And there's also a bigger WHITE TELEPHONE at U+260F, although not in  
ZapfDingbats. The BLACK TELEPHONE at U+260E is contained in a few  
fonts in Mac OS X, particularly for CJK use, the others are a bit rare.

One thing needs to be critiqued: the phones are all from a museum!  
Who, or where in the world are phones in use where you have to rotate  
a dial?! There is one almost modern design: Alphabetum (http:// 
guindo.pntic.mec.es/~jmag0042/alphabet.html). It has twelve push  
buttons ...
