Those AT&T center voicemail addresses still work. If you have one of those "dumb phones_" on AT&T, go to your text messaging, then settings, and then Voicemail Settings. It will already have a number typed in, but you can change it.

Here's one for Troy, Michigan: 248-224-0128
And an MMS one, for texting: 312-314-9810 (Email Gateway: 121)

I don't know if I like this change... I've been with BlackStorm for over 5 years. I've *NEVER* had *ANY* relationship in my life last 5 years. I don't think I can give her up. I'm so sorry...  :nonsense: :'(

Anyone have info on it? I can't seem to find any good articles about it online, all of them just say "Don't do it, it's illegal" and don't have any techincal info on it or explanations on how to do it.

Anyone have experience with this? I think it could be a fun thing to mess around with.

You probably have your theme set to BlackStorm instead of whatever the default theme is.  So if you go into your settings and switch to default, it should change it to the newer theme.  I changed it from black because I've decided not to be emo anymore.

OMG! I was so impressed today! I went to the forum site and I saw a new theme and it was glorious! I went to make a post about how much I loved the new theme and noticed I was not logged in since I had recently cleaned my cache. Then, much to my dismay, the theme reverted to the BlackStorm it has been for years.

Why, Lord? Why? Why tease me so?!?

I am summarily depressed and it is all RoBoCoP's fault. My death will be on your hands!!!!!
Phones in the News / Samantha West, Robot Telemarketer

Meet the Robot Telemarketer Who Denies She’s A Robot
The phone call came from a charming woman with a bright, engaging voice to the cell phone of a TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer. She wanted to offer a deal on health insurance, but something was fishy.

When Scherer asked point blank if she was a real person, or a computer-operated robot voice, she replied enthusiastically that she was real, with a charming laugh. But then she failed several other tests. When asked “What vegetable is found in tomato soup?” she said she did not understand the question. When asked multiple times what day of the week it was yesterday, she complained repeatedly of a bad connection.

The Only Thing Weirder Than a Telemarketing Robot
Sometimes, you have to think like a scammer.

So, when I saw that an apparent robot telemarketer named Samantha West had randomly called a Time writer and denied she/it/they was a robot, I wondered: where could I buy such an interactive voicebot?

This query led me down a strange rabbit hole. And along the way, I discovered that Samantha West may be something even stranger than a telemarketing robot. Samantha West may be a human sitting in a foreign call center playing recorded North American English through a soundboard.

I'm a year late but if you mean besides merch, maybe you guys could have your own game/animated short or something. But if you mean merch maybe something like phone covers, posters, more shirts, an actual cactus farm, and maybe hoodies and sugarplums. I don't know just some random thoughts My own mediocre attempt at humor has been highly amusing to myself..

Just stumbled here to say G'day from Sydney Australia ... I am old school .. back in the late 80's and 90's in the days of the Amiga 500 computer ..

when phone systems were a joke and easily exploited ... and before there was the internet ... :)

I was a member of the group Liberty who released this program -->

I was a phreaker , modem trader , co-sysop of a few bbs systems , and did some voice mail box hacking etc.
Even though I sold all my computer gear after the big busts in Australia , I still kept a couple of my private phreaking disks and recently had them converted to adf format so they can be used on the amiga emulator winaue .. if you want to have a look at the programs I was using then you can download them from here -->


If you read the book the Underground by Suelette Dreyfus .. the introduction mentions a few people from liberty  :D ... you can download it for free here -->


anyone from the good old days here ?

Guys, I think it was a hoax.

I just called it again, like a year later or whatever it is, and its a conference call room.
Fun Phone Numbers / The Number You Have Dialed is Unallocated

Anyone ever run into these before?

I was just scanning random numbers by hand when I hit it, feel free to check it out:


The area code is Detroit, more specifically North-West Livonia (At least, based on an NXX list from 1991 haha)

Interesting line though, never heard that recording before.
