Quote from: don zee on April 03, 2013, 12:40:50 AMWhat's all this about these newfangled rotary dial phones? Can't we just get back to asking someone to connect us? Just like our kids do? Actually i always enjoyed the physicality of real dialing - the weight of a metal phone, the sound of a single dime dropping into a pay phone- the numbness caused by holding the phone between head and shoulder - especially with a stupid princess phone. Most of all, like a good detroiter I love phones available in any color I want= as long as it's black.
