Pushbuttons replace dials on telephone
Tests in regular service last winter at Carnegie and Greensburg, Pa., suburbs of Pittsburgh, have shown it’s easier and more than twice as fast to press buttons for a phone call than it is to twirl a dial. As each “touch-tone” button is pushed, it sounds a pleasing musical tone.
Bell is introducing the phone area by area, will nave it in general use within the next 10 years.
