:: Telkom's new Identicall system has been the bane of hackers and fone     ::
:: phreaks everywhere since its release, and has been a huge leap in terms  ::
:: of new developments for Telkom and its subsidiaries. Last issue, we      ::
:: covered a system which allows partial anonymity through dialing *31*     ::
:: before the number you want to call, but after the release of Issue Six,  ::
:: Telkom decided to make this a pay-for service. =(                        ::
::                                                                          ::
:: This for me was the final straw in a chain of events between our         ::
:: good friends at Telkom and the members of Posthuman. It started with     ::
:: them importing Six TEMPESTs for monitoring the Jhb 2600/Posthuman meets  ::
:: as well as the editors of Forbidden Knowledge, and now has moved on to   ::
:: things like making Caller-ID restriction a pay-for service just because  ::
:: it was published in a HPA e-zine. So, Here it is - how one can           ::
:: completely work around not only Identicall, but all conventional tracing ::
:: methods implemented by Telkom. Oh, and get this, it's for FREE! And to   ::
:: our friends at Telkom and the SAPS CCU - Get a life! We are just writing ::
:: a fucking E-ZINE for god's sake!                                         ::
::                                                                          ::
:: Telkom bought their IdentiCall technology from some or other German      ::
:: Telecommunications Giant, I'm not sure exactly which one, perhaps a few  ::
:: of our German readers will be able to find out, but never-the-less, this ::
:: system had only been tested out on the newer exchanges supplied by this  ::
:: company, and the South African telephone network is largely a hybrid of  ::
:: old and new exchanges.                                                   ::
::                                                                          ::
:: As a result, unknown to Telkom, (Relatively speaking of course, if you   ::
:: are reading this anything after 3 days after it's release, they will be  ::
:: aware of this) Identicall on all Pulse (Non-DTMF) exchanges does not     ::
:: function properly. It works to an extent, in that if your number is      ::
:: +27116848012 it will show as +2711684 - but that is it. Furthermore,     ::
:: dialing 101999 on these telephones will not produce any results, proving ::
:: that ALL conventional tracing methods are shot to hell. For Telskum to   ::
:: trace you, some-one physically has to go through pages and pages of      ::
:: information trying to manually find you, and this method is both too     ::
:: expensive and tiresome for Telkom to actually pursue it lest they have   ::
:: a *really* good reason to do so.                                         ::
::                                                                          ::
:: So, if you've been complaining about being on a pulse exchange for your  ::
:: entire life, whining about how slow data transfers are, and begging      ::
:: Telkom to upgrade you to a digital exchange - now is the time to stop.   ::
:: It may just be a resource worth keeping. ;)                              ::
