I’ve inherited my great-grandparents’ very old rotary phone. They lived in Miami (305 area code).
“Bell System Property. Not For Sale”
Thinking of an interesting project for it.

You ever wonder how a rotary phone dials the number you choose? There are contacts behind the dial that get nudged open/closed as the dial rotates. However many pulses = the number you just dialed.

I couldn’t help but copy @Foone’s rotary phone numpad keyboard

Following in @Foone’s footsteps, I’ve upgraded to a T9 keyboard.

Well, @Foone I was reminded that T9 is technically predictive text input so I had to rectify the situation...
