At first, the telephone was seen as a toy. People were (also) suspicious of telephones. (The 1800’s were) a time when few people had firsthand experience of electrical machines, even telegraphs. There were fears that other people could also listen in on the telephone conversations, or that the sounds from telephones could make you deaf or crazy. . Even telegraph companies encouraged false rumors that the telephone had bad effects because they were afraid of the competition. (Parker, 1995, p. 21)

Positive Aspect of the Phone

Ernestine the Operator

Before the telephone, information had to come to people from books and newspapers. People also had to rely on other people’s memories and travel patterns. Now, people can find out anything anytime just by picking up the phone and dialing a number. If people did not know a telephone number, they could dial an operator to help them connect the call. (G. Schoelles, 2001)

Originally there was one operator – now there are four to provide different services: local directory assistance, long distance directory assistance, 1-800 directory assistance, and dial-around directory assistance.

The very first telephone call was Bell calling his assistant to ask for help. In 1937, Britain put in a public emergency system where people could call for help by dialing 9-9-9. New Zealand’s 1-1-1 emergency system began in 1958. In America, AT T decided to use 9-1-1 for its emergency system in 1968 and the first emergency call was placed in Alabama that same year. 9-1-1 went nationwide in 1973. The Enhanced Emergency System now directs a call to a trained emergency technician who gets the proper help and tells people what to do.

Connecting with More People

Telephone companies promoted the telephone to businesses to increase efficiency, save time, and impress customers. A handbook for telephone salesmen from 1904 suggests reasons for residential customers to put in a telephone:

While residential telephone service may not directly save money for the household, yet, in an indirect way, it accomplishes the same thing by saving time, labor, and drudgery, and in making the whole household run more smoothly. It is always on duty, shops in all weather, corrects mistakes, and hastens deliveries. It save letter writing, orders the dinner, invites the guests, reserves the tickets, and calls the carriage. It makes appointments, changes the time, cancels them altogether and renews them. It calls the expressman, calls the cab, and instructs the office. It invites one’s friends, asks them to stay away, asks them to hurry and enables them to invite in return . (Fischer, 1992, p. 67)

Negative Aspects of the Telephone

and the television.

(Pierce, 1990, p. 235)

When telephones first became available to the public, many people were afraid that other people could listen in on their conversations. This actually did happen on party lines where more than one household shared a line with other households. Also some operators in small communities listened in on conversations because they were nosey or had a lot of time on their hands with nothing else to do. Telephones also allowed people to spread the news quicker, but the news was sometimes just gossip.

(Pierce, 1990, p. 224)

Users of cell phones today have been warned that the amount of microwaves being beamed through their heads may be damaging nerves. Telephone poles with hundreds of wires became common in large cities and were very ugly to look at. Governments and telephone companies often fought about burying cables under the street. Cities wanted the lines out of sight, but did not want the streets torn up. Telephone companies did not want to bury cables because it was easier to repair a cable if it were on a pole. Many old phones were buried in wells, but some of the metals in these telephones leaked into the water supply and poisoned the water.

Telephone answering machines

A businessman listening to an Automated Answering System .

Companies try to make the caller choose who they want to speak

with to save the receptionist or operator time.

Many times, the Automated System is too complicated or confusing.

