Hello from the land of Cincinnati Bell
« on: July 08, 2014, 07:46:29 AM »
A newbie hello from Northern Kentucky...Independence actually. I've been bitten with the need to get
a WE 500 working that was given to me by my brother. He had picked it up in an auction in a box of
items. Goal, small as it is, is to get it online and working and give him a call.

Welcome to the forum, a great place to find anything and everything you need to know to get that 500 working.

How about a few pictures of the phone? Front, bottom, inside base and inside shell along with what, if any problems, you are having with the phone.
