My guess it's a microphone.
Are there any spots where a hook can be installed or a hole for the transmitter cord ? I don't see any.

American Samoa is real nice this time of year! We were there at the end of April last year. Didnít see a USPS storage facility but did see Charlie the Tuna on the Starkist Tuna processing plant.

Okay that all makes sense. I have an AE model 7 that I am contemplating parting out. Sent Ken a PM.

Next time, let's try for the USPS distribution center in Guam (link) ;).

Strange.  Mine rings all house phones strongly, every time and that is without the "extra ringing power" you can set in the firmware.   Maybe if you "forget" the connection on both the cell and the xlink, then re-pair.  Years ago I had a glitchy bluetooth connection between an old (first edition) Droid Turbo and the xlink.  They made and sent a custom patch that solved it.  Subsequent to that, I have updated the firmware with the routine download and the device handles my VOIP line (Comcast) my cell (Motorola Turbo 2) and my wife's cell (Galaxy 8) without a hitch.  One thing, I have found that trying to stretch the bluetooth range doesn't work.  I have our charge stations right next to the Xlink.  They will connect at 20-30 feet, but for good, clear connections, the shorter the better. Good luck.  Don't give up...I can tell you when the thing works right, it works very well.

Someone listed just the strip or in a junker Phone? And was this the strip that was missing the insulator?

Terry

I bought the terminal strip on eBay after watching for about 2 months as a BIN item. It was just the strip with all the screws and metal solder tab bands.

That's when I discovered I needed the insulator strip which I had to make.

Yes, I've seen junker parts phones on eBay with the strip in the base, just the base and column and strip. Those come up more often than the strip alone.

Do you have the EBay item # for the listing? Just wondering if the seller accepts returns.
