Still, the only use I have found is the "kick" function I described earlier. Perhaps there were more of these or perhaps I am just lucky. Have you come across this function before?


I have never heard of using the little button by the cradle of some 40 sets as a way to use the set on a Magneto line but that doesn't mean anything. I only worked in big city environments so didn't see much of the rural type equipment setups. What you describe sounds like a viable arrangement.

I did see this little button (and the similar button on AE47 sets) used to get outside dial tone on old AE electro-mechanical PBX's AND for button / buzzer setups between boss and secretary etc.
