Unfortunately everyone wants one button access to features and such and
displays with caller ID, length of call, etc. so you're seeing less and
less of the 2500-style phones on office desks these days.

One of the things I appreciated about the Executone IDS systems I used
to maintain is that the "wave" desk phones had 2500-style keypads on
them instead of the keypads found on the new business system phones
(buttons wrong size, a 'mushy' feel to them, etc.). Nothing beats
those old tried and true keypads.
