A website that lets you play with your phone phreak blue box


Unfortunately as TFA states this also requires a time travel app, in-band tone control finally died when the last user, a micro-bell local telco in Minnesota stopped using it in the early 2000s. It made me sad, I used to dream of blueboxing long distance for dialup BBSs, I never did it though instead incurring occasional parental wrath rather than the feared FBI or FCC visit.
Damn, I need to build my kids a bluebox now, that projectmf is pretty cool!

They don’t work any longer (at least in most parts of the world)…"

The ProjectMF server can be accessed via the PSTN on 630-485-2995. The switch will play back recorded instructions when you dial in. You must have a blue box handy and understand how to use it to have any fun with this.

I must understand how to use it? I know that I am not dialing if I am using DTMF hardware,

My locality was already beyond blue-boxibility by the mid 90s, when I tried it.

This is Euro Truck Simulator for the geek crowd. Whether that’s good or bad is up to your interpretation.

I experimented with a number of phreaking methods back in the day. Had a ton of fun but limited most of my actual illegal stuff to pay phones. Unlike my friends that ended up raided by the fbi. I guess that’s fun in its own way?
