Quote from: Phonesrfun on May 09, 2010, 04:39:35 PMIf you have a sound card in your computer and a program that can produce two simultaneous tones, you can actually make your computer sound card produce a dial tone. In fact, with all the DTMF frequencies that are used for the digits 1 through 0, and the asterisk and the pound sign, you can actually program your computer to dial a number if you hold the handset up close to the computer speaker.
Quote from: rp2813 on May 13, 2010, 11:39:43 PMIs there any recording of the warped siren sound that you'd get when you confused the hell out of the system? As kids we would do all kinds of crazy dialing just to produce that sound. There's a particular name applied to the sound, but I can't currently put my hands on my 1945 directory that refers to it.
