Rotary dial phones emit a series of electrical pulses that are used by the equipment at the central telephone office to route the telephone call to the appropriate destination. Dialing a "9", for instance, on a rotary dial will emit nine electrical pulses spaced approximately 1/10 of a second apart. Modern touch to phones accomplish call routing by emitting distinct tones for each number pressed on the keypad, and it is the tones that are used for call routing by the telephone company.

Unfortunately, some "modern" phone equipment, particularly certain types of internet based systems, are unable able to recognize the pulses from a vintage rotary dial. Oldphoneworks recognized this shortcoming early on and we came up with our Rotatone EXT pulse to tone converter. This snazzy little unit will AUTOMATICALLY convert your traditional pulse dial to a modern DTMF tone. Simply dial your phone as you normally would and the pulse will be converted and recognized by your modern phone line including many VOIP devices, and Cable TV Phone Adapters. There are an almost infinite number of phone and network combinations. We can not guarantee that this converter will work with your specific setup.
