Here's how you use a Blue Box

                                             Presented       /|_|\

 Here's how you use a Blue Box:

     Dial  a  number where when you blow a 2600hz tone it drops trunk  (gives  a
click  and a operater's line to dial).  Now operaters don't dial in normal tones
like you are used to...they dial in whats called Multi Frequency Tones (MF tones
as  to the standard DTMF tone of your phone).  Anyways,  once you have drop  the
trunk line all you need to do is dial in MF...

     To  start  a call you hit "kp" (key pulse foward) tone then the number  you
wish to dial and then "st" (stop) to finish dialing and start routing.  Now with
that  in mind you can dial any number a normal phone would handle (in  the  same
way). But you can also dial different operators and services thanx to AT&T.

     Here are some examples of what you may find if you dialed kp+213+PXX+st
