Hosted by decoder and Lucky225. Default magazine is available on Lucky225's webpage. decoder spent a single day getting the magazine together. Lucky recently got a new phone from AT & T (the Ericsson T62U). "Happy new year to everyone" -- decoder. Paris Hilton's phone number was 310-990-7444. Some AT & T employee got a list of AT & T 800 numbers and posted them on the Internet [Google Groups | Neisz>]. AT & T's main "back door" number is 888-799-1305. Lucky calls 888-799-1305 they quote a 10 minute waiting time, and no one picks up (the back door number seems to be tied up). Lucky calls another back door number and gets put through to the main number straight away who give him the number 866-293-4636. Polish pay phones have their own prefix's. Lucky tells the story of how he had two cell phones ring at the same time which were on the same number. Lucky puts out the theory that it would be possible to get the caller id of anyone on the local cell sites first call (after they switch on their phone). Lucky was at his moms house on New Years eve. Default magazine was released before the radio show. Episode 7 will be live. "As always, Everything is always on Default"

Default Radio: Episode 6 (01:13:18) (Unknown)
hosted by decoder & w1nt3rmut3. w1nt3rmut3 is the special guest on this episode. Majestic calls in unexpectedly then drops. w1nt3rmut3 got a ticket after someone else ran a stop sign. w1nt3rmut3 gets another call, decoder fills with Doug. decoder does not like SUV's. w1nt3rmut3 discusses lock picking and how it works. If you get pulled over on the street with lock picks the police may view them as a .burglary tool. which can get you in trouble. decoder has a catalogue from Shomer Tec who sell lock picking devices to law enforcement. There are $11 digital cameras (1.2mp) which you are meant to take back to get developed, however it is possible to get the pictures off the yourself with a Palm cable [Alternate]. decoder had flames come out the back of his Volvo. Doug calls "KDDI Japan Direct" (800-543-0051). 800 numbers for "country direct" are free since they are usually used for placing collect / credit card calls within that country. decoders favourite ring tone is the Japanese. Honda's Tokyo headquarters number is 011-81-3-3423-1111. Doug gets some UK country direct numbers and considers calling the US country direct number from the UK (using Free World Dialup who offer among other things a free VoIP to UK 0800 number service). Doug calls the Netherlands country direct, decoder can't understand it (it is in Dutch). The Dutch country direct operator will not do directory lookup.

Default Radio: Epsiode 8 (01:48:37) (January 9, 2004)
hosted by decoder & lucky225. AT&T is expanding it local service to 27 states. Lucky gets another call. Doug was talking to an AT&T operator who insisted they only offer long distance service. A landline has a call timeout. Lucky discusses bank accounts, and opening them without a social security number. Lucky informs his bank what the Patriot Act (section 3.26) actual says / does not say which they have been told to cite to customers when opening accounts. decoder calls Wells Fargo who state it is up to the individual branches what identification they require. A listener contacts Lucky on AIM about the New York AP accidentally leaking some celebrities phone numbers. decoder gives out the call-in number 508-295-9926 ex 187. The newsgroup alt.phreaking has posts which have more information on it (note: the full list is now widely available on many sites such as Lucky calls the call-in line. Lucky is getting into "The Fifth Hope" for free. Doug pays someone to host the stream. decoder called up some number in Antigua Barbuda and got charged $4.84. Doug has made some spelling mistakes on the Default Radio website. Lucky calls Scott Free (who was admin of the SoCal bridge) on his mobile, he is in the desert. Scott announces that the SoCal will be return .pretty soon. Episode 10 will feature recordings from the SoCal. "This has been Dafault Radio episode 8" -- decoder. "Everything is always on Default"
ep09.mp3 8732725
Default Radio: Epsiode 9 (01:04:37) (Unknown)
hosted by decoder, lucky225, & ntheory. This episode was pre recorded due to Doug being on vacation. Bell South is getting out of the payphone business. A lot of people these days are getting away from copper landlines in favour of their VoIP / cell phones - decoder does not like it. "If its not copper, its not a phone" -- decoder. During blackouts phones such as VoIP will not work (unless you have a UPS), normal phone lines are reliable. decoder dialled up ABC news's on-air phone line to get the news during the blackout. 2.4 GHz phones will knock out a Wi-Fi network while in use. The 802.11a standard is 5.8GHz (same as the phones). 5.8GHz phones have a limited range. If you have not got a rotary phone in your house, you are not a phreak. Lucky has a pay phone laying around in his house. It is not a good idea to "scan" (numbers) on a rotary dial phone. If it was not for payphones decoder would not be a phreak. decoder feels bad for the kids growing up without payphones around. Captian Crunch was phreaking to reach numbers that could not be reached normally, not to get free calls. ntheory drops after some trouble with the modular plug on his phone. ntheory has a script to look up area codes at, he also has an AIM client to do the same. Default radio gets through 30/50GB transfer a month. There are no emails from listeners. Information on DATU units. is a Canadian phreaking site. decoder lost the password to Default radio voicemail. A listener suggests to name episode files (as the date in a standard ISO convention). ntheory suggests if people keep complaining to name each episode its md5 hash. Doug calls the voicemail, nttheory has left a message "ntheory owns your ANI" which has a callback number of 484-333-2858 (the Default voicemail number). decoder states they will not release any information how to spoof ANI the easy way as demonstrated by ntheory. Next weeks episode will be a SoCal special. "Everything is always on Default"

