How to Start A Conference w/o 2600hz or M-F by The Jolly Roger (Originally an Apple ][ file, forgive the upper case!) THIS METHOD OF STARTING THE CONF. DEPENDS ON YOUR ABILITY TO BULLSHIT THE OPERATOR INTO DIALING A NUMBER WHICH CAN ONLY BE REACHED WITH AN OPERATOR'S M-F TONES. WHEN BULLSHITTING THE OPERATOR REMEMBER OPERATOR'S ARE NOT HIRED TO THINK BUT TO DO. HERE IS A STEP-BY-STEP WAY TO THE CONF.: 1. CALL THE OPERATOR THROUGH A PBX OR EXTENDER, YOU COULD JUST CALL ONE THROUGH YOUR LINE BUT I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT. 2. SAY TO THE OPERATOR: TSPS MAINTENENCE ENGINEER, RING-FORWARD TO 213+080+1100, POSITION RELEASE, THANKYOU. (SHE WILL PROBABLY ASK YOU FOR THE NUMBER AGAIN) DEFINITIONS: RING-FORWARD - INSTRUCTS HER TO DIAL THE NUMBER. POSITION RELEASE - INSTUCTS HER TO RELEASE THE TRUNK AFTER SHE HAS DIALED THE NUMBER. + - REMBER TO SAY 213PLUS080 PLUS1100. 3. WHEN YOU ARE CONNECTED WITH THE CONF. YOU WILL HERE A WHISTLE BLOW TWICE AND A RECORDING ASKING YOU FOR YOUR OPERATOR #. DIAL IN ANY FIVE DIGITS AND HIT THE POUNDS SIGN A COUPLE OF TIMES. SIMPLY DIAL IN THE # OF THE BILLING LINE ECT. WHEN THE RECORDING ASK FOR IT. 3. WHEN IN THE CONTROL MODE OF THE CONF. HIT '6' TO TRANSFER CONTROL. HIT '001' TO REENTER THE # OF CONFEREE'S AND TIME AMOUNT WHICH YOU GAVE WHEN YOU STARED THE CONF. REMEMBER THE SIZE CAN BE FROM 2-59 CONFEREE'S. I HAVE NOT FOUND OUT THE 'LENGTHS' LIMITS.
