There is a very good reason why they are discontinued. On the East coast, cellular carriers wont activate them anymore (Bell Atlantic, Comcast). The phones are antiquated and don't support authentication (prevents cloning).

The allure of an intgrated phone is great, but they are expensive and not supported by cellualar carriers. Not to mention, most systems are turning digital and getting a way from anolog.