SoCal, a Look Back, hosted by decoder, Doug and Lucky225. This episode was pre recorded, and will feature content recorded from the SoCal bridge. Tron (known for disrupting teleconferences among other thing) is not such a bad guy accoring to decoder. Tron was "owned". Tron did not like a text file written by decoder. For a period Tron was calling the FBI for 20 minutes every day. [Audio played from conference]. Captain Crunch is working on a "Crunch Box" and trying to rid the world of spammers. Emmanual Goldstein (editor of 2600 Magazine) and Tron go back 20-25 years. [Audio played from conference with Captain Crunch]. Email requested from Tron. The SoCal bridge was a linux machine running Asterisk PBX with two T1 lines (24 voice lines) operating as a conference service. Kevin Mitnick was also heard on there a few times. Everybody who was anybody was on the SoCal bridge. It went down after the NSA got involved.[Recorded clips from the SoCal bridge is played]
ep11.11.mp3 12882282
Default Radio: Episode 11.11 (01:25:48) (Unknown)
hosted by decoder & lucky225. This is the "Default" episode of "Default" radio. Episode 6.9 has been lost. decoder did not like episode 11. Scroo will be on episode 12. Lucky225, and decoder have been playing with ANI spoofing. If you have your voicemail set up so you do not need to enter a password (default setup), change it. Your "FLEXANI" determines the voicemail box when you and listen to your messages on a cellular/mobile phone. Other things possible once a voicemail box has been hacked include changing your greeting. Lucky reiterates that FLEXANI is the only thing that determines the voicemail box which is not secure. Sprint's voicemail access number is [area_code][prefix_of_phone]-1111) If you spoof the FLEXANI to this number of another customer who has no password set up you will get into their voicemail. T-Mobile is believed to use voicemail access number [area_code][prefix_of_phone]-9999 (eg 909-319-9999). Sprint allows you to place calls using the voicemail - possibilities for fraudulent use. There are many ways to spoof your FLEXANI which is what most places (including credit card companies) use to verify who you are. Real-time ANI is only used for billing purposes. If you have a Linux box, and download Asterisk PBX software there are VoIP services which allow you to spoof your own FLEXANI (such as someone.s Sprint number). Lucky knows someone who has this setup (Note: Kevin Mitnick recently demonstrated this on TechTV). Lucky has an article on "ANI and Caller ID spoofing". Lucky calls the 800-555-1140 ANAC spoofing his FLEXANI to "212-001-0001" - it works (Apparently you can pass any 10 digit number - with a valid area code). New Vonage customers get a Motorola VoIP box (instead of the Cisco) which has some new features. When 3-way calling with Vonage both sides must pick up. With Vonage's new bug, you only get one 3 way, and must hang up / call again to 3 way to someone else. If you are calling a Verizon customer who has not got voicemail set, set it up for them. Small wireless phone companies buy phone error messages from other companies. Discussion on the Superbowl / reality TV (decoder's rant). Lucky pronounces telephony. "Partner Mail VS" (accessed on *7) administrator mail box is usually 99 with password 1234. Malicious hackers may break into your Partner Mail and change the default language to Cantanese. Audix (accessed on *7) to get in: [mail_box_number][password][pound_key] (no default password). Meridian Mail - get a voicemail, *81 to log in [mail_box_number][password][pound_key] (no default password). Hacking a "Mail South Inc." mailbox - Decoder enters 111, (unknown_dtmf) and gets into a voicemail box. decoder attempts to "hack" another voicemail box but the password has changed. On an unknown voicemail system admin mail boxes are usually: 999, 199, 500 - there is the possibility of DOS since message length is unlimited. Linksys default access details are username: admin, password admin or blank (no password). Apartment complexes electronic gate systems are generally not secure e.g. with (Syntex?) to login type ***, then enter 000000 (6 zeros) as the password (usually enter 1,4 to add a pass code, then ** to exit programming) Almost all apartment gate systems (which Lucky has come accross) are set on default passwords. Pizza Hut have an administration site where all you need to login in is the store number as the password and managers first name, last name, store number as the username. Receipts may have the managers name on them. decoder has a go at people with fake "Fisher Price" phones. Send mail to PO Box 1111, Guasti California, 91743-11111. Employee area doors with access keypads such as Walmart usually use the store number e.g. 1584. [Recording saying The ANI is 484-3332-858].

