Go figure. My first years (long long ago in a world far far away) rotary phones was all they had. And party lines with the old busy body listening in of course. [/quote] You are an old fart like me. Remember when the goal of manufacturing was to make products BETTER? When the goal changed from BETTER to CHEAPER, our doom was sealed. [/quote] The goal is not even that, it`s to be more profitable, which means to brake easier and sadly the same applies even to the expensive gadgets. [/quote]
I dug out an old Starlite desk phone that was originally thrown away in a garbage dump, opened it up, replaced the original connecting cord with a modern phone cord with a plug for a phone jack, oiled the rotary mechanism to make it work smoothly, cleaned up the outside, plugged it in and it worked like a charm.
The phone company's system still recognizes the clicks made by the phone to dial the number.
There's something natural about using a rotary phone than all that artificial push button and texting crap that eventually gives you ADD(Attention Deficit Disorder). With a rotary dial, you actually have to think and concentrate when dialing the number so you don't screw up and have to redial.
