    I think my phone company 10 years ago made me exchange my rotary dial trimline phone for a push button version…

    They have ringtones that sound like those phones.

    My rotary still works (and the ring is LOUD).

    Anybody old enough to know what these are?

    1) Party line.

    2) “Cricket”

    Be blessed.

    Moses: I’ve heard of a party line, but what is the cricket?

    Party line yes. Was “cricket” a local term?

    Remember Party lines? Sure do. Eight on a line. One pore ol’ lady had nothing to do all day but chat with her fellow shut-ins..(sorta the CB radio of its day) Lots of calls from the operator to tell her to GETOFF it, ‘cuz other people were trying to call IN! As late as the middle ’70’s I was on a party line when I moved to Ohio farm territory.
    ‘Cricket" (I think) was the ringers on those first push-button phones..They’d wake you up in the middle of the night with
    “What the heck is THAT noise coming from the kitchen??”
    (or wherever the phone was situated)

    Dial implies a circle, rotation, so touch tone keying is not dialing.
