI being sent forward. I could be wrong though, some of the carriers complain about losing a lot of money to phantom traffic.

 

If there's anything out of the ordinary you'd like to ask them to do, I happen to have the TOPS operator manual right here. Their training - if not straight from the book is probably pretty similar. The console they're at certainly is. http://thoughtphreaker.omghax.ca/files/PDFs/NT-TOPS_Operator_Manual.pdf

Automated Weather Observation System, for airports. Here's a few interesting ones;

 

406-375-9149 - This one is served by an AXE-10. And has some weird pseudo-PBX arrangement with an off the shelf answering machine.

760-767-3308 - Really old model in the middle of nowhere

773-601-8921 - TTS model
