Quote from: andre_janew on November 24, 2014, 06:56:53 PMI will be getting a 1962 WE 500 without a dial and an inoperable ringer within the next few days. I guess that would make it a 500D. It is my hope that there is nothing seriously wrong with it and that maybe a simple wiring change or fixing a broken wire will make the ringer work. I bought it on eBay and paid $.99 for the phone and $17.90 for the shipping and handling for a grand total of $18.89. I have no idea what type of network this phone will be using. If it is a 425E type network, then the wiring diagram on this page will help me. If not, I may have to look elsewhere.
