Well, at least there is some kind of cordless phone symbol in
Microsofts Webdings (part of Word for Mac) at U+F0C8, and other more
modern designs in commercial fonts, but I think one should go for
more conventional symbols, which the reader is used to and recognizes
immediately (I use the "telephone location symbol").
Anyway, thanks for your tips (BTW, I only see 9 push buttons in the
Alphabetum symbol - not quite enough, I think ;^) ).
