Not so, there is a company in Florida that is
manufacturing the old standard 2500 profile
touch tone phones. The electronic components
are probably sourced from around the world but
the rest of it is American. The phones are in
great demand for hotel/motel and institutional
use. I think there is another manufacturer in
Mississippi that also makes 2500 series phones.
The phones are very well made and no, they're
not heavy enough to kill someone if you hit
them over the head with one but they're quite
stout and durable. The old AT&T and ITT phones
were heavy because of the mechanical pushbutton
switch matrix and large network components that
were potted in a metal canister. The ringer was
also a heavy cast assembly and all that stuff
was mounted to a relatively thick sheet metal
chassis. Many of the new phones can be had with
an actual mechanical ringer with a real metal
bell. Integrated circuits have made the touch
tone keypad and network so much smaller and
lighter though. Ain't progress wonderful?