I think the telephone has actually made life more complicated, also. It used to be that you could just pick up the phone and make a call and be connected. Now, you might get a telephone system that asks you to press numbers to get to an extension, which has more numbers to press to get to another department, which has more numbers to press to get to a person, who usually isn’t there and you have to leave a voice message. You can get lost in phone system hell. Phones also do more things. You need to know how to program your phone’s numbers into the address book in the phone; how to work the games if you want to play them; how to dial up the internet to get your voice mails; how to keep your calendar. All very convenient, but all very confusing. The phone has saved many hours of time and made it possible to do many things at the same time. This is called ‘multi-tasking.’ You can eat your lunch, make a telephone call, type an e-mail into the computer, and carry on a meeting all at the same time. This also means that you are also expected to do four times the work that you would have been able to do 40 years ago. Many people get burned out by how much they need to know and how fast they need to work just to keep up with the changes. This is especially true for people who were born before the invention of many of the telephone off-shoots, like facsimile machines, teletype machines, cell phones and computer systems. All of these save time, but make life harder because special skills need to be learned to use the equipment. . (The telephone) interrupts you when you want to be alone (like when you’re trying to sleep, take a shower, or relax). Salesmen and telemarketing companies use the phone to sell items that they would have had to sell door-to-door about 30 years ago, and they call at all times of the day and night. There are now laws that state when companies call sell over the phone, and that they have to take you off their list if you ask to be taken off. Many people I know put an answering machine on their telephone lines so they can listen to who is calling before they decide to pick up the telephone. Telephone companies also offer services for a telephone to display the telephone number of the incoming call (Caller ID). A person can just look at the telephone display, decide whether that ID is someone they know and want to talk to, then decide whether they want to answer the call. (D. Schoelles, 2001)

Even Alexander Graham Bell refused to have a telephone in his workroom so he would not be interrupted. (Eber, 1982, p. 80)

Mark Twain sent a Chrismas greeting in 1890, which many people have grown to agree with:

It is my heart-warmed and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us, the high, the low, the rich, the poor, the admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized, the savage (every man and brother of us all throughout the whole earth), may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss, except the inventor of the telephone.

. Most people saw telephoning as accelerating social life, which is another way of saying that telephoning broke isolation and augmented social contacts. A minority felt that telephones served this function too well. These people complained about too much gossip, about unwanted calls, or, as did some family patriarchs, about wives and children chatting too much. Most probably sensed that the telephone bell, besides disrupting their activities, could also bring bad news or bothersome requests. Yet only a few seemed to live in a heightened state of alertness, ears cocked for the telephone’s ring – no more, perhaps, than sat anxiously alert for a knock on the door. Some Americans not only disliked talking on the telephone but also found having it around disturbing, but they were apparently a small minority. Perhaps a few of the oldest felt anxious around the telephone, but most people . seemed to feel comfortable or even joyful around it. . Sociologist Sidney Aronson may have captured the feelings of most Americans when he suggested that having the telephone led, in net, to a ‘reduction of loneliness and anxiety, and increased feeling of psychological and even physical security’. (Fischer, 1992, p. 247)

This article explains how to wire a UK telephone extension. You are allowed to install extension wiring so long as the connection to the master socket is via a plug, or in the case of the master socket with a detachable lower half, via the connectors on that section. If you decide to connect directly to the master socket or install/replace a master socket you should be aware that you are in breach of your licence to use the phone service and your service provider may charge if they have to come to rectify a fault caused by your efforts (it is rare for them so to do unless you have been really ham fisted).

NEVER connect un-approved devices which take power from the mains to the telephone system. Even if you survive the mains on the cabling the poor wireman sitting in a muddy hole some way away trying to find a fault may not.

Telephone answering machines

This is what a typical master socket looks like. You must have one of these at the point at which BT wiring ends and yours begins.

Master sockets should not normally be used for extensions.

Telephone answering machines

Extension (Slave) Socket.

All extension sockets are like this. Note absence of ringing capacitor and surge arrrester.

The connectors shown are Insulation displacement types (IDC), Extension sockets (especially if bought in DIY sheds) often have screw terminals.

Telephone answering machines

Fixed Upper section

This is the BT supplied NTE5 master socket found in many installations, this particular one is made by Austin Taylor ( http://www.austin-taylor.co.uk/ ). Internally it is functionally similar to the master socket above but the components are protected by a plastic cover.

User removable lower section

Telephone answering machines

When the front screws are removed the complete lower portion of the socket including the IDC connectors for user wiring can be pulled out. They connect to the back plate by means of a fixed plug. The fixed plug is a standard BT plug and socket and allows all the internal wiring to be easily isolated for fault finding. A normal phone can be plugged directly into the socket remaining in the wall to test if the line is OK.

Telephone answering machines

Wiring inside a master socket

Telephone answering machines

Although pin 4 has no function in a domestic installation it is usually connected for the sake of neatness. The quality of wiring carried out by many older BT wiremen is often approaching art in its perfection.

