Bold Old Phones has been in business since 2003 and has sold over 8,000 vintage rotary dial phones in that time to customers who admire the Mid-Century Modern look of the Model 500 desktop telephone. Our clients have been homeowners, museums, and Hollywood productions (including the AMC hit series Mad Men).

 

The main question that people ask us is... "Do rotary dial telephones still work?" The short answer is... "it depends." It is important that you ask your telephone provider that question before buying an antique phone.

 

The long answer from us is that rotary dial phones still work on traditional phone systems, require a DSL filter to work on DSL systems, and may or may not work on cablephone (VoiP) systems (although you can buy an adapter that will usually make it work there too). We have even been able in the past to sell specially modified phones that can Bluetooth over cellular networks. Our problem is that most people don't seem to know what type of system they have in their homes!

 

REPEAT:  Because shipping is not refundable, you must ASK YOUR TELEPHONE PROVIDER if a pulse-dial rotary telephone will work on their network. If not then you should try one of our replica phones which will work on all networks and give you the look you are wanting without the actual mechanical rotary dial.
