LOL Tommy at my age your are still a kid My introduction to telephones was when I was a kid also. As I said in my introductory post, I use to go to my friends houses and ask them or their parents if I could have their phones for trade. In other words I would offer them a black 500 for example if they would let me take their turquoise trimline. Many times they didn't care and said if you know how to disconnect (they were still hardwired at the time) it go ahead. I still have all those phones to this day
