The crunchman was the one who figured out how to spoof a long distance call using a whistle from a captain crunch cereal box. This led to AT&T changing to out of band signaling, which led to #SS7 signalling Basically, when you press the buttons on a touch phone, they emit two distinct tones. the phone system used to transmit the tones in the same line as the voice. The whistle allowed you to bypass putting a dime in the payphone before making a call- you could call anywhere in the world for free. After the captain crunch incident, they switched to sending the tones on a different data path outside of the voice path, hence "out of band signalling".
