Haven't seen one of these for awhile, have we?

Ha!!! I got a beige colored square one in the house, and it's still in use! Dial phones are long gone though.

However, there is a modular adaptor plugged into it for a slightly more modern phone. :lol:

The other relic,

Now this is high tech from my childhood, My apologies if I had posted this picture earlier. I tend to forget things now and then.

I have at least 2 of the 4-prongers in my house but they are not live...yet. I use a Magic Jack for home phone and will probably connect to one of these for other phone sets that I have...AFTER disconnecting everything going out from the demarc. Yep, got the RJ adapter, too!
