Hi,
I don't know if it is the right place to post this.
I know that phone technicians when they come to your house to work with the phone line, they call a phone number. The number or the system (computerized) says that the number you are calling from is: blah blah.
So the phone technicians know what number is on the phone line they are working on.
I live in Canada (Ontario), and BELL technicians call a 1-800 number.
But I don't know the number, or any other way or number to know the number I am calling from.
I don't want to call my cell to see the number.
Can anybody help?
Nick at [email protected]

Also there are things called ANACs (Automatic Number Announcement Something) that will read back your phone number.

I did a quick search and included some links, if they old, search yourself

http://artofhacking.com/files/sounds/index1.htm
http://students.db.erau.edu/~weddj/phun.html

I just did this and dunno if its what you looking for, but saw it in a tutorial @ neworder.

Goto http://www.ureach.com and make an account. Write down the info. Call the number/extension with your cell phone.

Now wait a few minutes atelasst, and check online and in your messages you will see the calling number.

I know jackshit about phones and that is all I got.

The keyword (ANAC) is useful. I am doing research. That's what I needed.
Thank you.

They call an ANAC to get your number. Their not that hard to get, not really that useful :x.

Actually i'm from Ontario as well, and i know theres a lot of local ANAC's, call backs, and various test numbers. Most phone technicians i've seen around here use the local numbers and not 800's.

The one I've always used belongs to MCI. You dial 1-800-444-4444 and it says, "Thanks for calling MCI! We see you're calling from xxx-xxx-xxxx..."

I actually pay for the ureach.com service for my job and works pretty good as an ANI. The only thing is, they have to leave a message for you to see their number. The cool thing about ureach.com is that if someone is calling your home phone using *67 all the time and you want to know who it is, just forward all your phone calls to your toll-free ureach.com number! *67 is useless against ANI, as long as they leave a message you'll get their number.

Yeh RBCP, thats a good one, we've used it alot.

*67 doesn't work against toll free numbers. The reason for this is because the toll numbers are in essance private exchanges like the various government exchanges.

Windead, every state has numerous anac's, call backs, loops, test numbers, etc. Its because tech's are trained to use local numbers and not the toll free numbers. The toll free numbers are in essance a toll free foreign exchange to another number, which is local elsewhere.

If you read my PSAP text in the kbase you'll understand this a little better.
