I have a 1950s-ish 554 wall telephone. We can't get good reception on it any more because we are unable to add our (modular) DSL filter to the phone. So it's time for an upgrade.
Can any one offer me any help on exactly how to remove the phone and convert it to a modular jack? I did find instructions on another web site on how to get the cover of the phone off, but that's where it ends. I have no idea of how to get the phone itself off, much less of what parts I need to convert it to what I assume is a hardwired phone to a modular jack. I also worry that somehow I may electrocute myself in the process - if that's even possible!
Before I contact the phone company to do the change - and probably spend way to much money in the process, I thought I would seek out the help of this forum! Thanks in advance for any advice or information you might have.
