Introduction
« on: December 19, 2010, 08:20:13 AM »
Hi Everyone.  I'm Jack and I'm new to the forum.  I own two 302's one metal, one plastic which I use every day.  One was our house phone in Chicago when I was a kid.  (50's and 60's)  I just found it last year.  Thanks in advance for help and advice.

Hi Jack :) Welcome to our little obsession ;D
Very nice 302, it is great to have one with a real connection to your past. Enjoy!
Now you can start with color 302's or maybe stick with Black and just get all the different models, short ear, multiline, non-dial, magneto, etc :D

Welcome to the forum Jack.  You will find it to be a friendly place with lots of great information.

I think it's pretty cool that you still have the same phone you had when you were a kid. Neat!

Welcome.  Nice little 302.  Be careful around here or you will end up with a shelf of old rotary phones.   ;D

Or a room, or outbuilding, or all of the above.
