lol, I like that but it would be awkward to carry around. It would be handy at home or in the office or shop. Hmmmm :cool:

On the light side, my phone that im looking at now is a square rotary installed
in this house when my parents got married in 1940. It has survived the test
of time no digi readouts no batterys alway works god forbid a crook comes in
and i'll clock him with the receiver.

where is the wooden booth with light and fan to fit around you?

Nice! But isn't that bluetooth thingy more convenient?

Yeah, but not as cool and eye catching in a crowd.

If you want to be cool in a crowd, maybe you should try talking to your shoe!:) It worked for Maxwell Smart.

There is something to be sais about the old mechanical phones, I never had to replace one, or had any trouble with it. I have replaced several of the newer digital wireless phones in recent years. Not to mention having to replace batteries. I remember one rotary wall phone with a 25ft cord in particular. I guess you can call it "progress". Bob.

The new cell phones can do just about anything one can imagine, but they do have one little problem... They have trouble taking or making PHONE CALLS!:(
