7 posts in this topic

FREE calls to Japan with your Verizon Prepaid Long Distance Card through April 10th. Verizon Prepaid is waiving calls to Japan for those who want to get in touch with family and friends who have been affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Verizon Prepaid Phone Card charges for calls placed from the U.S. to Japan will be waived from March 11 until April 10.*

*Payphone surcharges will continue to apply.

Does anybody else have one of these cards? We should get a scan going :) .

fyi, this applies to more than just the prepaid cards. Verizon LD customers get free calling to Japan. I think Sprint and AT&T wireless too.

AT&T LD will give you free calling if you ask them, but only sixty minutes worth.

Hmm... wonder what ranges would be good to scan?

I have been calling different fax machines in NE Japan to hear different intercept recordings. Of course not speaking Japanese hinders this a bit.

I actually had a particularly interesting moment calling +81-22-717-9999. At first, it sounded like an unusual echo test, so I started saying stuff and pressing touchtones for the hell of hearing it echo back from Japan. Then, a conversation between two people in Japanese appears out of the blue. The two of them were both heavily vocoderized, perhaps on satellite phones. One of them happened to press *, so for the sake of experimenting, I pressed it too. And they both vanished. I tried pressing whatever I could, but nothing I could think to try would make whatever this is react again.

Incidentally, I found out later this number is located in Sendai, which is about as close to the epicenter of the quake as you could hope to get. It's very possible that something was going very, very wrong, but it also seems like there'd have to be a damn good reason for them disappearing when I pressed * .

If you want to look for ranges to explore, the best way in my opinion is to get the city code first, and use that in a google search. For example,

599 is the city code for Toba, so if you want to find valid landline ranges there, you'd search for this;

Good luck :) . I'll see what I can dig up myself.

Sendai is very close. I have read that Yamamoto-cho is closer, but it is not as easy to find numbers for this village.
