Listed below are links to weblogs that reference I miss rotary phones:
So do I. I miss the sound of dialing. Also, before touch tone phones, you got an actual person on the line right away instead of after following a million prompts when calling places of business.

Or even when they existed, the recording would say, "Or, if you are dialing from a rotary phone, please stay on the line and an operator will be with you in a moment." So even if you had a touch tone phone and you got a recording, you could just remain silent and get a real person without "menu fatigue." My mother had a gorgeous rotary phone, the really elegant kind with a cameo on it, ivory with gold and silver accents. I loved dialing it. I would call for the recording that gave the time and temperature just to watch the dial go all the way around with the 9.
