1 Attachment(s) ex GPO Red & White Tent Available by Major_Clanger

It was given to me years ago by an old pal who was a BT engineer. I had...

Wireless phone extentions? by Bascule
Hi, I've just joint the forum with the sole purpose of picking some brains! I have had a lovely old black Bakelite phone knocking around the house for years.

It seems a softer ring than any other old phone I've heard - like the...

Trading Mobile Contracts by f1982

The person buying it gets a good deal, because the sale price would be lower than the actual contract price. It's a cheaper way of getting out of a contract than buying yourself out (which is...
