Fortell Systems

Written by Phantom Phreaker
Call The Alliance at 618-667-3825

Fortell systems seem to be a system to monitor lines. They can only be used to monitor lines within their own NPA.
A Fortell system is at 716-955-7750. Whene you call, you will hear:

'Hello. This is the Taradyne Fortell system. Please enter ID code'

The ID for this system is 722877*. After you type that in (DTMF) it will ask 'please enter line number' where you then type the PRE+SUFF of the number you wish to check within the NPA of the Fortell.

After you enter a number, it will repeat the number you entered. Now it will ask you to 'please enter mode'.

The modes are:

1-Calling on other line
2-Calling on test line
3-Line test results
If you enter mode 1, you will have these commands available:
1-Fault location
2-Other testing
7-Test ok, Monitor
8-Hang up
9-Enter next line number
If you enter 7 here, it will repeat what you selected, and ask for an ID code which can be any 6 digit number followed by a *.

Now it will dial and tell you:

'Subscriber busy-busy-monitor test in progress conversation on line-short on line'

2-Monitor test
3-Overide and test
4-Wait for idle
If you enter 2, (Monitor Test) it will tell you the busy status again.

If you enter 3, it will override, or tell you 'Not available in this CO'.

If you enter 4, (Wait for idle) it will wait until the line is idle.

If you enter 1 (Fault Location) at the main list you will get these options:

1-Open location
3-Short location
4-Cross location
5-Ground location
8-Hang up
If you enter 2 (Other testing) here, you will have these commands:
2-Loop Ground OHMS
3-Dial tone test
5-Pair ID
8-Hang up
If you enter Mode 2, you will have these options:(Other testing)
2-Other testing
7-Test ok, Monitor
8-Hang up
9-Enter next line number
It will repeat what you selected. If you select 2 here, you will now have these commands:
2-Loop Ground Omhs
8-Hang up
If you select 7 at the main list after mode 2, it will ask for an ID which is any 6 digit number followed by a *. Now it will dial and check the number. If the number is busy, it will say 'Subcriber busy-monitor-test in progress- conversation on line-short on line-please hang up-waiting for idle' Now you can just type * to go back to the main list of commands.

If you enter MODE 3, if you have done a test before, it will give you the results of the test. If you haven't done a test, it will tell you so with 'No test results available'

You can abort back to the main commands list by typing a *.

By typing a 9 at several places you will be taken back to the beginning where it asks you to 'enter line number'
