  This is a must if you have digital telephone service. Now you can still use your rotary phone. This will convert the pulse dialing from your cool old rotary phone to DTMF tones compatible with modern VOIP equipment.

This Unit is the Best on the Market. It works with almost all providers. Others do not 

The cheaper units you see do not work with all polarities. Homes many times have reverse polarities.  This unit  works with all polarities 

  You can even dial* and # with it. 
 Supports all rotary phones.
 Needs no batteries.
 Allows you to dial *  and # 
 Six speed dial locations plus last number redial.
 Easy setup, just plug it in and use. 

Now you can still use your wonderful rotary dial telephone. Just plug it in and your rotary telephone works like it did before. Dialing on a quality  rotary phone is great. The tactile heaviness of the dial, the finger stop. The smooth whirr of the gears, all provide you with the opportunity to slow down and think how things were earlier when life was somewhat better.

Its nice to forget about all those modern things  for a while.

There is nothing like an old phone when ringing fills the room as it would half a century ago. Works with low voltage VOIP like Magic jack and AT &T U-verse, Comcast and others

There are several kinds out there. This one is the best and its hassle free.

This little device is fantastic. Truly plug-and-play. It's a joy to be able to use my old rotary dial phone again. Device worked perfectly right out of the box. Very pleased.

Our company switched to VOIP for our phone system. The problem I had was we had one piece of equipment that could only use pulse dialing. It would take quite a bit of money to replace this unit, not to mention the labor to install it. We ordered the converter and it just work without a problem.

This is an amazing little box. All the features are awesome. The box works perfectly with my 202 desk phone. Redial, memory, # and * sign dialing work perfectly from the phone.

I love this pulse to tone converter. I have had my parents 40 year old rotary phone on my desk for a few years. I always wished I could at least get a dial tone on it. With this device I can now use this phone again as it was meant to be used. Thanks!

Got this little gizmo to use on a rotary phone until we put our touch tone phone up. Works like a champ. Many Thanks!

What an amazing product. I have 3 Western Electric antique telephones which I love. With the dialgizmo I now have the ability to make calls as well as receive them. Friends and family think they are incredible. Reminder of days gone by. The grandkids have never been exposed to this technology. They think the dial sound and bell ringers are awesome, and grandpa is very cool. LOL Thank you for making it possible, and bringing back some delightful memories.

I purchased two of these, one for our Western Electric 202 and the other for our Western Electric 500. We have AT&T fiber optic service to the house. Prior to that, we had Spectrum and both phones functioned fully--rang, received calls, and dialed out. With the AT&T fiber optic, they still rang and received calls but no dial-out. These Dialgizmos fixed that issue. Thank you!

Works great

A must have if you have a vintage phone that you like to use. I purchased my phone from this shop as well and I’m happy with not only my purchase but the customer service.

The Dialgizmo really works!

Written by Hank on 9th Jan 2021

Working with an Ooma Telo. I tested it while plugged directly to a rotary phone and it worked exactly as described. I thought I might have to pause the dial at the finger stop for a moment, but I can dial as quickly as I want and the tones keep up with my fast-fingered dialing pace. Then, I connected it between my Ooma Telo and the house wiring and it didn't work. Oh well I thought I guess it just isn't designed to work that way. Then I thought about it and realized there is nothing different about having it connected there vs. directly to a phone, and surmised I must have plugged it in backwards. Sure enough I did. Of course the "line" is the Ooma Telo. As Forrest Gump said I am not a smart man. The other DTMF landline phones are unaffected by its use and work as they always have. I have not yet figured out how to store speed dial numbers but... Forrest Gump.

Works great!

Arrived quickly during the Christmas rush. Easy to plug in. Husband was happy to be able to have his old phone work again. The real fun began when I offered up money to the first teenager in the house that could figure out how to call me from it. #1 rule: cell phones down, no Google allowed! Quite entertaining.

Works on my OOMA Telo for the whole house

Written by ka1axy on 13th Oct 2020

I have the Dialgizmo connected between my OOMA Telo and the house wiring, so I can plug a dial phone in anywhere and have it work. I have a protection module attached between the Dialgizmo and the house wiring to block any surges from near-miss lightning. So far, I have dialled with an Ericofon, a WE 565, a WE 702 Princess and a WE dial lineman's handset with no problems whatsoever. I am very happy with my Dialgizmo. The only weirdness seems to be that on remote party hangup, the OOMA box does something to the line which causes the Dialgizmo to emit a single tone. Haven't investigated this, but it doesn't cause any problems.

Works with OOMA

Written by ka1axy on 12th Oct 2020

Got one of these and it works fine with my OOMA box. I have it plugged into the box between the box and my house wiring, with a protector on the house wiring side to handle induced spikes from lightning. It works great with all my dial phones. Well worth the cost.

