I found this old AT&T telephone set, presumably imported from the "States", in a box of assorted junk that came from a farm dispersal sale (or should that be 'disbursal' ?) a little while back.
It does actually work though the line cord is a bit iffy.. The plug (wall socket end) is noisy and scratchy if you wriggle it about in the socket, and the plug at the 'phone' end has had its "tang" broken off, so it pulls out of the phone very easily - can you get replacements for those?
I tried a typical British/European telephone line cord, but it seems to have a different wiring arrangement to the American jobbie and doesn't work.. I'm wondering if a basic modem cable would do the job, but to be honest, I'd prefer to keep its original line cord because it's the correct colour (or perhaps I should say color? ) for the phone, hence my asking if it's possible to replace the plug.
Ironically, it has an ordinary sounding, bland electronic ringer... I was hoping it would turn out to be an proper, 'classic', American style bell ringer.. A "Cow Bell" ringer, as I always call it!
