WELL... WENT TO HOOK UP ONE OF MY OLD 544 SETS AND OUND UP HAVING TO RESOLDIER A BUNCH OF BROKEN WIRES ON THE KEY SWITCH (OLD WIRING) WENT TO LOOK ON EBAY FOR ANY 544 PHONES AND FOUND NOTHING, DIDN'T EVEN SEE VERY MANY 564'S ONLINE... IS ANYONE EVEN SELLING KEY SETS ONLINE AT ALL? WOULD LOVE TO FIND A 588 KEY ASSEMBLY IF ANY OF THEM STILL EXIST... HAVING TO TRY TO REPAIR THE EXISTING KEY ASSEMBLY.... FRUSTRATING!

I still see them occasionally on E-Bay, so you should be able to find one. Hope you find one.  Good luck to you.

.... I seem to have learned that, on the web, writing constantly in capital letters is called "SCREAMING" from what I have already been told .... I'm sure i'm not wrong :D

wonderful! sorry about that... didn't even catch that... thanks for pointing it out. anyway, if anyone sees a 544 on Ebay, please share it with me... if anyone has any key telephone parts, I'm looking for a replacement 588 key assembly if I can't find the whole phone.

You were asking if there are any 544 phones left.  There is 554 on E-Bay right now. Maybe they are both the same thing?  E-Bay item # is 155289684429.  It is dated 4-58, so it is Soft Plastic, if the plastics are original!  (Soft Plastic is what everybody wants, as it is fairly rare nowadays.)

Sorry, the phone on E-Bay is indeed a 544.  554 is a wall phone.
