IN THIS VOLUME, WE WILL TALK ABOUT THE
OUTER OPERATORS, THE MOST IMPORTANT
OPERATORS, AND MOST INFORMITIVE BY
FAR. ALSO, LIKE I PROMISED IN THE LAST
VOLUME, WE WOULD TALK MORE ABOUT THOSE
AREA CODE EXCEPTIONS. JUST BEFORE I GO
ON, I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY THANXS
ONCE AGAIN TO THE FOLLOWING FOR THERE
SUPPORT:

JUDGE DREDD
THE WOLF
MYSTIC WARRIOR

---------------------------------------

NOW LET'S GET STRAIGHT TO THE ISSUE.
AS I WAS SAYING IN VOLUME #1, OUTER
OPERATORS ARE IN CHARGE OF CONNECTING
YOU TO ELECTRONIC SWITCHBOARDS. YOU
KNOW, LIKE SAY YOU WANT TO CALL THROUGH
*SPRINT* OR *MCI*, YOU HAVE TO TYPE IN
YOUR 6-8 DIGIT CODE, AND IF YOU JUST
CALLED ANY OLD NUMBER AND PUNCHED IN
YOUR A CODE, THEY OPERATOR WOULD THINK
YOU BELONGED TO A MENTAL INSTITUTE!
NOW, WHEN YOU CALL A SPRINT NUMBER OR
MCI NUMBER, YOU ARE GOING THROUGH AN
OUTER OPERATOR, EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY NOT
KNOW IT. WHEN YOU DIAL THE SPRINT/MCI
NUMBER, YOU ARE REALLY CALLING THE
OUTER OPERATOR, WHO IN TURN CONNECTS
YOU TO THE SWITCHBOARD. YOU SAY, HOLY
SHIT, SHE CAN SEE WHAT I AM DOING, AND
WILL KNOW I AM PHREAKING VIA THE
SPRINT/MCI SWITCHBOARDS THAT A COMPANY
IS RENTING! MY ANSWER: NOPE, SHE CAN'T
SEE NOTHING YOU TYPE OR DO, IN FACT,
SHE DOEN'T EVEN KNOW THE NUMBER YOU
ARE CALLING FROM. THEY YOU SAY, I HAVE
NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. WRONG! THE
OUTER OPERATOR CAN'T TRACE YOU, BUT
THE SWITCHBOARD CAN! THAT IS WHY THERE
IS A RISK CALLING AND HACKING AT
SPRINT/MCI CODES. HERE ARE A FEW HINTS
SO YOU DON'T GET CAUGHT USING
SPRINT/MCI WHEN YOU FINALLY (SIGH) GET
A CODE.

[1] TRY AND FIND OUT WHAT COMPANY'S
    CODE YOU HAVE. THAT WAY, YOU KNOW
    WHAT TO CALL. FOR INSTANCE, IF YOU
    HAVE THE CODE FOR SHOPPERS DRUG
    MART, YOU WOULDN'T CALL SAFEHOUSE
    BBS IN NEW YORK! BUT IF YOU HAD
    THE CODE FOR NATIONAL TELEWORKS
    CORPORATION, IT WOULD MAKE SENSE
    CALLING A BBS.

[2] CALL AT ONLY THE BUSINESS'S HOURS
    OF OPERATION, IT WOULD LOOK STUPID
    AND SUSPICIOUS CALLING AT 3:00 AM
    WHEN THE COMPANY'S OFFICE BUILDING
    IS CLOSED.

[3] NEVER CALL SOMETHING THAT IS
    CONNECTED TO A PHONE COMPANY.
    THAT COULD PROVE TO BE DARING
    AND VERY DANGEROUS.

[4] NEVER CALL FROM A FORTRESS PHONE,
    BECAUSE IF YOU DO, THE VERY TIME
    YOU CONNECT, IT WILL COME UP ON
    AN INTERCEPT OPERATORS COMPUTER
    (READ ABOUT THESE IN VOLUME #1.)


WELL, THAT IS BASICALLY IT ON HINTS,
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER, NEVER DO STUPID
THINGS WHEN CALLING THROUGH SPRINT OR
MCI. YOU WOULD BE PUTTING YOUR
PHREAKING CAREER ON THE LINE.

NOW TO TALK ABOUT THE AREA CODE
EXCEPTIONS I MENTIONED IN VOLUME #1.
HERE IS A DETAILED DEFINITION OF EACH
OF THE AREA NUMBERS THAT I MENTIONED
WERE USED IN ALL STATES AND PROVINCES:


AREA CODE: 510   TWX    (USA)
=---------------------------=

TWX IS A WATTS SYSTEM, USED MOSTLY
BY MA BELL ITSELF. NOT MUCH USE TO US,
UNLESS YOU ARE TOTALLY INTO FINDING
OUT LOCAL AND LONG DISTANCE RATES
TO OTHER COUNTRIES. EXCEPTIONALLY
BORING IN MY OPINION. GTE IS A WATTS
SYSTEM, IF YOU WERE WONDERING.

AREA CODE: 610   TWX    (CANADA)
=------------------------------=

SAME AS U.S.A.'S TWX, EXCEPT IT IS
OR CANADA.

AREA CODE: 700   RESERVED
=-----------------------=

UNKNOWN TO ME. ALL I KNOW, IT IS
NOT USED PRESENTLY, AND IS RESERVED
BY MA BELL FOR LATER USAGE.

AREA CODE: 710   TWX   (USA)
=--------------------------=

ANOTHER STUPID WATTS LINE. NOTHING
TO GET HYPER OVER.

AREA CODE: 800   WATTS LINE
=-------------------------=

THIS WATTS LINE IS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT
KIND OF WATTS LINE. IT IS USED BY
BUSINESS'S FOR THERE OWN CHAINS OF
STORES TO CALL FREE. ALSO, THEY CAN
BE RENTED FOR PUBLIC USAGE, AND ARE
TOLL-FREE. I AM SURE YOU ALL HAVE SEEN
COMERCIALS SAYING CALL: FRED'S HOOKER
SUPPLY, CALL TOLL-FREE 1-800-XXX-XXXX,
OR SOMETHING TO THAT AFFECT.

AREA CODE: 810   DIAL-IT SERVICES
=-------------------------------=

SAME AS 800 LINES EXCEPT IS COST 50
CENTS THE FIRST MINUTE AND THEN 35
CENTS AFTER THAT FOR EACH EXTRA MINUTE.
NOT MUCH ON THIS. IS ONLY IS U.S.A.
I THINK.

AREA CODE: 910   TWX   (USA)
=--------------------------=

UGH, ANOTHER DUMB WATTS LINE. SAME AS
ALL THE OTHER ONES EXCEPT 800,910.



WELL, THIS WRAPS UP ANOTHER VOLUME.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS ONE, AND
LEARNED SOMETHING. THE VOLUMES WILL
GET MORE TECHNICAL AS THEY INCREASE.
HAPPY HACKING, AND LATER....