Default Radio: Episode 11 (01:18:29) (January 30, 2004)
hosted by decoder and lucky225. # Lucky lost his job. Lucky's private investigation business is not going well. Doug experiences packet loss, Lucky silently drops. Telemarketers are now required to pass a valid caller id. Do not call 800 numbers direct (your actual ANI is always passed), use 10-10-288. decoder drops in the middle of a sentence, Doug drops, Lucky is the only one left. [Short Break, to sort out technical issues]. There are no emails. decoder calls Japan, they have a nice ring tone. AT&T have new, kinder recordings while you wait.Lucky has an advanced copy of his article on privacy that will appear in the Winter edition of 2600 at Lucky usually buys 2600 from Barnes & Noble since they have it before it arrives in his mailbox, and jokes about signing the extra copies and selling them on Ebay. Lucky has an AT&T phone without a social security number and describes how to do it. Doug plays the voicemail, Tron has left a message. decoder's voicemail is 206-984-3825, Lucky's voicemail is 909-590-0004. Cbzone is officially gone. decoder disappears, Lucky and Doug fill. Talk of a possible hacker conference in Arizona. "Everything is always on Default".

Default Radio: Episode 12 (01:02:26) (February 6, 2004)
hosted by decoder & doug: guests are lucky225 at la2600 with scroo & kurced. Talk about the "old days" with pagers. Lucky calls in too early and hangs up. Doug reviews on Packet8 and Vonage. decoder calls Lucky at LA 2600. decoder talks to Scroo (also at LA 2600) about Blacklisted 411 "Westcoast counterpart to 2600" an old-time hacking magazine which has just started up again. decoder, Lucky, and StankDawg have article in the recently released Winter 2600. Layer 1 a hacker conference will be talking place June 12-13th at Los Angeles International Airport Westin Hotel. Everyone at LA 2600 is watching Lucky and Scroo through the payphones. Scroo passes off the phone to kurced. Trouble with low sound levels on the phones. decoder calls AT&T (3G/2G/Go Phones) Customer Service "back door" (bypass 30-60 min queue waiting times) number 800-572-8071 Ex: 41547 pound. Lucky and Doug try to fill while decoder sorts out some issues with his phone. Lucky drops to take part in the LA 2600 meeting. Happy Birthday to Lucky225's girlfriend! There are two emails about the UK talking clock. 4 UK talking clock numbers are 0845-124-9068 (from the US 0-11-44-845-124-9068), 0845-092-8081, 0870-765-8081, and 0131-477-7676. It is no longer possible to buy talking clocks, but you can build one. In the UK 0845 is the prefix for a local rate non geographic number, 0870 for a non geographic nation rate number. 123 is the "official" number for the UK talking clock. Some UK website for VoIP are - Telappliant an 0870 number mapped a SIP phone and Sip Call a prepay VOIP to PSTN termination service. Doug calls the voicemail (*67-1-484-DEFAULT) there are several messages including one from Poland (some UK phones have different number-to-letter mappings). A lot of payphone phreaking goes on in Poland. Apparently there is a way to make calls to non toll-free numbers using Free World Dialup. Nokia 918 analogue phones are not susceptible to voicemail hacking - they do not have voicemail. Doug (voicemail 909-212-DOUG) is going to launch a weekly Internet TV show. decoder's voicemail is 206-984-3825. "Everything is always on Default". [An automatic voice message system (484-333-2858) is hacked]

