Hi T:

You would have to -- either that, or re-write the program on its eprom,
and I just don't have that ability ... The Millenium calls home for
everything -- The Millenium is the most secure payphone on the market and
to keep it that way, information on the phone is very hard to find. Only
details which are publicly available on the phone will be noted here.

Millenium phones call daily to their "hive" and contain internal alarms
to monitor activity on the phone. Dial tone heard when the handset is
raised is computer generated, and the rate tables are contained within
the phone and programmed and updated by the Millenium manager. A
scrolling advertising line on the phones may also be programmed via the
Millenium Manager to show up to 20 advertisements on the display's
second line. The Manager can provide constant checks of the phone right
down to the number and denominations of coins in the box, credit card
verification, self-diagnostics, logging of operational notes such as
cleaning and delivery directory dates, and detailed call activity
statistics which may be used for planning.

The Millenium is available with or without a smart card reader or a
multicard reader option allowing users to use magnetic stripe
commercial credit cards, calling cards and smart cards / chip cards,
and with an optional jack which allow users with portable computers to
connect through the phone. The options are seemingly endless.

-- E.T. Call Home - the Millenium Way!
