Make Your Own Phone Ring...


Recommended Posts

Deron Dantzler

I remember long ago dialing *(SOMETHING) and then my own phone number and hanging up...A few seconds later the phone would ring and 2 people could pick up. There would be a buzz that's not heard of in any other phone mode but you could hear one another. Pretty neat to **** your parents off though by calling your own house when you're in the house...Or maybe one's out in the yard w/ a cordless and you can call one another. Anyone remember the *(SOMETHING)?

Haha that must have been it but there's a trick to it I guess like you have to do it twice or something...I don't fully remember, but I'm bored :).

The way I do this, and other stuff like making the talking clock phone you is by doin this: (UK only)

Dial 123 (talking clock) and have a quick chat.

Press RECALL on your phone (or just r - not REDIAL!) You will hear a dial tone

Put the phone back on the hook. It will ring.

Let someone answer it, and they will hear the clock!

Just shows how sad i am lol...

In New Zealand, you press 137 and hang up, then the phone will ring, and sound just like any other call.

i know i use 955+ the last four digits of my phone number, then hang up right away, then pick up 2 secs later, listen for a weird tone, then hang up. about 5 secs later, the phone rings and it's the same weird tone. that's how it works for me in Ohio

For me all I do is dial my number, wait for the busy tone, hang up and then the phone starts ringing. Then pick it up and you have a connected call.

Yeah I used to do that here in Columbus with the pay phones in high school. It would ring forever until someone picked it up. It was stupid but we got a good laugh.

I don't know if this still works, but I used to dial 57*-**** where the stars are the rest of your number i.e. 999-1212 becomes 579-1212. Wait for dial tone and hang up.

and 136 makes the phone keep rining, ie no gap between the groups of rings

I never did such things when I was a kid. I alwayus stayed out of trouble, however we used to have some freaky touch lamsps and som intercoms I found out that if I had the intercom plugged in and turned on and I hit the page button on it the lamps would turn on and off. that freaked my parents out :)
