A cordless ISDN phone with a Deutsche Telekom special functions key that I never used, even when the Telekom was responsible for more than just the bare wire – but guess which key a neighbor who once locked herself out of her apartment and asked me if she could call her daughter who had a key pressed to make the connection after dialing…?
