Welcome to the forum!

I'm looking forward to seeing your phones.

One of my first non-US phones was a Heraldo, brought as a gift by a couple visiting us from Spain, who had been tipped off that I was collecting phones.  It's one of the earlier photos on my site, on this page (scroll down):

Thank you so much for your welcome messages!

I'm here to share the things that I know/have, and ask for the ones I have no clue jajajaja

The "˝" has no "tilde", it's just another letter. The "tilde" is when you put it above some vowels, like "telÚfono", for example (I think you will guess what it means jijiji)

Russ Kirk, to see them, may be you can start watching some of my videos, but don't worry, I'll make posts of them ;)

david@london, I think the riiing in Spains is almost the same has in USA, I think it's a like bit longer there

paul-f, I saw your phone, it's the wall model, I have them desk and wall models, and also a keyset to! I'll need some help to make it work like it used to. I'll make post soon ;) Here is the link of the video of my wall Heraldo, I hope you'll enjoy it: http://youtu.be/-Ktwy7IKGo8

Welcome!  I'm jealous of your shelf space.  Most of my collection is in boxes.

Does that goes to Ben or to me?  :)

Welcome!
Now we are one more "foreigners" here.

I guess the European telephone history, and solutions are bit different from USA, and that has made many different ways of thinking telephone design, even when they usually are working well on all systems.

We are glad that you are all here. Having a good presence from countries outside of North America makes this a much better and more complete forum on phones.

Thank you to permit me to participate in your forum.

Unfortunately, there is no old telephones forum here in Spain, but that just make me to participate in yours and learn more things about US phones! I hope I will show you about European ones too ;)

How did you do the tilday? IT must just be my english version of windows.

Ben

Ben I think you were asking how to make the ˝.  Just do this.

For ˝: hold down alt and type 164 or 0241 on the numeric keypad

Thanks, for Spanish I've had to translate ever word with the symbols, so I don't butcher the spellings!
