That's a nice looking phone, Marty.

It appears that it was converted from a 501 to a 500 by removing the tube.  It was a common change as party lines went out of favor, and was probably done when the dial was replaced.

Does your camera have a macro mode that will let you get the close-ups in better focus?

Better pictures would be valuable, so Paul's question is fair. If you want to post the make/model of the camera, I'd be glad to look it up, and try to help.

Marty,

Your photos indicate the source is a Nokia E73.  I'm not familiar with that one, but a search pointed to this thread.  Apparently there is a macro (close-up) mode, but it's apparently not obvious how to use it.  If you can figure it out, you will be able to get better close ups.  Perhaps your manual or on-line support can help.

Hi All;
THANK YOU, Paul-F... I will look at some of the options, but if people more knowledgeable than me can't figure it out.. I doubt I could either..
THANK YOU Marty
