  1. The phone ring was loud enough for you to hear the phone ringing across the street too.

  2. Odie,

    There is actually an app for the iPhone that has a rotary dialer. Coupled with the old-fashioned "ringer" ring tone, it transports one back to a gentler day.

    Actually, truth be told, I miss the old, built-like-a-brick-sh!t-house GTE home phones. The had good audio and never went flying all over creation when you attempted to pick one up.

  3. I worked for Pac Bell for 30 years, and there's nothing like the old Western Electric Desk top dial set. I still have one in the bedroom that's 30 years old.

  4. Odie, Thanks for this post!

    It so reminds me of my dad in a very fond way and so wish he were still with us so I could show him this picture. The laughs over beers I can almost hear and taste now!

    Thank You!

  6. No. I am wishing for 1960's black phones because I could hear the ring outside.

  7. My wife (who refers to herself as an "analog person") says that she wants one of these.

  10. Supi, I know I know ... I just like to jib on occasion. But now you can take the cordless outside with you, and you don't have to run to answer it.
