Talkmail works in most of the 403 area code.Rt now you can't send Talkmail to fortress phones or cell phones but you may listen to messages and messages from these locations. It is not possible to set up Talkmail remotely. You must set it u foyour own phone. You can get around this by constructing a beige box and finding a house that hs a otoor jackbox and has not yet set up their Talkmail service and passcode. You plug the box ino th jak,create a passcode and do an ANI and bingo! You have your own untraceable VMB. This is ony temorar beause once the victim hears the Talkmail tones they'll probably phone the phone co. an they ill fx th problem. The only precautions you should take is to frequently change hosts and ue payphnes whn leaing messages. This file is entirely for informational purposes only and besides I don'teven knw if tere is such a thing as Talkmail anywhere else in North America.
