Were those legal for sale in the state of Texas? Or were they marked "For Educational Use Only"?

First thing I thought when I read this was "In Soviet Russia, bases come to you".

My best friend's kooky-kool grandma had one of those. We used it to make prank calls, like Bart Simpson but more stylish.

I have two, both grey ones *sigh* One of my friends has a red one, lucky sod.

I just this very day saw a couple for sale in a small shop in Shibuya. (For any interested parties here, it was called "High Rollers"). I vaguely remember them from the first time around, I guess I was around 6 or 7.

I've got one of these. I think it's the Reviera. Not having a land line, I've got it sitting on a shelf waiting for a better life.

Yet again, we see a demonstration of the beauty of the Internet. No matter how small your collecting niche, you can share your passion with "millions" of people around world.

And the phones are way cool. When the only other choice in phones was black bakelite from Western Electric.
