Phone of the Day: Vodavi Starplus STS Digital 3515-71 Telephone at SEE Optical in Lincoln Park Chicago
I got a great new pair of glasses at a trendy optical shop in Lincoln Park. I was surprised they didn’t have an Avaya, Nortel, or modern white Cisco telephone, but instead they had this less trendy Vodavi telephone at each desk.

Phone of the Day: Nortel T7208 Digital Telephone at TJ Maxx in Countryside, IL

Phone of the Day: Nortel T7208 Digital Telephone at TJ Maxx in Countryside, IL
This large TJ Maxx in the Chicago suburbs is probably my favorite one. They get the best merchandise and have great friendly employees. They also use their Nortel phone system quite well. Managers wear headsets and do some communicating that way, but they also make great use of the original 1995 paging system for customer ...

Phone of the Day: A Snom D715 Gigabit IP Phone at AceBounce Bar in Chicago
This new ping pong themed bar sports some fancy SNOM IP telephones. These sets are SIP based. I like most things about this phone except for the wimpy auto dial buttons to the right of the dial pad.

Phone of the Day: Classic Candlestick Telephone at a Hotel in Buffalo, NY
When my wife was on one of her business trips a few weeks ago she took a picture of this cool candlestick Phone circa 1930s. This is a classic telephone with a beautiful shape. It’s one I don’t have, but if I did, I am sure I would have it working on an analog port ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M3904 Digital Telephone at a Marketing Office in Buffalo, NY
This clean and well kept Nortel M3904 digital telephone was found at a marketing office in Buffalo. They produce beers such as Labatt Blue. The M3904 is one of the few digital non IP phones still manufactured today. In the past you could only use it on a Meridian 1 or CS1000 platform, but today ...

Phone of the Day: ROLMphone 240 Digital Telephone at Bloomingdales Home Store Chicago, IL

Phone of the Day: ROLMphone 240 Digital Telephone at Bloomingdales Home Store Chicago, IL
Introduced in 1983, these original digital Rolmphones are still chugging away at this Bloomingdales in Chicago. It’s hard to believe that a 34 year old telephone design still looks fairly modern today. During the late 1980s these ROLMphones were considered one of the most advanced and luxurious executive phones (along with the ATT 7400 series) ...
