  1. A few years ago in my area, Verizon re-standardized as many switches as they could with new 959-111x codes. Such as 959-1114 for ANAC, and 959-1113 for ringback on DMS100 and DMS10 switches. To use this code, dial 959-1113-NXX-XXXX, (where NXX-XXXX is the number you're calling from), which is a total of 14 digits. This is now the longest ringback number I've ever encountered.
  2. A couple more recordings showed up on Phone Trips this weekend: Tidewater telephone company, part 5 (NX2 in Hague, VA) CX-1000 all relay system in Benson, VT.
  3. I searched for ITE4 and mostly found college web sites explaining phone features. This Site (RPI) has sections for the ITE4 and for analog phones, explaining all the * and # coded features. The difference between the digital ITE4 phone and an analog phone is that the 4 special buttons are replaced with flashing the hookswitch and dialing * codes. The college I went to (WSU) offers similar information. This other site (U of MN) even mentions the #*112 and #*113 codes.
  4. This sounds very much like the PBX used at my college. Mine had ITE4/12/12SD phones, and phrases before the dialtone if certain features were activated. The PBX switch was called the Intecom E. My college put the ITE4 digital phone in the residence hall rooms, so I had a phone with 4 special function buttons, and did not hear touch tones when dialing, just short beeps. The voice mail system was Octel. As for codes to try dialing, I won't repeat the many manuals found online for the basic features, but there are some interesting codes that start with #* out there. #*112 was the ringer test number. #*113 was the number readback service #*119 would tell you what circuit your line came out of. Other *#1xx codes would say a few numbers, but I did not know what they were for. #*200 to about #*220 would provide all the various dialtones, ring tones, busy tones, and some special dial tones with words and phrases. You can actually cycle through the tones once you have dialed a #*2xx number by re-dialing the last 2 digits. Invalid codes will give a reorder, and *#204 was a milliwatt test tone, which was impossible to break out of from an analog phone. I have a few recording fragments of this system that I could post if you want to hear them.
  5. The streaming episode was cut off about 5 hours into it. (11:35 PM PST)
  6. Now available at Phone Trips: Kenly and Clayton, NC steps, parts 1 and 2. Tidewater Virginia phone trips, parts 1 and 2. It's almost 2 hours of new recordings.
  7. I'll be going again this year. I will get in to Las Vegas on the 2nd, and leave on the 6th.
  8. Bug Report: The uploading of new pictures still doesn't work. Also, attempting to edit a picture causes the picture to go away completely. Feature Requests: 1. The ability to edit "related pictures." Currently, they are unchangeable once uploaded, so if I make a typo in the description or choose the wrong portrait/landscape option, I can't fix it. 2. The ability to change the password I use to log in to the site.

  11. Notepad worked OK with letters A-F, but Firefox kept going to the menus if I hit B,D,E, or F. Wordpad interprets the keys after the + as decimal, not hexadecimal. So Б, which was Alt,+0411 becomes Alt,+1041 in Wordpad. Weird.
  12. The last method does work for me, if you type the UTF16 codes in the following way: Hold down an Alt key, press and release the + key on the numpad, then type the 4 character UTF16 code you want, then finally let go of the Alt key. Using that method, and Character Map to get the UTF16 codes, I was able to type this: БИНРЕВ So, for that first Б, I held down an Alt key, then typed +0411 on the numpad, then I let go of the alt key. Since these codes are hexadecimal, you'll have to reach over to the main part of the keyboard for letters A-F. You can also use 0-9 from the main part of the keyboard. The + key, however, has to be the one on the numpad. Also, according to this site I found from a search engine, if this method still doesn't work, you may have to edit your registry and add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Input Method\EnableHexNumpad with a value of 1.
  13. The cutover has happened, sometime between 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm CDT, so that means no more N2 carrier.
  14. Dial *#62. The phone should say "Dollar Dollar" and then 10 more numbers. The first 4 numbers are the most important, they are the major version number. The rest are minor version numbers.
  15. It is an Elcotel pay phone.
