I'm typing this on my tablet, so I'm not able to post the link. If you go to YouTube, access the Fine Bros channel and do a search for "rotary phones", there will be a match.

On one hand the video is funny...seeing how today's kids react to an 80's vintage Western Electric rotary phone....but I sure felt ancient by the end of the video. cry

Seeing the "Kids React to a Walkman" video made me feel worse. frown

I sent it to all my grand kids just to see what they think. I've got a few 500 sets and a 554 I'll break out next time they're here.

I suppose that the kids' responses should not be all that surprising. Many youngsters now have their own smartphones and tablets/iPads. They are...increasingly...living in homes with no landline service whatsoever.

Imagine the disappointment when the kids found out that you could not text with a 500. blueevil

It seems to me that there was a cordless phone (Uniden? Panasonic?) that could receive some sort of news/text updates...but the specifics escape me.

I think I'll go dig out my (3) 500 phones and reminisce.
