The internal wiring has been updated so that the original bells will ring when you have an incoming call. The hand cranked magneto is oh so charming. This phone is so authentic it doesn't contain a dial to make outgoing calls, therefore is is useful primarily as an extension for another phone. We do have a modern tone dialers available, however as an added option. As time went these wooden telephones were replaced by the bakelite wall telephones, which are real charmers in themselves.
