If this were meant for European use, the 4 prong plug will be different
from the North American 4 prong plug.
Radio Shark used to have adapters from N/A 4 to modular, but if it is
the European one, you are SOL for an adapter.
The best thing to do is buy a cable, modular on one end, and spade lug
at the other. Dollar stores, electronic stores, phone stores, flea
If you open the phone, you should find the wires are colour coded the
same as the spade lugs are on the cable. If it ISN'T, then take the
phone to a phone service place. If the same, then ONE by ONE,
disconnect the original wires and connect the spade connectors.
Note the red/green wires are for Line 1, black/yellow for line 2. If
you only have one line, then only red/green need be connected.
The colours should be
