I have no qualms about acquiring a phone like one I already have.  Another black 500?  No problem!  All depends on it's condition and price.  It'll just make one more phone that I can use to trade or give as a gift, or maybe it'll take it's turn as the "daily driver".
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Whenever I buy a new phone and my wife asks, I just subtract 80% before telling her! Course, when she hears my answer, she probably adds 100% ;D

In my case, much experience in these matters has conclusively demonstrated that honesty is truly the best policy (unless one actually LIKES being in the dog house or sleeping on the couch!)  I would rather fess-up and reveal the true cost of my latest find right up front rather than suffer the inevitable consequences if/when my wife looks at my credit card statement and starts asking questions.  Your mileage may vary!

But when you have a wife whose policy is what's her's is her's, and what's mine is her's, you have to do that  ;)

I think that's the policy of EVERY wife!

     My goodness, I truly appear to have missed the proverbial boat! :o

     I've been divorced since 1985, (happily), so I thought, quite foolishly, it seems, in retrospect, that 'The Best Policy' was being single. ;)

     Oh dear, too late to mend my ways, now... :D

Best regards,

Terrence

Perhaps a problem is that not enough wives get a phone like this once in a while:

I think Peter asked the right question----no cutout for the dial. It also has a 139A backboard for mounting on a horizontal surface.
