You dial your accomplice's number and say "IS THE WIZARD THERE?"When the accomplice hears this he knows the trick is on.His reply will be (HEARTS....CLUBS....DIAMOND.....SPADES).He should pause in between each suit.When he says the correct suit you say quickly "WIIZARD ? ". When he hears this he will start saying ACE...KING..QUEEN ...JACK...TEN...and so on.When he says the correct card you quickly say "WIZARD CAN YOU TELL THIS PERSON HIS CARD".You hand the person the phone and the wizard tells them their card.

    A more advanced method for magicians is to put the phone on speakerphone and get the person who picked the card to do all the talking. After the 'wizard' has been told what's going on, they ask for a clue. You speak for the first time and sarcastically say "Well, it's not the seven of diamonds" (or whatever) the wizard swears at you for not helping and everybody laughs, the point is though that throwaway sarcastic line told them exactly what the card they need to guess is. They then do a bit of play acting then correctly say the picked card. All you need to pull this off is for both you and the wizard to know how cards are matched, I use Mnemonica myself when I do it, but Si Stebbins would also work, hell, the standard ID setup would work at a push.
