I switched out my desk phone from Red/Blk to Brown... was getting tired of my "Firemens" phone... still a TT but a different color...AND this one has a 15' handset cord....Nice...(or is it 12'??)

That's the nice thing about having a number of phones.  Rotate 'em when the mood strikes you.

Cool! I have 2 brown 564s, but no 256X. One is missing a pickup button, and the other reeeeeeeeeeks of cigarette smoke (airing out isn't helping; may need a dishwasher cleaning...).

Favorite Phone: Western Electric Trimline - it just feels right holding it up to my face!

I had that problem with a laptop given to me.... the previous owner smoked like a chimney and kept all the windows shut....unit reeked of nicotine and I had to replace the CPU fan cleaned up nicely, but the smell was terrible!
