Back in the late 80s I was stationed in Hawaii, I was a friends house & his wife was doing something peculiar with the phone. It was a speaker phone with redial button (new to me at the time), she was sitting on the couch she'd hit the redial button with her toe, when she got the busy signal she'd hang up and hit the redial button again, all with the same toe. This went on until she got a ring, then was put on hold. She'd leave it on the speaker until a human got around to taking the call.
I asked what was happening, she was trying to make a doctors appointment for one of her kids! What a neat idea! We bought a phone like that because we had to make those same appointments..

Good luck!