The BT Drop Cable (The cable coming from the outside world)

Which way around they are connected usually doesn’t matter but as Rick Hughes kindly pointed out some modems (especially older USA sourced ones) and some answering machines are fussy about polarity, so it’s wise if possible to check the voltage on the line and connect -48V to the B leg (J2) and 0V to the A leg (J5).

Usual Cable Colour

Blue with White Bands

Speech and Ringing

Orange with White Bands

Not used but usually connected for neatness

An Important Note on Colour Codes

The colour code shown above is the one which would normally be used by BT. HOWEVER it isn’t always adhered to, especially if internal wiring in a new house has been installed by an electrician or it’s been done or modified by previous occupants.

You should never rely solely upon the colour code – always check both ends of the cable.

The Nice Thing About Standards Is That There Are So Many To Choose From

Just when you thought you understood it all, a brief word on plugs. The standard plugs encountered are the small RJ11 found on line cords at the telephone or modem end and the BT431A plug at the socket end. On RJ11 it is usual for the centre two pins to carry the signal, on BT431A it is the outer two.

By a masterpiece of technical superiority between them the BSI and BT managed to number the 431A plug in the British Standard as a mirror image of the socket, so when inserted pin 1 on the plug goes to pin 6 on the socket, pin 2 to pin 5 and so on.

Telephone answering machines

As the pin numbering isn’t shown on the plug you might ask why I’m confusing the issue. Simply, many packets of plugs in the DIY sheds come with a little diagram on the back which often follows the BS numbering. If you do the logical thing and put a plug on assuming the numbers are as on the socket the phone may not ring (and, as Adrian Graham who asked for this section to be included found out, without knowing the numbering is askew much pulling of hair, weeping and gnashing of teeth can occur as you try to find the fault).

Looking at the plug with the contacts uppermost the BT numbering is shown above with some common colour codes. That on the left is the older BT colour code, that in the centre is the one more commonly seen now, and that on the right is often found on modems, imported phones and Sky/On digital boxes with only two connectors.

A simple way of remembering the correct orientation for the BT plugs if you like mnemonics is Ring on the R ight. When you are holding the plug as shown in the diagram with the latch on the right the ring terminal (4 on the plug, 3 on the socket) is always just right of centre.

Note that with the two rightmost 2 wire examples in the diagram going from RJ11 to BT will involve the colour code going “wrong” at one end or the other unless a junction box or joint is used. If the lead has a BT adapter at one end the colour swap is usually made there, USR tended to swap it in the RJ11 plug, others do their own thing. NORMALLY the center two pins on the RJ11 are connected to the outer two (2 and 5) at the BT end. No matter what coloured wire is used the two wires always go to pins 2 and 5 at the BT end however it isn’t safe to assume they ALWAYS go to the center two at the RJ11 end.


Telephone Etiquette, telephone answering machines.#Telephone #answering #machines

Telephone Etiquette

Telephone answering machines

Telephone etiquette means being respectful to the person you are talking with, showing consideration for the other person’s limitations, allowing that person time to speak, communicating clearly and much, much more.

Your voice must create a pleasant visual impression over the telephone.

Good phone etiquette is important because we cannot see the facial expressions and body language of the other person and they cannot see us.

We must compensate by choosing our words carefully and using much more tone inflection to convey our message than if we were face to face. Telephone answering machines

Sadly, despite this, billions of dollars are spent annually on the various means of excluding the human factor from communication.

We regularly have to deal with impersonal recorded messages on voice mail that direct us to select a number from a menu or to leave a recorded message.

This is becoming standard business practice and a challenge to good phone manners when we are finally able to talk to a person.

We also encounter an ever increasing number of answering machines. These are a useful adjunct to the telephone and used judiciously will enable us to augment our telephone manners.

We get desperate to talk to a real live person and when we do find a human being we are dismayed to find the person lacks the basics of good telephone manners.

Children need to be taught to use the telephone to communicate respectfully and this is covered in Kids Telephone Etiquette.

This site provides some tried and tested Tips on Telephone Etiquette to help us brush up on our manners.

