Quote from: HarrySmith on January 03, 2011, 01:33:29 PMWay back when I was 15 years old and was having my fist telephone installed in my bedroom I had a very friendly installer. I followed him around as he ran a new line from the pole to the house then up to my bedroom asking a thousand questions. He was very patient and answered all of my questions, even gave me a tool for removing the fingerwheel to change the dial card and showed me how to use it. He also showed me a three digit code to ring back and another that would give the number. I used those codes for many years then they stopped working. Today I cannot recall what the numbers were. BTW that first phone was a black 500.
