Phreaking is less common due to the responses of various telephony companies to stamp it out. The rise of the Internet has seen 2600 cover cracking/hacking/geeking as well.

yeah, i know phreaking is pretty much dead... what what exactly is "2600" - not the organisation, but the number itself. what does it represent, do you know?
