the reason I asked was that the filter module fits in the NID, but won't mount.  so I was hoping the Part number might give us a clue as to whom made it. I hate it when there is no manufacturer ID on stuff, run into this with computer parts at times too!

Auction Talk / Phone Bill with flag cancellation mark
« Last post by HarrySmith on Yesterday at 06:15:43 PM »
This may be off topic, if so please remove but it is phone related. Someone is selling 2 old cancelled envelopes from phone companies. One is from NET&T out of New Hampshire, it has an unusal mark, the cancellation is in the image of a flag. I am not an avid stamp collector though I did some when I was young but I have never seen this before. Anyone familiar with it?

The handset cord looks to me like an AE80 type, and it has wires in colors inside of green and yellow, which weren't used on WE handset cords. Also the G3 handset strain relief is too big to fit neatly in the F1 handset hole without sticking out way too far, which is why it wasn't used. So it's likely an AE cord. Terry or Stub may want to confirm that.

Not sure about the manufacturer. It shouldn't matter too much, as the protectors all serve the same purpose. I was taught that only the active pairs need protectors, so I feel you only need two. As far as filters, if the second line is only for pair bonding your xDSL service (and no voice communication) you likely won't need the second filter. We don't put them on second lines, which we call "delinked" even though they still have dialtone and we can ANI them.

kind of like Christmas decorations, it's only available for a limited time! but from what you say, these were more of a trophy type phone.  only given to bell employees that exceed their expectations! (or at retirement) so, $400.00 is a fair price for the phone! as it is a trophy!

I think the imperial princess phones were available to the public. Some of the other WE sets  may be as well.
The only  "official" ones that I have heard of was the 1-in-a-million. That story is one that has been around for a long time. I don't think anyone has ever found any official document that states that. I had the story verbally confirmed by a high ranked WE executive long ago.

the reason I asked was because my NID is an unknown brand, all it says is "Qwest" on it. the modules that the unit uses are P/N:15412EP-2D ULM Series.  Do you happen to recognize the part number and can tell me what brand it is? My Neighbor was a contractor also for the phone company and gave me a bunch of NID cases. I pulled all the modules out of them and put them all in the on my house, a total of 4 to bring the full count up to 6. Today I was cleaning up my wiring on the NID and added another whole house DSL Filter for line 2. I'm having the second line activated on Thursday. The main objective here is to find the proper whole house DSL Filters that fit my NID because right now I pulled the modules 4-6 out of the unit to make room for the filters I have and they are basically just hanging by their wires on the box. everything is working, so no problem there. I'm just trying to find the proper parts for my NID.

I'm a contractor for BellMTS, and they've supplied us with a bunch of different brands and models over the years. Wilcom, Excelsus, Comtest. Oddly enough, we started getting Tii parts within maybe the past year, but only their "voice intercom switch" for cutover/porting of the customers existing number from the competitor.

That allows us to go in, connect all services, then the port request goes through within 3 business days. After that, the customer can disconnect the competitors phone equipment and return it. They used to have us go out on the dute date of the port request, but I think the competition saw that port request and would convince the customer to stay with them before we could make it out. I guess they finally wised up, since I've seen Shaw porting switches in homes for years! It's very competitive, even though landline service is going away quicker by the day it seems.
