I've started using an old cream rotary dial telephone at home and love hearing its old ring tone...
It sounds wonderful!!
I was about to go completely mobile when I found it, in working condition, in an Op Shop for $10. It uses no power so - not only is it saving money it will work during a power cut.... Now thats a bargain!
The green phone came from Japan and needs adapting before I can start using it and hear its ring tone..
