'[EE]: Telephone Disconnected Signal; Stopping Tel'
2001\10\18@151418 by Nick Masluk

I just saw a commercial on this device called
"TeleZapper" (http://www.telezapper.com), and it
produces a "disconnected" signal whenever the
telephone is picked up to make auto dialers think your
number doesn't exist (see FAQ on the website for more
info).  I was just wondering if anyone here knows what
that signal is.

IIRC it is simply the tones that you hear when you call an inactive phone
line. There was a similar project in a recent issue of Poptronics IIRC. It
is NOT worth the $80 something dollars they want for it. TTYL

Or you can do what my friend Diode Dan* did; just dial until you come
across an unlisted number. Record it as your answering machine's greeting
message. It took a couple of days for his girl friend to figure out what
was happening.

This topic is discussed often on the comp.homeautomation newsgroup.  I
belive there is a web site where you can download the tones (3 chimes) and
put it on your answering machine.

Personally I take great pride in requesting that my name is removed from
their list, significantly reduced my problems

The signal is the doo-doo-dee that you here when you dial a number
that's been disconnected. The signal is standard, and the device emits
that signal when you hit the button. This in thoery makes the automated
telemarketer's machines think your number is out of service, so it
removes it from the list, because why should it bother with dialing non
existant numbers? I think Poptronics ran an article on how to make one
of these a number of months ago. IIRC, which I probably don't, it
revoloved around an ISD chip that recorded the sound, then played it
back on command. They might even have a wav of that sound on their
website, but I could be wrong.

Hope that helps,

Josh Koffman

Some nasty 0900 numbers here have done that by recording a ringing sound and
playing that when the phone automatically picks up, so your paying some
horrendous amount per minute thinking the phone has not yet been answered

Hi,

there is another - not so harmful example: there are the automatic
fax/voice diverters. They also pick up automagically, playing the ringing
tone, and waiting for the G3 tone of the fax. If it does not arrive, then
the attached phone will be rung. It can also costs if the party resides
abroad...
