After last week's power outage, I decided it was finally time to get a phone that wasn't reliant on the "grid." My search led me to boldoldphones.com, where I found this classic.
Here's the test drive. It takes a bit longer to dial a number than it does on our cordless touchtone model, but on the positive side the ring is very distinct. There's no difference in voice quality. Most modern phones last 2 years or less in our home...this thing will outlast all of us.
