Standard issue touchtone for 1973
« on: December 31, 2010, 02:30:07 PM »
I'm trying to figure out which phone we had growing up. It would have been around 1973, I know it was touch tone. Does that mean it was a 2500d? Any other suggestions? I believe it was blue.

Obviously it had to be an AE 80 Touch Call as the 80E Touch Call wasn't available until 1975. This is assuming that it was a regular desk phone, not a Wall Phone, Starlite, spacesaver, panel phone or Styleline. If it was light blue it was "Forget Me Not Blue".

Okay, I'll admit that I am just proding you for a bit more info such as what operating company you were served by which would determine what manufacturers phones they used etc!

Happy New Year,

Terry

hahah...I guess less isn't more in this case :) We were in Southern New Hampshire (Nashua), so I'm thinking it was new england bell? Maybe new england telephone. We moved in to the house in '73, it was a desk phone and I do believe it was blue.
