It would appear that phones with a cord from the handset to the phone are a thing of the past.
My daughters phone is on the blink so i lent her a old phone that has a cord.

Grandson - :eek:What is that?:confused:
Mother - Its a phone:rolleyes:
Grandson - :eek: Whats it sound like when it rings?:confused:
Mother - Just like any other phone:rolleyes:
Grandson - Oh:biggrin:

He has a sense of humor so still trying to work out if he was having a go at us or not:confused:

Strange thing Gibbo. I have heard ring tones on loads of mobiles, that resemble the tone on those really old bakerlite phones.

I bought a house that had one of those old phones already connected, and the telecoms company wanted me to change it.:mad:

Oh no......we kept that little beauty.;):)
