Title: FiveStarPhones.Com - Has anybody else seen this website?
Post by: WEBellSystemChristian on September 05, 2013, 07:15:09 PM
My dad was looking for a handset cord boot online, and found this strange site:
 
http://www.fivestarphones.com/index.php?cPath=59&osCsid=b74febc98ecd10bfcaf28e14b20de475

I found parts for 1500, 2500, 3500, 1554, 2554, and other later model WE phones.

I hope it doesn't sound like an advertisement, because it isn't.

There are at least 11 threads mentioning Five Star Phones on this forum and many more on other listserves so it is a well known source of parts, etc.

However, even though I have used them myself, I have not come across any parts that are specific for 1500, 3500 or 1554 instruments. If they do carry those parts it would be a boon for collectors of these sets.

I figured since it looked like a low-quality website, it wasn't very well known.

Yessir, that's one of our sites. I think we're updating the look of it, I agree it definitely needs an update.  The parts we have up on Fivestarphones are new reproduction parts rather than original parts. 

As far as the 1500, 3500 or 1554 parts.. Fivestarphones is our modern day landline phone store, with businesses that need emergency telephones etc.

Your sentence “As far as the 1500, 3500 or 1554 parts..” is confusing.

Does this mean you are providing parts for 10-button and Autovon sets?

Also are Fivestarphones parts shipped from Canada?
