There were a number of phone dongles, bluebox, redbox, whitebox being the most famous. When added between your phone / modem & computer (before the introduction of digital telephone exchanges) they could do something to avoid the call being billed to your home.

I dont know exactly how they worked... or why... or if they were very successfull I just know they used to use them
