Please note that all of these genuine vintage British GPO rotary telephones have been carefully taken apart, each individual component thoroughly cleaned, professionally restored and serviced using the correct GPO phone spare parts.
If necessary we have replaced any worn or damaged vintage telephone cords, plastic cases or handsets with UK made high quality copies of the originals.
As standard, we always replace the worn "carbon granule" telephone microphones with superior "crackle free" electronic microphones. This bring the speech quality up-to (if not better) than most modern land line telephones.
All of our vintage phones have been professionally converted by ourselves in our workshop ready for modern use and all the rotary telephone dials and mechanical bells have been carefully calibrated using our dedicated testing equipment.
We always use the original GPO telephone "Engineering Instructions" as a reference for these adjustments. This means that these antique phones will work correctly when plugged into modern BT style phone sockets and that they will not interfere with your Broadband speed or reliability.
