It’s OK. He’ll have that cord tangled in a jiffy.
It’s ok, I feel like that when I have the USB charger plugged in….
To extend service, use a slinky antenna.
We keep an older phone (Trimline Princess I think it was called). It plugs into the wall with an RJ-11 jack. Why keep it? when the power fails, and the cell towers are jammed to capacity, the plug in phones will still work at their power comes through the wires from the phone company.
Note that the phone system even with the wired phones only had capacity for ⅓ of the people to talk. It has never been possible for ½ of the company to pick up the phone and talk to the other half. Note sure what the status is for Cellular phones.
Other fact, in the not too distant past, the 404 area code for Atlanta Georgia was the world’s largest toll free calling area. They split in into 404 and 770. It is still the world’s largest toll free calling area.
Also: Why was the govt so concerned about the breakup of AT&T and forcing them to let other companies use their lines? Scattered across the country are hardened communication switching sites that were designed to provide communications in the event of war. When AT&T broke up the question was who would be responsible for those sites?
Further side note – Go research the “secret” of The Greenbrier in W Virginia. Highly guarded secret until the 90s when a newspaper broke the story.
To feel nostalgic he should have the cord wrapped around him, multiple times. Yip yip yip yip yip
A few years back I saw online a USB charging station/bakelite phone from the 30’s. Your cell fitted into a space on the front to make " the dial" and you picked up the receiver to listen and talk on phone calls.
Make sure the conversation is not taped… 益
before there were tangled ear bud cords, there were twisted tangled telephone cords
What’s the Sellotape for?
Well it’ll keep him from losing it.
