Equipment Checklist For Phreaking on the fly

Arrow Image As above


Simple, one piece Telephone - Must support both pulse and tone dialing.

Wire Strippers - Get a decent pair you can carry around in your pocket etc. Should also be adjustable and have an insulated handle to protect yourself from minor shocks.

Long nose Pliers - Same as above, bar the adjustable. Try get a needle nose pair.

Wire Snips - See above

Screwdrivers - Both a philips and a flat.

Jewellers Screwdrivers - In sizes: 1/32\" 3/64\" 5/64\" 5/32\" 1/8\" 9/64\"

Torch - Will come in handy, chances are you\'ll be a lot safer attacking equipment at night so a worthwhile investment.

Multimeter - It doesn\'t have to be a £250 RS BABT approved unit - a simple device to
light a bulb or led in the presence of a voltage will do. Desired values
should be a resilience of surge voltages approx 90v (+/- 5). Any decent
piece of kit should have surge protection, or selective metering built in.

Crocodile Clips - The things you used in school when you were learning about electricity in science ;D

Masking tape - Used mostly for marking wires etc, but is always handy.

An IDC tool - Go for a decent one, the cheap ones are shit.

Gloves - If you\'ve been arrested before, you\'ll understand this one.

Telephone Cabling - No hi-grade four wire pairs, just some scatter wire for making a quick
bridging adaptor when your\'e working with a modular frame. This can usually
be obtained on site, but bring some just in case.

Knife - Preferable some kind of Stanley Blade, i like an ultra sharp lock knife.

Small Nail bar (Crowbar) - Yeah

Hayes Accura phone jack - Not hard to find, it\'s simply a jack that changes an American style RJ11
jack plug into a BT socket. Very useful if you just paid £50 for your
newly carded SouthWestern bell handset, and you don\'t want to massacre the
plug on it. You could also sacrifice an extension cable, although the strain
relief is poor on these at the best of times.


Let\'s play ;x

Well, all i need is a beige box, as i only use Phreaking cuz my economy is really tight Grin

You're not a phreaker then. Same terminology applies to somebody who uses other peoples tools/exploits.
djdottion July 04 2007 - 18:45:45
I like this one too! Just what it says on the tin
netfishon July 07 2007 - 09:19:32

stitchupon July 08 2007 - 13:51:15
lol, mate. Hit me on irc. I messaged you and everything. If i'm not on memoserv owns all :ninja:

Stitchup, nice article, but the bashing of root_op is pretty false. If you use a beige box to not have to pay for your own phone calls, that doesn't mean yer a "skiddy" in phreaking.
stitchupon July 10 2007 - 18:15:31
I didn't say that. I just said he's not a phreaker. Remember dude, if you have to read things twice before you understand then please do so.
