Some numbers (new)

368 posts in this topic

Scanning some numbers from the payphone directory. Sadly most of them are dead, but they have some weird recordings.

(408) 425-9269 - A weird distorted CBCAD recording. The tones are messed up, and two different people talk on it.

(408) 268-9961 - A really weird CBCAD where the operator seems to be on amphetamines or something

(909) 683-9688 - A deep voice actor sounding CBCAD that is really fancy sounding. Not your typical one here, plus a code at the end

(805) 523-9912   - High pitched CBCAD recording that sounds like helium

I want to say that's AT&T Wireless in some way, shape, or form... Sounds like a recording I've heard before.

Verizon Wireless. Dialed it on my cell phone, and actually got someone live. Heh.

 

When I get home from work today, I'll try it from GV and my WOW! service, just to see if the results are different.

If it's the 'new normal' conf, I've got the info... If not, I'll ping you guys tonight.

 

Got roped into shopping and stuff last night, so I was unable to run my checks. I'll re-confirm my Verizon Wireless call during the course of today, then check the rest when I get home.

From Xfinity: "You've reached voicemail"

From Flowroute: Same

 

Both very clear.

So I tried making a few calls to Saskatoon. Your mileage may vary with this. Try a couple different carriers if your first choice doesn't work.

 

306-958

 

9999 - rec, "You have reached HPR switch SKTNSK0105T, Saskatoon 5, Sasktel. This is a recording. 306-5T."
9998 - rec, "You have reached the Saskatchewan virtual node. SASKSKXN01T (possibly D?). Saskatoon 05."
9997 - rec, "The new area code for the number you are calling is 250. This call cannot be completed. Please hang up and redial using area code 250."
9996 - rec, "There is a problem in completing your call as dialed. Please check the number and dial again. Or call your operator for assistance. This is a recording. 306-5T."
9995 - Same as 9996

 

1105 - 105-type test

 

1111 - 102-type test

 

1113 - rec, "You have dialed a number to which long distance charges apply. Please dial one or zero and the area code before the number you are calling."
1114 - Silence?
1115 - Long silence to busy via SS7
1118 - Sasktel business communication center queue

 

909-382-0010 - Frontier 0 op forward

909-381-0001 - GTD-5 dialtone. For the life of me, I can't figure out what this thing is listening for; it waits forever, and gives a CBCAD to pretty much anything.

909-381-0004 - This is the standard GTD-5 permanent signal announcement for most of the west coast switches. If you haven't heard it before, it's worth a listen.

So recently, Gewt pointed me to some strange wind measuring thingies that sit on phone lines:

 

505-243-8664 - Other Windtalker
408-776-0101 - Windtalker
505-891-1733 - Windtalker
888-700-9279 - Windtalker
209-826-9019 - Windtalker
907-694-3017 - Windtalker
650-877-3585 - Windtalker replacement? Uses DECTalk

 

Here's the closest thing to a manual: http://www.litek.com/WT4MAN.htm

 

314-658-1205 - Thingie on a Definity in an AT&T Toll office. 121T/HIllsboro more specifically. It answers with three * tones, and will eventually flash if you just sit there. A modem comes on out of nowhere (which will prompt for a station number of some sort if you connect) eventually. If it hangs up on you, you'll get some hold music before it returns you back to the thing that sends three * tones.

That one's phone line sounds like it's picking up a radio station!

Either that or I got a really bad trunk to Alaska.

 

EDIT: 650-877-3585 is an ATIS system for an airport. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automatic_terminal_information_service)

Interestingly, it seems that most of the ATIS systems in use at major airports use DECtalk.

617-534-0000 - Voicemail unavailable recording. 15A announcement machine (the kind the 5ESS uses) on a DMS-100?

Those last two I'm really scratching my head on.

9936 doesn't seem to respond to 3-column DTMF. Maybe A/B/C/D or MF might do something? I would try it but I don't have access to a silver box.

I get the impression this is probably a dialtone into some test machine or a backdoor into a PBX of some sort and needs some sort of alternate method to break the tone and give access.

It also just repeats for me and doesn't time out. Pauses for a couple seconds then repeats the cycle indefinitely.

No dice :( .

Maybe! I wonder if a slow sweep tone or something would be in order. The pause/repeat thing sounds like it may be your long distance carrier changing routes. If you're okay with casual dialing (should be safe; I'd be sure, but I don't think it supes), try seeing if AT&T or MCI do the same. I'd be really disappointed if it was the case, but I was thinking this might just be the Nortel announcement card making that tone; they sometimes end calls with that same (or at least a similar) cause code.

but I was thinking this might just be the Nortel announcement card making that tone;



"Filler" noise to jam the trunk so kids can't make a party line on it by yelling through the crosstalk?

113 - rec, "The number you have dialed is a party on your own line. Please hang up and allow the phone to ring several times before lifting the handset to talk."



"Dig this timely announcement for the 2010s!"

I duno. Something about these modern-sounding announcers doing old-fashioned announcements like that just seems.... really wrong.
