VZW prepaid daily not a bargain if using recycled numbers

Filed under: BULLSHIT,verizon circumvention,verizon sucks — Sagacious Himself @ 6:48 pm

VZW prepaid daily seems like a good plan for CL or other cloak and dagger operations.  However “new” activations are issued heavily abused numbers from a small recycled pool 😦

$2/day prepaid quickly loses value when DebtCollectorLucifer calls for Bob Smith from several different obviously spoofed numbers several times per day.

fortunately TXT is not billed until opened.  And much akin to TracFone some VZW non-sim prepaid phones offer better TXT windows if you’re not outright blocking TXT.  Combine with voip sms to sip/xmpp/fwd for less poor results.

mobile carrier really REALLY OUGHT to provide customers server side PBX finesse powers for TXT- and call filtration!

provide a better number with the GOTCHA that VZW policy prevents incoming calls during port-in process!!

If you need a phone and need inbound calling now you DON’T WANT VERIZON WIRELESS directly; you want a VZW MNVO like TracFone, StriaghtTalk, etc who allow incoming calls during port-in process

Open Garden and EFF Open Wireless movement : cirvumventing verizon wireless 3G fraudulent enticement ?

Filed under: DARPA,Geeky goodness,verizon circumvention — Sagacious Himself @ 1:43 pm

“openness” is great and all but if I am to share my internets with strange unknown persons I will want to prevent them visiting unsavory sites on MY connection.  (Yes, I have read footnote number one in the EFF article.)

  • no “adult” sites
  • no eye patch sites
  • nothing that would earn me a visit from the FBI

What open garden has no plans to incorporate RADIUS? Hosted style as in dd-wrt?

And yes it requires root but wait..  tutorials and videos for adding root permissions [SuperOneClick] is conveniently provided for windoze users.  Rooting still requires windoze piracy in VM… unless you want to buy a windows license to run in vm on *nix for a one time use.  Also a video on using z4root

EFF footnote two pitches a disturbing use of geoiplocation!  Now more than ever ISPs should offer opt-out from netblocks with fine grained geo location information.

Hazaa! how to disable SIP ALG on Westell 9100

Hazaa how to disable SIP ALG on Westell 9100em

ZERO help from verizon on this topic: ZERO help via phone, ZERO help via email, ZERO help via live chat, ZERO help via forum, ZERO help via paper mail.  All verizon avenues assert it is not possible to disable the SIP ALG in the 9100em westell.  Errrn! wrong.

Export conf, edit file, load conf, reboot.

advanced
yes
configuration file
save configuration file

remove ONE line: (alg(sip_udp))
save changes to file

advanced
yes
configuration file
load configuration file
advanced
yes
reboot

For a little more sanity modify the 9100em SIP service definition from only ONE UDP port, 5060, to include expected defaults-  or YOUR SIP and RTP ports.. you’ll be redefining the 9100 SIP service to be voip service as creating your own voip service definition will not suffice — thanks verizon for making “open” RG “better”.

Yes, delightfully you will be making multiple modifications in several locations in the config file: service, meh why ruin your fun you can find the rest right?  protocol(17) = UDP  protocol(6) = TCP.  For a little more joy craft some advanced filters (firewall settings, yes, advanced filtering) to allow traffic in, Initial Rules, from your ITSP server(s) or otherwise with the SIP/RTP ports you use. Enable rules logging to verify, syslog daemon preferred, but do not leave enabled.

Tested against
9100em hardware revision A
9100em hardware revision D

Only functional SIP ALG exists with Cisco (not linksys) and Juniper networks.  By default every NAT’ing device sold in a big box store has similar piss poor NAT.  PFsense for everyone!

@ verizon fios

Now that I have your attention.. I would like an option to receive an IPA lease from a netblock without correlation to my geographic position.  (this is not challenging for you to implement).  GeoIP location violates privacy and deters confident exercise of freedom of speech.

It would also be super to buy an additional IPA since this device was designed with that in mind.  That’d be easier than the solution for multi IPA I employ now which I won’t outline.

