Its been tested to receive calls, call out, but is intermittent with ringing. I am selling it as a "no-ring" telephone, just to cover my bases :)
I updated the cord as well to a modular plug so it will be ready to go as soon as you get it. I added dial card (copied, not original) to give it an extra crisp look. Dial cards are interchangeable if you ever want to put something different in there!
This phone is a very deep beautiful mustard yellow. The body is in really good shape too. There are some scratches from normal vintage wear, as well as on the clear plastic dial. If there is anything you want to see up close, just email me and Ill be happy to send you whatever pics you like.
NOTE: IF YOU HAVE VOIP OR DIGITAL TELEPHONE SERVICE, FIRST CHECK WITH YOUR PROVIDER TO SEE IF A TOUCH TONE PHONE WILL WORK ON YOUR LINE.
