Still making a presence now and then.

I used to work for Bell Atlantic before they changed their name to Verizon. I was a fiber optic cable splicer and then a systems tech. You'll be surprised at how many rotary phones are still in use today. The one in your picture was a top of the line phone in it's day.

Still just basic tip and ring :)

I did a remodel job for a ham radio guru once, he had a desktop rotary in his radio room with all his high tech electronics. When I asked why he kept the clunker around he said that when the power went out it was the only phone in the house that still worked, and that if an intruder made it to his radio room it was heavy enough to beat him to death with.
