    [Phone "Phreaking"] Get instant Service from Blizzard Customer Support



    Donate to Remove Ads, Get ShoutBawx - Elite Forum Access
    (this is posted with GZ's permission, based of an OOLLDD thread in the news section.)

    Last week, my authenticator died. i did a quick search of Ownedcore to see if there was a method of getting into the system faster.

    i stumbled upon a year and a half old thread in the news section and decided to try it out.

    Called in, selected English, got a message about "longer than normal hold times" then tried the exploit. was speaking with a CS rep INSTANTLY. total time spent on phone was around 2 minutes, including time listening to pre-recorded messages. total time on music hold less than 5 seconds.


    What we are trying to do: Bypass the Enter queue and speak to a CS Rep immediately.

    Method: Start your call as normal. select your language. Select the type of assistance you require as normal. Wait through any prerecorded messages. once you are truly on music hold, press the following on your telephone keypad: 1111112 (one 6 times, then 2)

    This has been tested on the North America Phone System, in English Language.
    Further testing may be required for EU phone systems.

    The original post is here: http://www.ownedcore.com/forums/news...honecalls.html
    I have posted this after receiving confirmation from Ground Zero that it was Acceptable for me to do so.


    EDIT:

    Cecu had another good, related tip to share, dont rep me for this suggestion, as it is his idea.

    The one I posted was as follows:

    -Call blizz
    -Select the option to go through the "automated support system, rather than asking for a rep"
    -once the automated system realizes you dont want its help (just hit random numbers) you are put into a "priority que" and usually answered within 10 seconds.
    THIS method still works AFAIK.


    either way though, you posted a method I didnt know about and you got permission of the original poster to revive it. Thanks
    Sorry if I seemed like I was flaming (would rep if I could)

    Can you provide a link to your original post? when i did a search on this topic, GZ's post was the only 1 i found describing this. there were some other methods that didn't seem applicable anymore, but no other posts like this one.
