    I remember coming across a YouTube where children are baffled as to what a rotary dial telephone is and how it works.

    @Jo Clear,
    They should still work. Most central office switching systems in north America still accept dial pulses as well as touch tones.

    Through the 5-ESS switches, you are correct. But the new 6-ESS need a dial-pulse-decoder for each line that has old phones connected.

    They do I kept mine but never use it. It’s a relic that belongs in a museum.

    My grandpa had a phone, similar to



    on a farmhouse kitchen wall.

    It was on a party line. Each phone on it had an assigned number of rings; but if you got a call, it was a given that the others on the party line would be listening as well.

    My best friend’s mom and one of my aunts ran the switchboard in town (every call had to be operator assisted back then).

    Provided your party line wasn’t busy, you turned the crank, on its right side, to get the operator’s attention and make a call. You would speak into the opening in the front and listen using the receiver, hung on its left side.

    Or maybe you clicked the receiver holder to get the operator’s attention — it’s been too long and I was too young to make any calls.

    Anyway, I wonder how long it would take the YouTube video kids to figure out what it was.

    My older touch tone phone is hooked up next to my cordless set. Touch tone still works when the power fails. It has come in handy…

    Yes…but that is a Classic Ziggy Phone. Worth more than a cell phone.

    You are lucky to have kept it…Wish I would think ahead sometimes…

    @mabrndt

    Thanks for that treat. Your last is a very good question that could have offer some pretty funny answers.
