    I haven’t cleaned the phone very well on outside yet and definitely not interior. On door when opened what are those coil looking things? Is that leather on them? Absolutely any info, even if you think I might already know, I don’t so if you can share

      Hi Floridgaldeb! The coil looking things on the inside of its door are exactly that, they're what makes the little part that should be poking thru the door itself between the bells on the outside move back and forth, which makes them actually 'ring'.

      Oh, and they're more likely wrapped in some kind of old cloth tape than actual leather. If you examine that assembly a little closer, you'll probably notice that a part of it somewhere in its middle actually moves back and forth a little, which in turn makes the little 'ball between the bells' go back and forth to make them ring.
