What do I need ?
A) One Phone Cord - 5 Inches or so
B) Alligator Clips (Optional)
Wow ! That’s it ? Tell me More ! How do I set It Up ?
Well, Take your phone cord, and remove the Outer insulation. Now you should have 4 wires inside of it, Red, Green, Black, And Yellow. All you need for most things are Green and Red, so save those. Take either the Black or The Yellow and strip about 3 Inches with a wire stripper or a Knife. Now cut off 3 inches of Uninsulated wire and, voila, you have a really thin wire. Now, take this wire, and go to your neighbors back yard. Look for Their Power Box, Near it should be a small grey (or beige, or some ugly color) box with te Bell on it. Open this up (it should come right off, if not, use a 7/15 Hex Driver) Now inside you should find four more pegs. Look for the Pegs with
a Green or Red wire coming out of them. If you have a Beige Box, hook it up to Make sure there Is a Dial Tone. If therre is, Tie one end of your small wire to the peg with the Green Wire coming out of it, and another to the one with the Red coming out of it. Now use your beige box on it again, there should be no dial tone, and pressing buttons should be ineffective. Congratulations, you’ve disabled their fone line.
Something you might want to try is to make the small wire longer, and stuff it in to the back of the box where there is a jungle of wires, so it will be more unnoticable. The more discreet, the better.
