Rotary phone

I just got a rotary phone and connected to the modem in the same connection for our land line.  I get a dial tone and have received a call but don't seem to be able make a call.  Can I use a rotary phone with my Comcast system?

Re: Rotary phone (SOLUTION)

This fixes your phone to dial out.  It's the easiest little box to hook up, plug and works right away.  Plug into the back of your modem where the phone line plugs in and works for the WHOLE house.  Took less than 3 seconds to hook up.  Costs $40 plus $14 shipping from Australia.  its AWESOME!

Re: Rotary phone (SOLUTION)

Thank you for this information.  Just noticed your email today.  I was aware of the gizmo you suggested.  But, although more expensive, did find, what for me, was a better solution.  I bought an XLink box which connects by bluetooth to my cell phone.  You plug rotary phone into the box and this allows you to not only receive calls, but also to receive calls.  Work very well.

 

Thanks again.
