Intro:
Have you ever wanted to hack your very own voice mail box ? Well with
this file
may your dreams come true. now let's get into the shit

Alright if you don't know what all the diffrent voice mail systems
sould like

Here's a few examples:
Skytel vmb: 800-520-5458
Octel/Aspen: 800-487-6245
Meridian: 800-422-6245
Audix: 877-999-6245
Message Center: 800-317-6245
Phone Mail: 800-520-9666

Here's the defult code to vms
Audix: Box number
Aspen/Octel: Box Number,0000-1111-2222-ect-,1234
Meridian: Box Number
Phone Mail: Box Number,1234,9999
Message Center: None (no password)
Skytel: last 4 of box number,9999,1234
Partner Mail vs: 1234,9999


Here's A few ways on how to get voice mail systems:
Scanning (best way)
From Another Phreak (Okay)
Off The Internet (lamor)

Now if you scan yourself you will have very good chances to get some
voice mail boxes.
Getting a VMS from a fellow phreak is alright unless they gave it out
to everyone and there mom
and if you get them off the net chances are they will be not in
service or something else that is no
where near a vms (what the hell am i talking about oh well) and you
would also be a 31337 14m0r.

Alright now you got yourself a voice mail system by now or at lease
should.

Logging In to voice mail boxes
Audix: *8
Aspen/Octel: #
Meridian: *81
Message Center: *
Phone Mail # (i may be wrong)

Findig A valid box:
Start with 100 and 999 if it has 3 digit boxes
If it's 4 digit boxes try 1000 and 9999
if both of them don't work try 200,300,400,ect,ect, or
2000,3000,4000,ect,ect
if you still have no luck on finding a box there's two things you can
do quit and me a lamor or
be a tru phreak and scan the whole system.

Okay, let's say you found a valid box. Let's say it's box 2600 and
2610 is not a valid box number,
but box 2630 is Your going to want to do some basic scanning to find a
range of boxes. Scan
2610 and below (make sure you note everything) then scan 2610 and up
and 2630 and up this should give you an
idea on how the boxes are mapped out on Voice Mail Systems.

Finding A Vacant Box: 
Once you have found some valid boxes, start scanning for vacant boxes.
A vacant Box is a box
that where created by the system aministrator for future use, or boxes
that have been abandoned
when an employee was fired,transferred,ect. Call the system After
Hours and enter in some of the
valid box numbers you wrote down earlier when scanning

You Should Be Listening For a greeting that sound like:
A: Box "xxx" please leave a message
B: Box xxx
C: Leave A message After the tone "Beep"

IF you come acrossed a greeting recorded by a human assume the box is
"in use" Never ever
take over a box that is in use by an employee.

Some More Defult Codes:
123,321
1234,4321
box number plus 1 example 26001
1 plus box number 12600

I'm in now what:

1st See if there are any messages (if there are, listen to them. If
the newest message is a month
or older i would say it's safe to take) Also some system aministrator
will send messages to every
box on that system

2nd  Change The Passcode And if you want the outgoing greeting 

Once you've successfully hacked a box, become familiar with it's
features. Some Voice Mail Systems
have features like make distribution list,message notification and
other 31337 features

More info On Vms:


 The purpose of this section is to briefly touch on some of the
voicemail
systems you are likely to encounter. I will provide general background
on each system, as well as default passwords if they are available.

Alltel - This is a voicemail system for cellular telephone users only.
         From your cellular phone, dial #99 and "SEND". Enter your
security
         code, and you are in. All vacant boxes will have a default
password
         of 9999. Alltel voicemail has several desirable features
including
         the ability to change your security code, record a personal 
         greeting, create a "greeting schedule", and forward messages
to
         other users.

A.S.P.E.N. - Most people will agree that A.S.P.E.N. (Automated Speech 
             Network) is one of the best voicemail systems. To find a
vacant
             box, scan some common three digit numbers until you hear
an
             automated voice say "You entered XXX. Please leave a
message at
             the tone...BEEP". Hit # and enter the box number when
prompted.
             A friendly female voice will discuss some of the better 
             features of the system and ask for your "temporary
password".
             The password is usually four digits. It is probably one
of
             those on my default list. Features to look out for
include
             the ability to control message playback speed, message 
             forwarding, and "envelopes", extended absence greetings,
             the awesome ability to create and moderate "guest boxes"
for
             friends, and distribution lists.

Audex Voice Power - From the onset, Audex systems are difficult to
identify.
                    When calling a suspect number, hit *7. It should
respond
                    with "Welcome to Audex Voice Power, please enter 
                    extension and # sign". Box numbers are three or
                    four digits and usually start with a 2. The
password
                    will be the same as the box number. You are
required to
                    hit # after entering the extension number, and the
                    password. Features include easy message recording
and
                    forwarding, as well as out call for message
receipt
                    notification.
                    
