Question from my daughter..... who, having acquired a *sit up and beg*
American push button telephone wonders why it does not work when plugged
into her UK domestic telephone socket.
Vague fatherly explanations such as different voltage/pins used/etc.
have not satisfied:-)
I don't know the actual origin of the unit: nicked from some hotel or
purchased for normal use over there but I am sure someone in here will
be able to explain the problem.
Well I suppose if you consider that Tel Aviv has a street named after
General Allenby and New Zealand is like going back in time 13 hours and
30 years that's kind of true. Sheiks Khalifa and Mohanmmed are at
least anglophiles. OK, I'll buy that.
Would you care to speculate whether or not phones from countries that use UK
plugs are likely to have a similar electrical interface too?
I would like to use something that works on the UK system in Cyprus and
don't want to have a problem when I get there.
I don't take phones around any longer (at least not fixed line ones),
but I have never run into electrical interface problems.
I used to carry a set of phone adaptors and a screwdriver so that come
what may, I could get a connection unless the phone system was digital
of some kind.
