    Seen these since the 80's so bought one from a GIRL in NY a few weeks ago. Arrived perfect and is my new conversation piece. $20 plus shipping so about $25 total.

    I too bought a TR phone...new in box off ebay for a whopping $13. Most people simply shake their heads when they see me use it. I also have an F40 phone....have yet to see another one....

    You realize of course that a future generation will have no idea what that thing is. i.e., you mean they used to make a communication device that didn't attach to your person?? I dropped the landline last year and am totally cellular/wireless now. Look for these in your antiques store of tomorrow. See no reason why they shouldn't hold their value or even increase in value though. I wonder what my parents rotary dial phone would be worth now, if anything...
