Sorry it has been a while, life has been busy!
A friend of mine from Canada sent me this old relic of the mid 1990s, a Northern Telecom M9516 telephone complete with a built in answering machine, auto attendant and paging feature.
Unfortunately, even though Nortel marketed their plastic of not yellowing back in the 1990s, this phone has yellowed immensely. I plugged the phone in and it works fairly well for being a 23 year old phone dated 1995, wow, that’s the year I graduated high school.
My favorite lady of voice, Meridian Mary or aka Joan Kenley’s voice adorns the phones voice prompts.
