Vintage 1980's BT Push Button Telephone
For sale is a working example of an early BT telephone. The model number is a 10006AR and it was named "Venue 24E". This model of telephone was issued from around the mid 1980s and was part of BT's Inphone range. The total colour range was: White, Beige, and Black.
This one is beige coloured and dates from 1986. It was designed and manufactured in the UK. It measures approximately 22 cm x 18 cm x 6 cm.
The handset fits snugly along the back.
The front slopes down and has a neat, well spaced array of clearly labelled buttons on the right. There are further buttons which give a choice of Last Number Redial & Secrecy, memory store, notepad, time, alarm and other features.
Around the back, there is an adjuster for adjusting the volume of the electronic ring tone. This will allow you to get the ring tone at just the right volume.
Underneath, there is a battery compartment. It requires 4 x AA batteries to access the additional features, if required. 

It comes complete with a good long length of matching, BT line cord and BT plug. This early phone uses tone dialling technology i.e. the same as modern telephones. This means you have the style of a vintage telephone with modern features. It can be used with any BT line and most cable networks.

To help you get the best from your telephone, it comes complete with a 16 page user's guide.


The handset cord is complete and free from tangles. Both the earpiece and mouthpiece have been sanitised. The speech quality is good, loud and clear. 

The numbered buttons all work correctly. 

The LCDs are dark and clear.

The battery compartment is in good order and the flap is present. 
The casing does have some markings consistent with a used, vintage item; however, it has been cleaned and polished. The telephone is in an overall good condition.

In summary, this is a fairly rare, early, 1980's, BT phone from the days when things were still made in England.