Centagram - Most Centagram systems are direct dial. This means that
each
            customer has his/her own 800 number where you can leave
messages
            without having to go through extensions. You can only hack
these
            systems if you have the valid number of at least one
legitimate
            user. Once you have a valid box, scan other numbers in
sequence.
            Most, if not all, Centagram systems will group the boxes
together
            in "blocks". Upon calling a vacant box, you should hear a
generic
            greeting. Before you are told to leave a message, hit #.
            You will be prompted for a password. The password will
usually
            be the last four digits of the box's telephone number. If
this
            does not work, try some of the defaults mentioned above. 
            Centagram systems are very user friendly, and the nice
lady
            will guide you through a list of options upon entering the
box.

Cindi - Cindi systems are pretty easy to get into, and they tend to
have
        some nice features. Upon calling the system and pressing #,
you
        should hear "Please enter the person's name using your touch
tone
        keypad, last name followed by first. To enter a Q or Z push
1..."
        The disconnection message should sound something like "Thank
You,
        Good day". Mailboxes are usually grouped together in blocks
and will
        be either 3 or 4 digits. To log in you'll have to call the
vacant
        box and hit "0" when the message starts playing. The default
password
        for Cindi systems is also "0". Features include message
recording
        and forwarding, playback volume adjustment, call placements, 
        distribution lists, certified messages, and the ability to
create
        guest accounts for friends.

Meridian - These systems are the easiest to identify. Upon calling the
           number you should hear a female voice say "Meridian
Mail....
           Mailbox?" The box numbers are usually four digits and are 
           grouped together in a logical fashion. The default password
           is the same as the box number. Meridians have some nice
features,
           including the ability to dial out (some systems). Other
features
           include message forwarding, and "envelopes", distribution
lists,
           personal greetings inside the mailbox, and the ability to
log out.

Message Center - The Message Center is the easiest direct dial system
to
                 hack. Once again, you must find a valid box in the
prefix
                 you are scanning. After you have successfully located
a box,
                 hit * twice to access the main Message Center Board.
It
                 should say something to the effect of "Welcome to the
                 Message Center. Please enter a mailbox number or
wait".
                 Enter box numbers in the same prefix and listen for a
                 generic message. Once you've located a vacant box,
hit
                 * once to log in! It's really that easy. Although
features
                 are lacking, it is always nice to have a direct dial
box.

Octel - Not much is known about these systems. Upon calling the system
and
        hitting the # key, you'll be prompted for a mailbox number.
Enter
        the number followed by # and you'll get the password prompt.
Feel
        free to try some of the defaults from my list above. Remember,
all
        commands made outside the box must be followed by #. Once
inside,
        you'll be walked through the basic setup. Some Octel systems
will
        require you to change your pass code immediately. Desirable
features
        include the ability to control message playback speed and
volume,
        message notification, future delivery option, "private"
delivery
        option, faxing feature, and distribution lists.
 
One Connect - Perhaps the most useful voicemail system currently on
the
              market. Most One Connect systems are direct dial. Virgin
              boxes will give you set up instructions when called.
Press *
              for the password prompt, and key in the default code
1234.
              Once inside, you can listen to messages, retrieve faxed 
              messages, set up message verification, call long
distance
              numbers using the PBX, configure instant paging, and
even set
              up a toll free loop where callers can reach you. 

RSVP - These systems suck! They can only hold 23 boxes. Upon calling,
hit
       * for the directory of boxes. If you hit # first, you'll be
given
       a list of options. As soon as you select any option, you'll be 
       prompted for a mailbox number. The mailbox numbers are almost
always
       two digits. The password will be the same as the box number.

Skytel - One of the more difficult systems. Skytel voicemail is a
bitch
         because you are required to enter the password first,
followed by
         the box number. Many new voice mail systems are adopting this
         method since it makes hacking next to impossible. The best
way to
         hack Skytel is to get a PIN number of a user and call
customer
         support claiming to be the dissatisfied customer. Call
1-800-SKYUSER
         (1-800-759-8737) for Customer Support.

Sperry Link - An all around nice system that can be a bitch to hack.
Call it
              up and you'll hear "This is a Sperry Link voice station.
Please
              enter your user ID". Just try some common numbers in
sequence.
              Most IDs are five digits. If you hear "This is an XXX
answering
              service" you have found a valid box. Hit *# to get the
log in
              prompt. At this point you'll just have to guess the
password.
              Try some of the defaults from my list. The passwords are
              usually four digits.

 In addition there are many other systems not listed here. You'll
encounter
these unnamed systems too. Some of them are nice others are not.
