This seller has a few nice looking phones up right now. Not on our handles list?

also this painted 5302. I never trust the one picture straight on auctions, but that's just me. No mention of paint in either auction...Doug

I asked the seller if it was painted and he confirmed that it is. Still a very nice blue 302....Doug

Doug, What tipped you off that the 302 was painted blue? With this one pic wonder of an auction I can't tell. And if you can see it, you would think the seller would have seen it too.

Hey Doug...Grooved handset set off my alarm. Whoever did it, its a nice job and a good place holder. The pink 5302 is also really nice as well. BUT....its Tough to spend that kind of money without more pictures. I am always leery of one picture auctions, especially when you get 12 for FREE. ....I thought I was the "other Doug'....Doug

Well, that confirms it. Kidphone is Doug so Wallphone must be "Other Doug" or "One of the Dougs". But of course, Kidphone is "One of the Dougs" as well. so...I'm confused....still.