Default Radio: Episode 14 (01:49:36) (February 20, 2004)
hosted by decoder and Doug. Lucky cannot be found. decoder has his stereo too loud - doug complains. New Jersey / Vermont DATUs have had all their password changed, they are no longer on default (which they have been on for years). New York DATUs are still on default passwords. "They are onto us" -- doug. If you dial a DATU it will give you a 440Hz tone. The Harris manual [] tells you the default user password for DATUs is 1111, and the admin password is *2222222. is a comprehensive telephone related information resource. Perhaps all DATUs are on the same new numbers. decoder / Doug do not like "The Broken". BinRev Hack TV is going to be a lot better - they will actually be going out war driving, not just talking about it. is a project to "scan the entire 1-800-944- exchange for interesting numbers". Caller ID / ANI spoofing is the latest, greatest subject at Default radio. Attempt to play a Sprint phone recoding [fails after the phones owner picks up]. Sprint PCS's phones as mentioned before, allow you to dial out from the voicemail however some limitations have been discovered (you must be calling from your home coverage area). decoder has the idea it may be possible to spoof from a cell phone in the coverage area based on the exchange of the number - there will be an update on this next week. decoder calls a couple of numbers attempting to get a turned off Sprint phone, but fails and promises he will have one for demonstration next week. doug gives out the call-in number. The was no voicemail. Doug reads out an email. Doug is on a Packet8 phone in Chino Hills. decoder calls the call-in line conference number but misdials, there is no one there. decoder dials again, there are people there. Someone on the conference plays some audio from September 11th. People talked about others in another conference were calling a Boston elevator and using the intercom on it. There is a particular elevator that also allows you to control what floor it goes to using DTMF (decoder will not disclosure the number). "0wning elevators" -- decoder. Telemarketers have now started sending fake caller id. Someone in the conference attempts to 3 way in Jason Scott webmaster of - it does not work. natas attempts it and is successful. Jason runs from a T1 line going into his house (It is pushing out about 30-40GB per month). People should pre-render web pages. gets about 100,000-120,000 unique hits per month. Someone apparently does not know a milliwatt number and attempts to DOS the conference call-in number by repeatedly pressing buttons on their phone. "Everything is allways on Default..." "... except for the DATUs"

hosted by decoder, Lucky225, natas. is now up. Email addresses:,, Discussions on giving out email addresses. It is decided that emails addresses will be given out to listeners who take part in a "scavenger hunt" for phone related items. AT&T's network is "better" than everyone else.s according to an AP article. AT&T will be rolling out VoIP services to 100 US markets this year. The FBI want a way to tap into VoIP services. decoder gets another call. It is not legal for VoIP service providers to record calls and then decode them later - this introduces difficulties for wiretapping since for it to be legal calls would have to be decoded in real time. With Vonage you can block call waiting. Doug drops after decoder says he is not meant to be on the show, and to go back to engineering it. decoder decides to call natas to talk about Asterisk but he is not home. AT&T is forcing some customers to change phones eg from the Ericsson T68i to the Ericsson T226 (which has less features) due to the fact they are switching their network. Lucky225 has a political announcement, he will be running for mayor of Guasti, California. decoder tries to call natas again, and gets through. natas is big on dumpster diving (PLA: Definition). decoder jokes about collecting rubbish by the truck full as an easy alternative to dumpster diving, then realises it is actually a good idea. There is a company called Ad Noodle who pay you for the privilege of being talked to by telemarketers. Lucky gets it to call the conference their are recording the show from, eventually it does. Since Ad Noodle called the conference line it must hang up - decoder leaves a voicemail message at the end of which it hangs up. natas calls up a number which announces half a CLLI Code. The DATU situation as discussed previously is becoming critical. "Critical Mass" joins in on the call-in number. Discussions on "Chrome Boxes" [Boxes list] used to manipulate traffic signals. If two people have Chrome Boxes on separate sides of an intersection both lights will go green.. According to Lucky it is legal. "The news is not the truth" -- decoder. Lucky gives shouts to City Bank. decoder has problems with his email account - it was suspended after being used for insalubrious purposes. "A lot is always on Default". "Everything is always on Default"
ep16.5.mp3 7697554
Default Radio: Episode 16.5 (01:04:08) (March 10, 2004)
hosted by decoder, Lucky225. This is Lucky's last episode] [Recording played detailing the history of the telephone]. [Recording played of a failed attempt to set up a Sprint voicemail account]. "This is a special episode" -- decoder. All email accounts are now working.It seems that contrary to what was said on episode 11 it is not possible to spoof to a Sprint phone and set up voicemail. This show will broadcast on Lucky225's birthday. On March 10th 1876 the first successful experiment was conducted with the telephone. Lucky has trouble pronouncing the url. decoder asked Tron if he wanted an @default email address - he refused but one was setup anyway. Send hate mail to are giving out free shell accounts (warning: you will get owned by using it). decoder calls 212-221-9920 and gets a recording. decoder calls 909-390-130, its a milliwatt. Numbers in the format [prefix]1[prefix] are usually interesting. decoder calls a Southern California DATU (the number is not given out but its in the 818 area code). Lucky gives out the number 909-390-9900, its engaged. Decoder tries the number - static is heard before the line drops. decoder again has a go at people using Fisher Price phones. Lucky drops, then calls back in. If you call 909-390-9908 you will always get a busy (decoder forwards his calls there). decoder has whole exchanges that ring busy. Most DATU's in New Jersey are on 9935 (others are 9979 9980). decoder calls 909-390-9935, it is just a test tone. decoder calls 914-631-9967, its another (higher pitched) test tone. decoder has a (backdoor to directory assistance) non supervising number - it does not work on a Sprint phone since they block the audio until it does supervise. When calling the above described number the operator believes the number you are calling is the number you are calling from. "AT&T will let you get through and speak through non supervising numbers" -- decoder. Dial [any_area_code]959-1088 for a non supervising number. When you call TelUs (800-646-0000) [number incorrect? recording partially inaudible - reaches a human operator] then ask for directory assistance and let the menu play out you will get an intercept operator - if they do not look on their screen (to see the call has not been charged yet) you can get free directory assistance (they do not fall for it when Lucky tries). If you dial 411 from a payphone (only certain payphones), and flash the hook you will be asked for city/state. This episode was pre recorded. "Everything is always on Default"