This worked with AT&T U verse

Written by Jason Hochman on 15th Jun 2020

I was able to use this to dial with my old Western Electric 500 from the 1950s and my old Princess probably from the 1960s. No problem to install--just plug the cable from the phone into the device, and plug the device into the jack. The unit is very small and doesn't get in the way at all. No batteries or power cord required. Just make sure that you have an AT&T jack that is actually set up for a phone! These days everyone uses a cell phone so the household phone jacks might not be connected, as I found out. when using the device to dial, timing is important. What I mean is that when you dial a digit, you need to wait a second--the Dialgizmo converts the dial tones to a beep, like a touch tone. So you have to wait a moment for the beep, but if you are too slow, the phone gives you the message "Your call cannot be completed as dialed." No sleeping while dialing! Your old phone may not ring as loudly as you recall. This has nothing to do with the device; it is because the new VOIP and digital phone systems are lower voltage than the old phone lines. My only complaint is that this unit seems a bit high priced for what it is. It might not be that sturdy over time. But, it does come all the way from Australia. It is the only one I know for sure works with AT&T U verse.

True Plug and Play

Written by Gregory Larson on 3rd Jun 2020

Unlike others I looked at, there was no ambiguity as to it being able to work and no worries trying to figure out how to configure or set it up. Worked out of the box as advertised. Truely plug and play. I used it on an old 1960's payphone Connected to Comcast's VoIP service.

Ordering was easy and it arrived so fast. I plugged my VoIP Router into one phone plug in my house and plugged the converter with my rotary phone into another phone plug and it worked perfectly! I’m so glad to have my phone working again.

I used my rotary on a direct land mine for years and moved overseas and it was in storage. Upon return, I’m now on VoIP and had now idea how to get my phone to work until I found this via an internet search. I took a gamble and ordered it and two days later it was at my house and working as soon as I plugged it in. So happy!

So awesome to be able to dial out on my rotary phone now.

Arrived quickly & works as advertised!

Written by Victor, VA on 31st Oct 2019

It should be noted that I only have one rotary phone, so this is the first converter I've had to buy. However, installation was a breeze, and works as advertised with my Verizon FIOS phone service. Now I can use my Western Electric 302 to place calls! Having grown up with rotary phones, it's definitely an odd feeling to make a call with a rotary phone again. The audio quality with this particular phone is very good, and much better in fact than when using a smartphone, even when the person on the other end is using a cell phone. Something perversely satisfying about using an 82-year old phone. Getting my 14-year old son to successfully place a call with it was a hoot!

A MUST for old phones in today's environment

Written by James W. Harshbarger on 15th Oct 2019

I've now bought three Dial Gizmos and am so thankful for their existence. You can now enjoy all your rotary dial phones over VoiP circuits, which you otherwise would not be able to do. Plus, they have added features other similar devices do not. So easy to install and use as well. An EXCELLENT product!

I recently installed this converter on my Western-Electric 233G Pay Phone with Verizon Fios ( not the Fios VOIP) , and it worked perfectly. It’s small enough to be installed inside the pay phone right above coin box housing. I’m thrilled, got the use of my phone back ! Thank you

Awesome! Best rotary-tone converter I've seen

Written by Simon Plaistowe on 15th Jan 2019

I'm using this on a NZPO Type 100 phone and it works perfectly. The phone is plugged directly into the phone port on our ONT (fibre box). This unit is actually a DialGizmo (made in Australia, although I was unable to source one directly from them). Much easier than the Rotatone unit, which I would have had to install inside the phone. Has switchable options to match various dialling sequences, including one which works here in New Zealand.

Fantastic rotary dial converter!

Written by Jim Harshbarger on 30th Nov 2016

I just bought two of the Dialgizmo rotary dial converters and am thrilled with their performance. In addition to converting pulses to tones, they have other convenient features: last number redial, speed dial, and # and * capability. I have used another product which had an internal battery which ultimately failed after some months of use. This product has no battery so it's literally "plug and play." So glad to find this product.

Pulse to Touch Tone

Written by undefined on 13th May 2014

Exactly one week after I installed my restored rotary wall phone, my local telco did away with pulse dialing. This converter works as advertized and calls can again be made with a rotary telephone. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that when dialing, you have to wait until you hear the tone (which I would rather not hear) before you dial your next number. To me this does take away some of the nostalgia of a rotary dial.

Dialgizmo--Good for one extension

Written by IAIN ADAIR on 15th Aug 2013

Overall, I am pleased with Dialgizmo. It is easier to install and use than a Rototone device which installs inside the telephone's case. Dialgizmo certainly works on VoIP telephone service (like AT&T U-verse) as advertised, whereas Rototone cannot be used with VoIP service. Some Dialgizmo owners mention that Dialgizmo can be installed at the VoIP modem to serve all the extension phones connected to the modem. I got my Dialgizmo to work that way, but once a day at least, it caused my phone line to give off a 'busy' or 'engaged' signal. I was able to correct this by unplugging the Dialgizmo from the modem output port and immediately plugging it back in. That got a little tiresome, so I am just using it on one telephone instrument. Dialgizmo was not advertised for use on more than one telephone at a time, so it does actually function properly as advertised. Overall, I am pleased with the Dialgizmo. I would recommend it to others wanting to use a dial telephone on a VoIP system--with one caveat--use it on one phone at a time.
