Another recent addition:

      This one appears to be a 302 with a SC handset... all you sharp-eyed, more-experienced members please correct me if I'm wrong. Your enlightenment makes my day, and keeps my mind active! :D

     My guess is Independent Telco refurb, field, or otherwise. Es macht nichts; I can use all of the collective parts, or enjoy it as is. ;)

     >Update: The auction photos posted here, in no way, shape, or form, do this telephone justice! It arrived so shiny, clean, and polished, I was actually concerned the seller had shipped me the wrong one. Plug-n-plays perfectly, too! ;D
     Gotta love a cheap, gorgeous, metal 302, with a bonus SC 'horsehoof' handset 8)<

     ITT 2500, with ringer light.
   
     Hopefully, I can slap my black Cortelco shell, handset, etc., on this, to remedy the Cortelco's lack of 2-5-8-0 TT pad function. $15.15

I'd guess so, seeing as Cortelco used to be ITT... ;D

Thanks, twocvbloke!

     That was my line of reasoning, as well. One way, or another, I will make something work, so I can have a DTMF phone in my home office, for those times when I need * and #. ;)

     I love the ringer light on the ITT, but vastly prefer the black colour of the Cortelco.

Best regards!

This just in: a way to conserve some space in my office at home:

     WE 43A 'Space Saver', G7, year unknown... great working condition claimed, now I gotta find / make a subset.... :D

     (Been looking for an excuse, anyhow!) ;)

     <edit 19FEB13> I am guessing they meant 'G1', trying to decipher the sometimes inscrutable lettering on the handset...
     <edit 21FEB13>Apparently, according to searching the forum, the G7 quite possibly could be appropriate to this phone.> Reference:

Best regards...

You could probably use the network out of the Cortelco base to make the subset, Reduce Reuse Recycle!!! :D

     Interesting, and totally un-occurred idea.

     I do, indeed, Reduce Reuse Recycle!!! (Means there's absolutely no use, whatsoever, in rummaging through my dustbin.) :D... Also means, both my parents lived through the Great Depression, and WWII. :o :o :o

     When I toss anything out, it's a goner, chum, and no mistakin'!) And not recycleable! ;)

     Thanks, as always, for your 2d; it is always appreciated, me ol' china! ;) And that's no porkies! :D

G1 / 211 / Hangup / "Spacesaver"

     Got another 211-type phone, G1, with a F1 handset... ;D Wow!, I really love these phones!!!

     I just have to find, or make, some subsets, now. ;) Any un-needed 302 bases floating around, out there, for cheap? ;)

Best regards!

If you open them up the date is stamped on the inside. I forget exactly where, I have not opened one in a while but it is there.

Does one really need a subset with the space-saver phones, or just a ringer?

Thanks, for the info, Harry!

     I haven't opened either one of them, yet. (Haven't tried to figure out how.) The first one depicted, with the G3 handset, has G1 stamped into the body, below the switchook, and G7 rubber-stamped in ink below it, so it might be refurbed, my guess.

     The one with the F1 handset just has the G1 stamped into the body. It also has the Z/Operator/0 dial plate, vs the later one on the G7 set.

      I will have to do some exploring inside, and see what I can learn.

Best regards!

Nick,

     If memory serves me correctly, ??? I seem to recall reading (here) that there's nothing inside the case but the dial, and switchook mechanisms.

     I see many of them on epay, and elsewhere, being sold with a 684, or 685 subset, removed as one from the previous installation, so I am leaning heavily towards subset, at this time.

     Any input, information, enlightenment, tutelage, etc. is most certainly welcomed from those who know far more than I about these lil' darlin's!

     I'd settle for a place to start looking in the BSP's, if we simply must do this the long way about... ;)

Best regards!

Terrence

The one large screw in the center on the bottom comes out to disassemble it.

Thanks, again, Harry!

     I was figuring the bottom side must hold the key, since there are no screws, elsewhere.

     I appreciate the confirmation. I shall, most likely, tinker about a bit, once I've put the bird to bed for the night. :)

Best regards!

     Been poking around in the G7 set.

     Note: No birdies have been ignored, or abused during this; he's been in here, 'helping' me ;), and jamming on some of his music. (Drowning Pool)  ::)

     I took the G1/G7set apart, to see what makes her tick...

     First of all, I referred, quite incorrectly, to it as ' the one with the G1 handset'. It has a G3.

    Well, then...we shall have to remedy that...

     The only date on the frame / skeleton inside, was a nice, clear, red/orange inked I 39. 8)

     The dial shows 4L73 in black ink.

     The rx element bears the date 8 28 68, the rx cap has 67...
