At around 0645 UTC on May 1st, 2013 we were able to connect to a real person on ext 2. An american man greeted the phone with "Material Desk" and then asked a colleague "So whats this thing about again? the material order desk" then he started what seemed to be a program connected to an ABISM device and asked for an Account Number which come in varied formats. After giving him the Account Number AB000 he then asked for a Job Code and said these were numerical only.

Calling from the correct phone
888 854 2402 responds differently depending on the number stored in Caller ID. That means that you can spoof the "originating" number and get different responses based on this from 888 854 2402. The first indication that this was possible came when L0j1k used Caller ID spoofing on the Fort Lauderdale Airport to try and get TDD tones, since we were having great difficulty in finding an agent willing or able to physically go to the airport for the clue. During this time, a few numbers for payphones in the FLL airport were found (on BinRev forums). L0j1k tried these numbers (ex: 954 359 8827) and was redirected to the "classy tango" song and following voicemail system: .
Once L0j1k had finally gotten an airport worker to dial his own Asterisk PBX from the exact TDD phone, he had the exact number of the TDD phone (954 359 0332). Spoofing from this number got two different responses, which seemed to each have about a 50% chance of issuing. Both responses started with the "regular" piano music for a few seconds. The first response cut to silence followed by TTY tones that gave the "further instructions". The second response redirected to MD buzzing (and MD answering available).
So we thus have three different responses (regular "remote services bureau" menu, "classy tango" voicemail, and MD/TTY-tones).
It's important to note that L0j1k had three people search the FLL airport TDD phone for the "memory card" referred to in "further instructions" without luck. The best help ("Marva") tried to search the phone during a 15-minute break from a nearby shop in Terminal 2, but had to return to work. L0j1k checked the 888 number to ensure that it was still issuing TTY tones, as he was going to walk Marva through the process of opening the TTY machine at the payphone to search for the missing card. About an hour prior to the final search, 888 was verified as issuing TTY tones. Approximately an hour later, Marva returned to the payphone area with her son (a "technical person" who could identify memory cards better than Marva). L0j1k walked Marva through the process of dialing 711 to open the TTY machine (no card was found and pictures were taken, as can be seen on the Fort Lauderdale Airport page). L0j1k then instructed Marva to dial 888 854 2402 from the TDD phone. We tried two or three times to get the TTY tones, to no avail. L0j1k thought this was strange, thanked Marva for her help, and then tried to dial 888 through his Asterisk to spoof from the TDD phone. Importantly, 888 no longer issued TTY tones or redirected to MD at all! It simply plays piano for about thirty seconds and then disconnects. As of 22 June 2013, that is still the case.
Calling from a random non-TDD number
|1||Gets put through to a live operator who answers with "Yeah?" / Twice now this has gone straight to Message Desk||Calls by Braco: Asking about WORMS Giving him Location codes & numbers||A simultaneous test was done with this extension and Message Desk. Message Desk's other phone rang as a result but he didn't pick up.|
|2||Plays a 10 min loop of 4 different songs / Materials Desk guy picks up (see below). Also extremely interesting is that if multiple people connect to this extension at once, they are dropped into a conference with one another. Braco and L0j1k discovered this, and L0j1k at one point was able to trigger a conference control menu by pressing pound, but no longer (as of 10 May 2013).||(see below for MoD recordings) Songs||Needs Further Analysis|

- Tones on this number sound very similar if not exactly the same as MD tones.
- Resolute Bay was used as a launch area for Sounding Rockets
- Braco called MD and got through to a person that answered the phone with "Yea?" instead of the usual MD greeting.
- [9:23 AM] <Braco> so first time I called MD today it went through to "Yea?" guy, second time to MD actual. On asking MD if it was the same guy he said he didn't remember and that he has had so many calls today "6 calls in the last 5 minutes"
- [9:24 AM] <Braco> so to test this we need to get two people simultaneously calling MD and Yeah guy
- [9:25 AM] <Braco> he also said he answers the MD phone with Message Desk but there is no "Yea?" phone.
- [9:26 AM] <Braco> however I swear to god ive heard him answer Yea? to a few phone calls when he's been putting me on hold
- Calling 888 854 2402 from Europe (23.06.2013 12:00)

You then get a dialling tone where you can enter numbers. If you don't enter anything, or enter something incorrect, you get an "error siren".
User bobdamnit has reported different results when attempting to dial extensions - a few beeps and then a "busy" tone.

Network Services Complex had a new voice prompt upon dialing.
"You have reached the network services complex. Please note, minor administration orders may now be created through oh-zero-oh-four. Thank you." It then goes to dialtone and waits for input, as normal. If you dial 0004 here, you get a menu.
"Administration menu. Press 1 for Deep Springs, press 2 for Cleveland Direct, or press 3 for MXP20".
Pressing 1 gives the message: "Press 1 to busy up the Deep Springs link work route, or press 2 to release. Press # for more info." Pressing # at this point: "When not in use, the Deep Springs route may be busied up through this routine. Please note, extended activity is NOT recommend. Routine calls may be placed through a Class 6 type (tie??) route."
Pressing 2 gives an error message.
Pressing 3 gives: "Legacy compatibility options are not currently available without assistance. Press 1 to switch MXP20 to 256 byte mode."
