How to identify your individual phone number, cell or home


Ever wondered how to make sure that your home phone, or even your cell phone has the correct number? Have your callers been unable to reach you, but you don't understand why, your phone seems to be working!!

Do you want to do your own houshold phone wiring on that new second or third line you ordered?

Ever just needed to know the number of the phone line where your're at, and no one is there to tell you?

ITS EASY!!! AND IT WORKS ON CELLPHONES, TOO!!!

Just pick up on the line in question, and dial the following number...

1 - 800 - 444 - 4444

You will get a digitized voice that recites the number you are calling from
I N S E C O N D S !

... also works on payphones, too!

How do I find the location of the payphone a txt was sent from


Puzzled, payphones don't send text messages???

Even if they did, the only way you would find that information would be if you were part of a government department and had a warrant. Sometimes the payphone number is displayed, but they don't accept incoming calls.

If a text was sent from a cellphone by someone standing in a phone box, the same applies. Geo-location can only be obtained by warrant.

I just bought a payphone on ebay, advertised as new, but it does not have any info with it and I do not see anything on the phone showing make or model. Seller says he does not know either. What do I do...


The guts of smartphones were made by 2 companies, Elcotel and Protel. Here's a link to the Payphone.com website. Perhaps you can match a picture of the phone and download a set of instructions. http://www.payphone.com/Pay-Phones/

I recently got this old "Panasonic Easa Phone KX-T2835" from a thrift store and my phone only rings twice before my answering machine picks up. How can I make my phone wait till 4 or 5 rings before it...


Have you tried erasing all the (incoming) messages on the machine? Does that let it ring the full 4-ring-cycle before it picks up?

It's been years since I owned one of these, but there should be a switch (on the side of the unit?) for a feature called "toll saver" If you find this, switch it off.

The idea was from the days of payphones -- if the machine had no messages, it would ring 4 times before it picks up. If there were messages, it would pick up after one ring (or sometimes two)

If you were out on the town and wanted to check your messages, you'd put your dime in a payphone and call home. If it rang three times, you can hang up the payphone and get your dime back, knowing there's no message to check.

Phone receiver not working


Is this a replica or a real payphone? Will the transmitter cap unscrew?
A couple of things to try, is take out the transmitter, hold it in the palm of your hand (with the holes in your palm) and slap the assembly on a hard surface. That unpacks the carbon granules.

If that doesn't work, it also may be that a relay is operating because it is want is called a Postpay payphone. Try reversing the Tip and Ring (green and red) line connections and test it again.

Finally, a genuine "g" handset transmitter capsule is about $3, making it cost more to ship than buy. Your picture shows a non "armored" handset cord. If that's really the truth, is the handset black and non-modular? And how does it fit into the payphone housling?

Please don't rate this until you have answers....

The magic jack is pluged into the phoneline directly


OK.. First of all, I am hoping you understand the basics of the MagicJack concept ?? Highspeed Internet connection on your PC, MagicJack plugged into your USB port, with a phone plugged into the other end of the MagicJack ? It requires High Speed, no dial up, and marginally works on my wireless Broadband due to atmospheric influences. It DOES work on my bluetooth wireless cell modem just based on the better speeds I get from the modem vs. my wireless Broadband.

1. If you have a Cable Modem or Wireless Broadband Dish for internet, follow the steps below.. IF you have DSL, skip to # 2.. if you have Dial-up skip to # 3,

I personally own wireless Broadband, so my ongoing experience is from here. I own a MagicJack for traveling and a Vonage line, for my house fax line service because the MagicJack is not strong enough, power wise, to push through my CAT/5 house, phone lines. Vonage does provide phone for the entire house, for the most part, cleanly, because Vonage uses a powered router to provide the final signal, which I then jumber over to a phone jack to connect into the house. It also requires that you disconnect your external phone lines, that would normally go back to the "Big Bad Phone Company". This can be done at the demarcation point, where your regular phone lines connect into a box, outside your house ? The internet I have, is in my shop, about 150' from the main house, Vonage's router power's the whole house, just fine.

2. With DSL, you will have good solid speeds, but you will still have the issue of, MagicJack, being too low in it's power source, because it comes from the USB port of your PC. You are basically going to be stuck with a single wireless or corded phone, for the MagicJack service. In this case, since the DSL is fed through the BBPC phone lines, you will not be able to 'pipe', even Vonage back through your house phone lines.

3. If you're on dialup, you're going to have poor service, out of the box.. you're just not going to be fast enough to be clean.

As an added note.. Your query for help is concerning.. again, high speed internet into your PC, MagicJack plugged into your PC's USB port, the phone plugs into the MagicJack's RJ-11 phone port.


Thank you for your time in these matters.

Respectfully,

We have a payphone that the user can hear the person they are talking to fine, but the person they are talking to cannot hear them. We need parts or repair advice.


The handsets receiver has gone bad. Just have a technician replace the handset Or if you wanna do it yourself. The handset is like $20 and you can get them at PayPhone.com

Hi, Ive got a BT Contour 100 Payphone, but there is no dial tone or display. Cheers


You need to dismantle phone and replace Varta CR1/2AA 3Volt lithium battery. Dismantling is easy enough but you MUST lay out the screws etc so they go back in the right place, particularly the one with the two nylon washers underneath the head.
