AE40 handset cord question
« on: June 30, 2020, 08:05:10 AM »
My AE40 has a large coil cord on the handset.
You can stick your finger inside of the coils.
Most cords have coils smaller, the size of a pencil.
Is this large coil cord normal for this model phone?
And is it possible to get the twists out of the cord, so the coils line up again?
