It wasn't as bad as it sounds - if it weren't for mobile phones coming up fast at the time it could have been a great success.

If I remember correctly, you got what was essentially a cordless phone and base station - you piad wired rates when at home, and mobile rates when elsewhere.
The good was that anyone walking past your house could use your base station t omake 'elsewhere' calls (on thier bill, of course).

You presumably got a sign in the pack to stick in your window, because there are still some left around in random places. (one in a flat down the road from me).

Our business is run on trust. We trust you will pay in advance.
