This was a long time ago so I'm not sure, but I remember several details differently. First, I think you could press any of the A,B,C,or D keys as the call was going through, it didn't have to be D. Second, you had to be HOLDING DOWN the key at the INSTANT the operator answered, you couldn't just press it once while it was ringing. So when you heard the ringing start, you would press and hold a key, then listen really carefully through the loud touchtone and you could barely hear the click of the operator answering, then you could let the key up. Third, I think this was discovered by a guy named Sterling in Seattle, not Bob or Chris Bernay. I kind of remember Sterling telling me about this and thinking how weird it was that he was able to stumble across something like this.
