    Default Older Style Rotary Phone...anyone have one?

    Does anyone out there have an older style rotary phone like the one pictured here that they might be willing to part with? I'm looking to replace a part on the one I have.

    peace,
    Sophie

    The jack that the phone line plugs into at the back of the phone. The lip edge that goes around the jack to keep it from slipping inside the phone case has broken. In addition to that, the jack itself has cracked in half. I tried gluing it back together, but it just won't hold. I've checked EBAY a few times, but am not willing to pay so much for them. I should probably keep checking every so often. I may get lucky.

    Sounds like it's just the female RJ 11/12 modular jack that may need replacing.

    The pictures are just examples and not the exact ones that would fit.

    ***! New and never used. Looks great, but I can't justify spending the $70 when the phone I have works just fine....except for the jack slipping inside the case.

    I found what I needed from a Canadian company. This is it....

    Edit: On second thought, that may not be right. That is for the handset. I need the back jack. I did email them a question about it, so we'll see.

    Yes, I saw it after I posted and after I had edited my post. Didn't want to edit again!
