    Rotary phone
    I just moved into a new home, however my old rotary wall phone will not connect to the plate on the wall. The tabs are way too close on the plate. Does anyone know if they still make one that will fit this kind of phone?

    If you live in the States, it may be better to change the cord to match most common phone jacks.
    Are you trying to find the plate with 4 holes that are not quite square? Maybe 3/4" apart.

    Are you talking about the metal mounting studs on the wall plate, which are supposed to hook into key holes on the back of the phone to support it on the wall? There really is no standard for these - different manufacturers have different attachment techniques. I suggest that you take your phone to a place like Radio Shack or Fry's and see if they have a mounting plate that would work for you. See:
