No, what's amazing is modems still do pulse dialing
Not only did we have pulse dial phones, I grew up in a rural area on a on a street with a party-line as all 3 houses had the same phone line and you could listen in to each other's calls.
When I was real little I still remember mom using a wash tub, manual clothes ringer to get the water out, and a clothes line. Mom doesn't like to be reminded of such stuff. We made ice in metal ice cube trays, not plastic, not automatic, and it always hurt your fingers when they got stuck to those metal trays.
Every computer I ever used back in the day is now a museum piece.
