The Antique Known as the Corded Phone

By  |  Monday, December 5, 2011 at 12:08 pm

J.J. Sedelmaier provides a neat visual retrospective of a device that’s still out there, but which feels like a relic: the non-cordless phone. (I still have one at home, but only because I occasionally do guest spots on radio shows from my house–and the producers always ask if I can do them from a wired landline.)

    I keep telling myself I should buy a cheap corded phone to have on hand for use during power outages (when the base station cannot transmit to our cordless handsets). That wouldn't be a problem except that cell coverage is horrible where our house is located. Fortunately power outages here (Phoenix) are very uncommon.

    I have one both for doing radio shows and because they work if your power goes out.

    @Arch, at the beginning of every hurricane season, I remind my friends here in Florida to add a cheap "corded" phone to their hurricane supplies, if they haven't already.
