Title: Telephone

Abstract: A telephone is disclosed which comprises a memory (6) for storing first information, such as ID information, and a memory module receiver (10) for removably receiving a memory module for storing second information, such as ID information. The telephone also comprises a microprocessor (4) for detecting a change in contact between the memory module and the memory module receiver (10) since the previous use of the telephone. The microprocessor (4) uses the first information when the memory module and receiving means are not in contact and the second information when memory module and receiving means are in contact whilst there is no change detected. However, when a change is detected, the information to be used by the microprocessor (4) is selected, either automatically or manually.
