    Unfortunately that design of phone is the exact same as the one I used at work back in the late 70s/early 80s, and is thus slightly depressing.

    I like the styling of those old phones - but I also like to have caller ID and the ability to store numbers which I can 'dial' with a few key strokes.

    Also. as Ian has said, there is no provision for dealing with menu systems. Could they not have included both a * and # key?

    I was tempted by one of the old bakelite efforts but decided I couldn't face the rigours of the rotary dial.

    I don't know, just billed as late 70d/early 80s GPO. Might be a model number on it, I'll have a look when it arrives.

    I very rarely use my landline so not really an issue and I avoid calling places with a menu system like the plague. Obviously it predates the horror that was the introduction of menu systems.

    It's just for emergencies in case the network is down or my mobile packs in or something. The phone it is replacing is only a couple of years younger than this one (A Southwestern Bell Telecom FA300) but the membrane below its rubber keypad has almost perished. You can still dial but you have to press the buttons really hard, ideally with a biro or something, and that was getting a little tedious.

    I always have it switched off to incoming calls anyway as the only calls I get are from people trying to sell me some crap. But I did want something that looks a bit anachronistic.

    Was tempted by some of the fancy 1990s Scandinavian jobs like B&O but your talking about paying £150 or more and I decided that was a bit silly. Anyway, just a bit of fun.
