This AT&T video from the 50s shows how to dial a phone.
Hey's, it's tough to do!
So let's practice:
- Be sure of the right number
- Wait for the dial tone
- Refer to the number while dialing
- Turn the dial until the finger hits the finger stop
- Avoid confusing the letter "O" with the number "0"
- The difference between ringing and busy signals
