Are You Still Adding to Your Box of Junk Handsets?

Are You Still Adding to Your Box of Junk Handsets?
Touch Strip
I had just sold 3 Modkey phones for an add-on. I knew we had 30 new ones in
stock. I opened the boxes to make sure everything was there... and there
were NO HANDSETS in ANY of the 30 brand new phones! I went Berzerk! I
found them scratched up and broken under seats, rolling around in trunks,
laying behind the shelves in vans & piled in cardboard boxes. GREAT... The
only problem with these handsets was a bad $4 transmitter OR receiver (hardly
ever both), or a bad $2 modular jack, and we'd junked all these handsets!
NOW we fix 'em right there at the customer's desk!
