        Well what i used to do was just type generic terms in search engines like "phreaking, cellular hacking" etc and then read, read, read, read AND read!

        it would probably suit you best if you picked up some basic older knowledge... IE: what a beige, blue, and redbox are. Some telco lingo, POTS, what ss7 is, the different types of switches that used to be used etc.

        Then I would read some of the older phrack ezines, and I would go to and read a bunch of the cellular hacking papers.

        Get yourself an old phone and play with it, see if you can get NAM programming info for it etc.

        There are probably some other (better?) things you could do, but I think this will get you going...

            Starting points:

            I'll add:

            - Phrack ( Good practical files on AMPS. Sorry, but I can't remember which issues. You'll have to dig through to find them; Brian Oblivion's items were particularly good.

            - (previously This site has a wealth of info on both the landline and cellular systems.

              i find that (very basic) and good starting sorces. #cellular and #phreak on dalnet are good places to go to ask questions (too bad tron got perm banned from there).

              Also, is good for learning tech terms and acronyms that will come in handy when you need to SE.
