Small town in Nebraska
Lobby phone in 1800's hotel
I love the model 500. I have a 302 and a candlestick plugged in at home. I can't dial out with them over VOIP so I need to get the converter box.
What converter boxes are there?
I use a wall phone in the shop that is rotary.
I prefer them.Alot harder to dial the wrong number when you have to watch where you put your fingers.
That telephone was made during the 1950's. I used to install them when they were new!
Still want a candle stick, On my pbx, I may be able to answer but not dial out. My tele co one had a add on that was voice activated calling you could set it up w/a TTP but all toy had to do was say the name and it wou7ld dial. maybe when I get the cell in my house it could be use then.
My dad wouldn't give up on his rotary and wouldn't sign up for tone dialing service. I would have to use a phone tone generator after calling numbers that answered with a selection menu. ("Press 1 for this or 2 for that, etc.)
Any style phone you want.
Is there any way to make these phones work with dialing on todays modern circuits? My kids need to experience this.
Just plug them in and away you go. We keep a couple of rotary phones around as they are the only ones that will work during a power outage.
Whether you can dial out depends on what service you have. The last I knew you still could on AT&T. But I have Cox cable, and have to use a push button phone to call out.
That sucks, I guess it is a good thing to live somewhere that the technology has not gotten to far advanced
My phone was installed sometime in the 40's the
square base style. When it rings it sounds like
a phone not no cherpin bird. Still has the origional phone no. which is '31' which was your address.
And if a crook comes, I'll clock em with the receiver.
Here is one of many places to get a converter.
There used to be kits, but I cannot find them any more.
You can search for pulse to tone converter, or rotary to touch tone converter. They all cost about the same.