The principles apply equally to cell phone (mobile phone) communication. Mobile phones are just that.

They are mobile, and place you in environments where your phone and your conversation are not welcome and may even be considered offensive.

Lastly, a very convenient and useful feature of many phones is the speakerphone button.

This makes communication so much easier, but it too requires the exercise of good manners and judgement. Telephone answering machines

Best Answering Machines – Standalone and Phone Combo Units, telephone answering machines.#Telephone


The Best Answering Machines of 2017

Best Answering Machines

We spent over 15 hours researching and evaluating the best answering machines for all budgets and needs. There are standalone models as well as ones that are combined with a phone system. The best choice for most people is the Amplicom AB900. This standalone answering machine offers good storage capacity as well as rotary control over tone and playback speed. The analog interface is a smart choice for those who prefer simple technology. If you re trying to keep to a budget, the AT T 1740 is our value choice, as it combines an unbeatably low price with 60 minutes of storage time. And if you prefer your answering machine to double as a cordless phone set, the VTech CS6429-2 is a phone answering machine worth considering. It offers 14 minutes of storage and can expand to include up to five handsets.

The Amplicom AB900 is a standalone answering machine and a great option for anyone who wants just that, without fancy extras or a tagalong phone system. You can record up to 24 minutes of voicemails, and as a safeguard the system has built-in flash memory so calls won t be cut off if your power fails. One of its more unique features is the two rotary dials, which give you manual control over tone and playback speed. Aside from that, you have all the standard answering machine controls at your fingertips.

Even if you re on a budget, there s an answering machine for you. Costing under $15, the AT T 1740 has all the standard features at a fraction of the cost. The standalone answering machine gives you 60 minutes of voicemail storage more than any other units on our lineup. Its small design means it can easily fit into any room, and its simple interface is easy enough for anyone to use. You can delete or skip messages and set up your outgoing message, and the small LCD screen shows you how many new voicemail messages you have.

If you need an answering machine as well as a landline phone system, consider the VTech CS6429-2. You can add up to five individual handsets, and access your voicemails from each of them, as well as from the base. Though it doesn t have as much storage for voicemails just 14 minutes it offers all the standard voicemail playback and management features. The CS6429-2 lets you save up to 50 individual contact entries, and the phone system doubles as an in-house intercom.

Choosing the best answering machine comes down to your needs. Do you need a phone, too, or simply an answering machine? How about a machine that connects to multiple lines? Be sure to find the device with the right combination of features for your phone setup. The categories below will help you narrow down your choices.

The primary function of a telephone answering machine is its ability to capture messages and replay them. A common issue among older models was sound quality, but with modern advancements, this is no longer such a huge problem. The device should allow you to manage your messages, such as playing, stopping, deleting and skipping messages. In addition, the digital storage capacity is a critical element, because if you run out of space on the answering machine it quickly becomes useless.

Standalone vs. Phone Combos

While standalone answering machines still exist, they are becoming rare as manufacturers pair most cordless phones with an answering machine. The advantage of a standalone answering machine is that you can use it with any telephone. However, combo devices are convenient since the phone charging base is integrated with the answering machine. If you want to keep your current telephone, then a standalone machine is an excellent option, though they are becoming hard to find. You ll be able to find combo options for a price that s comparable to the standalone, and with more features.

Answering machines are like any other electronic device and are prone to failure after years of use or in the event of manufacturing defects. In either case, you need a warranty that will protect all of the device s components, including its recording storage. If the storage isn t covered, then you re forced to just replace the entire device as that is most likely the cheaper alternative.

Manufacturers generally provide one or more ways such as email, online contact form, phone or live chat to directly contact their customer support reps and learn more about how your phone answering machine works. Should you ever find yourself with a problem, you should also be able to look over the included user guide or access informational resources like a FAQs section or video tutorials on the manufacturer s website.

A phone answering machine can help you stay on top of calls without running up your phone bill or taking up storage space with voicemails. Whether you ve got a family with kids that need a way to contact friends or you use your phone to conduct business, you need a convenient way to save and check message whenever you re unable to answer.
