I use an old style phone on my desk – it looks and works great, but for two little problems:
1. The lack of a hash key means you can’t use automated switchboards.
2. If someone sends a voice text to you, there’s no way of retrieving it.
So how about an old style phone with new phone functionality? Here’s the Geemarc Mayfair – a phone that looks just like the one your parents used to have. But with one big difference. It looks like it features a dial, but look closely and you’ll notice if features push buttons, making it as useful as any modern phone. There’s also pulse/tone dialling, last number redial and an adjustable ringer pitch and volume.
Available in numerous high street electrical stores for around £20.
