@mShred - Yeah, I've been gone for a long time. From just about everywhere actually. It's not intentional though. Lot of different things pulling me in different directions, so it's sometimes difficult to balance all of it.
Anyway, this following statement seems to be the closest I've come to any sort of legal disclaimer.
Exploring the telephone network wasn't (and isn't) illegal, in and of itself. But phone phreaks sometimes used their skills to make free telephone calls, and that was illegal. Additionally, some phone phreaks wiretaped telephones or stole telephone company equipment, which also got them into hot water.
Granted this is for searching using the term "phreaking". If there are any other legal terms for it, I have no idea what they are, but I'm sure they would bring up statutes, instead of blog posts. Either way, to me, that reads pretty much like the stuff most of us associate with hacking in general. It's perfectly legal to know how an SQL Injection is performed, it's perfectly legal to perform one in a test environment (such as HTS or your own server), it's just against the law to do it for real, unless you've been hired as a pentester.
Additionally, things such as free phone calls don't even concern me, and isn't one of the aspects of this that really intrigue me either, because I'm fortunate enough to have unlimited long distance included in my monthly bill. So giving myself a free phone call from two feet away doesn't even make sense.
As far as getting in touch with the cyber division directly, I'm kind of having a hard time doing that. I've found loads of numbers for both the local and federal offices, but the cyber unit contacts seem to be reserved for reporting crimes only. I can't seem to find anything for general inquiries. And, of course, thanks for your reply as well. I want to do this, so I appreciate all the help.