* 2010 update: the least painful way to escape fios cpe SIP ALG is to use SIP ports _other_ than 5060 on server (or proxy).  DEMAND your ITSP/VSP offer such ports or upgrade to one that does [viatalk].  DEMAND your VSP support SIP TCP & TLS.

mobile phone laptop cars? AlphaCOM rolling over in grave

AlphaCOM, pioneers of mobile PCMCIA cards, rolls eyes over “new” mobile phone company’s laptop cards.  It was cool at 1997 COMDEX.  19.2k with LOTS of compression?  Remember when I suggested bonding multiple cards TEN YEARS AGO?  Bonding isn’t new, but its time has come again.  Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots.  2x broadband > 1x broadband

But $49 is better than the $600 I spent four years ago testing cards from VerizonEvil Wireless and AT&T.  I had a less unpleasant experience tethering my laptop to my moto.

How to Do Nothing at Work, and Get Away With It

Filed under: category euthanized,Geeky goodness,Hackery,Humor,I am bored,verizon circumvention — Sagacious Himself @ 7:53 am

Stealing from verizon isn’t wrong, even if they’re you’re employer.  But stealing from any other employer isn’t cool.  Here are some tips for verizon employees (not that you work hard now… everytime I call you __ I __ have to educate you about how your own service works)

how to refresh new ringtones list on e815: OBEX transfer, or USB cable transfer

1) transfer new MP3 or MIDI ringtones to phone via OBEX transfer or via USB cable transfer
2) connect to phone via USB cable:
a) start PST 7.2.3
b1) rename the first exe in P2Kcommander to ext
b2) start P2Kcommander 3.3.0
3) browse to root of phone (/a/)
4) delete mytun*.*
a) this should be TWO files
5) disconnect phone
6) power off phone
7) remove battery for five seconds, reconnect battery, power on phone

VIOLA! sounds are now listed BOTH in media manager and in Ringtone details. No more need to reset phone entirely.

🙂

The downside is that ALL your contact-ringtone settings get mixed up. So you “get to” fix each one by hand. But this is a small irratation to suffer to avoid the other vexation of ghost files.

using gps features on e815 no hack

[#][#][4][7][7][1][end]

4771 stands for GPS1

and then it asks for an SPC code… enter

[0][0][0][0][0][0]

these steps will take you to the gpsOne menu, and modify the settings in the settings menu by

changing the lock status [3] to off, test mode [4] to off, sample count [5] to 1, and transport type [6] to DBM.

You can’t change the IP address or the IP port [without a SEEM edit]. In the GPS test menu, you don’t need the start application function either. All you need is the ‘Last Location’ function.

Make sure your phone is enabled to use the GPS function, not just the E911 function. [073887]
Press end to clear out back to the start screen

Dial 922 and stay on the line until some gibberish starts coming out of
the phone. * hang up, you need not stay on the line after that.

go back into the GPS menu and press last location. BOOM. There are your
Longitude and Latitude coordinates. Go to mapquest and enter your
coordinates here:

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/latlong.adp

* IMPORTANT: in some areas dialing 922 MIGHT connect you to emergency services. Do not hang up on them; instead POLITELY and PROFUSELY apologize explaining the number you did dial.

Once someone figures out how to sign BREW applications I imagine there will be some lovely homebrewbrew brewhaha (puns intended). Homebrewbrew GPS mapping software… better than Get It Now NAVItime. Since QPST, PST, et al are already pirated… its just the next step to pirate the software for signing applications 😉

Remember.. its not wrong to lie- or steal from- verizon.

preventing verizon from programming your e815 OTA

http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=304378

SPC: Allows you to define or change the Subsidy Lock Code. Leave this at 000000 if you want to be able to use Verizon’s OTA.

SPC Overwrite: Determines whether you want the carrier to be able to
change your subsidy lock via OTA programming. If you want to be able to
continue accessing these menus, I suggest setting it to “Forbid.”

hmmmmmmmmm
