I Just Bought A Rotary Dial Phone, Ask Me A Question.
The title says it all. Found it at the thrift store for $2.99 and I couldn't resist.

It's now on my bedside table, and its fully functional.

Inscribed in the metal panel on he bottom is "BELL SYSTEM PROPERTY NOT FOR SALE".

My grandma still has hers and it works great. She keeps it in the closet in case of power outages or an emergency call while the cordless is dead.

push the cradle buttons (the 'disconnect' clear posts) nine times, wait 1 second, press once, wait 1 second, press once.

Creamy and Strawberry for the win.

Now try adding some butter to the bread, then the peanut butter and jelly.

Ignore how bad it is for you, and try it once. It's freaking amazing.

I'd like to go quietly in my sleep, like grandpa did. Not screaming in terror like the people in the back seat of the car he was driving.

Only the audio....for now. Small LCD screen, solder, and a q tip with aluminum foil wrapped around it and it'll play the low quality videos. Well, it would if I could ask MacGuyver to walk me through it.

Re: I Just Bought A Rotary Dial Phone, Ask Me A Question.
Hmm, I still have two of those in effect at my house.

One is orange and the dial is in the earpiece. It was expensive in the '70s, hehe, the other is a "bat phone" basic black rotary.

They still work, even when the power goes out and the cordless doesn't.

You just can't use them to contact anyone that wants you to "press 1 for English".

Plus they make a great noise when you throw them as hard as you can in fit of apoplectic rage. Generally they are unscathed too.
