Ask A Question


I can answer questions regarding land line phone systems, wiring methods, troubleshooting, as well as restoration of antique phones. (1900's to 1980's) I am still learning about newer technologies like VOIP and other digital modes, but may still be able to help with these topics from time to time.

Experience in the area

I have collected antique telephones since I was a teen, and been involved in wiring of home phone lines, as well as troubleshooting problems with them since around the same time.


I have studied basic electrical fundamentals through classes in a technical college, as well as extensive reading on the subject in my own time. I have also helped Electricians and telecom installers on and off for some time.

I wouldn't think so, my phone is on usually 24/7 except when I need to restart it for some reason. Just keep an eye on the battery level so it doesn't die on you. I would recommend taking it to a cell

Eddie,    I have never seen such a phone,which doesn't mean there isn't one, but I don't believe there is. For one reason, it would shut off in the middle of a call if the call went over the set time,
