Quote from: Victor Laszlo on June 25, 2017, 05:45:05 PMThe permanently installed metal box with the screw terminals is called the "network." Every 500-type phone and any derivative has one. The one in your phone is a 425B. Calling it anything else can cause confusion.
Quote from: Jim Cummings on June 25, 2017, 12:23:31 PMThe phone that needs cleaning/polishing has a C NET 425E module dated 12-64. The date stamped in white letters on the base is the same. I'm guessing it's not bakelite but rather black plastic.
