When the phone rings it sends a 100V pulse. This will fry anything you might want to plug into it except a phone.

Phone company is onto that scheme... It's been well known since the early days of Phreaking. They monitor the current on their lines so they will catch you, disconnect you, and charge you. Even more fun, they've been known to deliver random power surges intended to dammage anything you may have plugged in. Don't do it.

Don't try tapping the phone - you'll break it. L
