I picked this old phone last year for $1 and yesterday I picked the extension Bell for $1 :) This was the same kind of phone I grew up with as a child and teenager on a 3 party line, I would pickup the phone and the girl down the street would be on it for an hour or more after school, you could listen to their conversation but they could tell when someone picked up the phone, she would say GET OFF JERK, I would say YOU GET OFF B^#!! Man I hated that party line! LOL
