Agents:

We got a note from our mole today:

I have a message I must send to you but I can not do it directly.

I have located payphones around the world and will send my messages to them between 14:00 and 15:00 in the local time of the phone. You must be at the phone to receive the message. Once the group has received all four messages meet me at the location given in the messages at 22:00 EST for further instructions.

Location 1: Kurfüstendamn 224, Far Left Phone, Berlin, Germany
Location 2: 212-206-0216
Location 3: 214-741-4308
Location 4: 415-550-9772

Good luck...

I wonder if all the calls to "have one in my city" actually worked or if this was a pre-planned mini-heist...

Either way... wish I could be there. Good luck local agents!

I would be there with you in a second. We can only hope that the final location where we have to meet is in Boston. I doubt it, but a man can dream…

Also, the time is EST, so you never know...

The Dallas one can be found on Google street view, but unless you're going there in person, there's not really any point to look at it except to just dream about being cool enough to be there.

These cities were chosen before this all started.  Pander all you want for MH3 but you're most likely SOL for MH2.

If it had been Southern Germany... but Berlin is way too far away sad
Anyways - I think its interesting that part of Mission 3 (the text description) and one of the phones is located in Germany. Wonder if that has to do something with the plot. All the Germans are probably still asleep (or ust woke up), so we'll need some time to figure out who's going there.

I'm quite sure that 214-741-4308 doesn't receive calls (just called it myself).  Be on the lookout for non-payphone possibilities.

PRIORITIES!!

At the top of this hour (1:00 am on the East coast) it is now 7:00 am in Berlin and we have 7 hours to identify someone to be at the location in Berlin.

The last phone call will be 2-3 pm local time in San Francisco (5-6 pm East coast time).

Plus we must ALL stand by to be available 5 hours later, at 22:00 (10:00 pm East coast time) to be at a location that will be revealed in these phone calls and then get that info back to everyone so that someone/s somewhere can attend a meeting to get more instructions.

Clocks ticking!!
