    This might not be posted in the right section... And I apologize if it isn't. Hell... You might not even think it's related to BlackHat but it's definitely being used for BlackHat purposes.

    Anyhow...

    Here goes... I am using analog phone lines right now to connect to dialup modem. I signed up for AT&T Unlimited Long Distance. Well come to find out it doesn't "cover" modem calls. So they slapped me with a huge bill and are telling me I have to pay it because the Long Distance plan DID NOT cover modem call - Guess that is a fine print thing. Sucks!

    Anyhow... Does anybody know if I can use Cox Digital Telephone, Vonage, or Magic Jack to place long distance calls with an analog modem? Will these VoIP or Digital services allow me to dial and connect with a traditional analog modem? Will it work?

    Basically.... Will the Digital Telephone Service and/or VoIP carry the analog signal across the line? I know since it coverts it to digital there might be issues. Is anyone doing this?

    Maybe Skype

    But VOIP or any thing like that won't work skype might allow you to try but you might not get any were with a dial up connection

    try and find a provider in an international country?

    if you connect to the internet through them, it'll be a long distance call, thus eliminating cost.

    Only ones i've found are 0845 numbers, which would still be billed, sorry dude.

    I'll have another look though in abit.

    used myself dialup connection years ago , what I can tell you with sure its , the modem calling is different than phone calls , depend by your location and about company's which are on your ares, try and see if they have maybe pppoe / cable modem / adsl , or any other similar service for internet ( data connection ) , since phone lines are created to support voice calling ( well it's true they can support data too - but you see with your eyes the amount from the bill lol .... )

    About vonage *( you named up ) , they have their own modems versions and I don't think this modems are analogical ( i`m afraid they are digital ) it's different way to transport the dates ...
