I do have a rotary dial phone. But it is not in working condition. It is a old candlestick phone. I've had it since I was a kid. I would love for it to work.

I have many film cameras. I still have a rotary phone although I don't use it anymore.

I have two rotary phones, a very old black one from probably the early 50's and a newer beige one from the 80's. Both were my grandparents. As far as I know they both still work, but I don't have a landline so they're just decorations.

My rotary phone left our home about 20 years ago! I still have my 35mm camera which I love but my daughter got us a digital camera for Christmas a few years ago so I hung up my Minolta!

I saw a rotary phone at the flea market close to where I live and I asked my 14 year old niece what it was. She was so clueless. I couldn't stop laughing. I had to buy it. I have a few film camera's but tucked away in my storage.

The last rotary phone we had was 30 years ago. As I have been sitting here writing my cordless phone has rung 5 times with charities pestering me to donate. I just don't answer it. We never seem to have that problem of constant begging for money from organizations 30-50 years ago.

My grandfather used to have a candlestick phone that used to be on his TV tray and every time someone used to call my grandfather on the phone it would be so funny to see him yell into the mouthpiece and every time my uncle would try to call someone on the candlestick phone when my uncle would dial the phone it would always make me giggle because the phone dialer made a silly sound. Then my great grandmother had a rotary phone that she disliked because when it would ring it would ring loud and she kept it in her bedroom but once Mom got her another rotary phone my great grandmother liked it a lot. My great aunt also had a rotary phone and she had it forever till it broke. My grandmother was also one of the first to have a slimline phone and it was blue colored and she liked it so much and she kept it in her kitchen
Do you remember when slimline telephones became popular?

I still use and like disposable cameras. They're easy to use and way easier to get the film developed than having to do digital.

My mother used to have a old Minolta camera that was silver colored and she had it since I was born and it was really cool because when you took a photo it actually made a real camera noise and I think she still has it in our garage. We actually stopped using cameras when we got a camcorder and we used it to do various home movies of me and all of our family vacations together. And we still have the camcorder but we don't use it as much anymore

No rotary phone. I have a film camera, but I haven't used it in years. I miss the excitement and surprise of getting your photos back from the drugstore. You know exactly what you're getting with a digital camera, which is nice, but not as fun.

I also love using a film camera because there's always that one mystery picture that nobody remembers taking. It's always fun to try and remember when it was accidentally snapped.

Still have land lines, and have a rotary candle stick phone hooked up in the basement (it's from the 80's)

Also have film cameras around. But don't use them as digital cameras/phones are far more convenient. No worries about developing film. It's there and ready to go, can share the pic within seconds rather than wait hours or days for film.