Doug has found parts of episode 6.9. Dial *70 to disable call waiting (1170 to enable it). decoder took part in a TV quiz show, he suspects it was .dummed down. for the average American viewer. Lucky signed up with Ad Noodle however has yet to get any calls from them. Lucky has been scanning the Guasti switch. Lucky switches phones since the old one was low, Decoder has a go at Lucky for not switching phones 20 minutes ago (since the beginning of the episode). decoder makes up a new rule - if you want to be on Default radio you have to use the best phone available to you. The REN on decoder.s phone is 1.0.Lucky calls up the phone number 909-390-9901 (an RTU) which has some strange DTMF activated recordings. decoder calls 914-763-9992 which announces the time, and various temperatures. decoder calls 909-390-1110 which makes a number of tones / sounds. Milliwatts are usually on 5555 (on exchanges such as 508-295 and 781-382) - wait 10 seconds then start hitting buttons to get strange sounds. 909-390-0003 is a true silent termination. With the toll free .Quest Update Centre. number (888-[your_area_code]-8052) you can control all the services you have on your phone such as call forwarding, call waiting, caller id, privacy / security screen manager (passwords are always on default ie 1234). All these things that are meant to make your phone more secure, are actually making them insecure. -- decoder. decoder calls an old 9x recording (516-783-9999). Any email sent to has been lost - the site has been down. "Everything is always on Default"

Lucky will no longer be on Default radio due to "creative conflicts". ntheory is the new co-host. "This is the new unimproved version of the show" -- decoder. ntheory has VoTV (voice over TV) - [decoder's colloquism of voice over broadband cable?]. Dual has emailed in with a calling card (800-318-7105 pin 992-008-6800). GIJoe emails saying he noticed that when dialling in pulse another one of his other phones rung. decoders tip: "You do not want people intercepting your DTMF, therefore you should dial in pulse".... "You never know" -- decoder You can pulse dial on Asterisk and it will translate it to DTMF. Send spam to There are plans to introduce a "mobile" top level domain name for cellular phones / mobile devices. ntheory agrees it would be cool if the extension was ".mob". decoder reads an article from the "Mercury News" - apparently San Jose officials are announcing free wireless internet access in three areas to "lure techies downtown" - there is also "There is anecdotal evidence that free WiFi can be a draw for the young and the technically savvy" [for insalubrious purposes?]. decoder calls up the author of the article he just read and leaves a voicemail. Doug questions whether the number called is actualy a mobile or not. There is a USB Version of the Swiss Army Knife coming out. Majestic calls in on the bridge being used to record the show - Majestic has harsh words to say about the recent happenings in terms of the BinRev forums and getting banned. Lucky's voice comes out of nowhere - Lucky has been on the bridge all along (according to Doug because he wanted to record his own show). decoder has been scanning the Far Rockaway switch [Mapquest | TelcoDate].decoder calls 718-337-9901 which announces information on the Far Rockaway switch. decoder calls 718-337-9919 which is a Verizon recording.Doug calls the voicemail. decoder wants email feedback to, or anything good to decoder gives shouts to: ex co-host Lucky225, ex DDP forum member Majestic, ex new host ntheory.
