Is it any wiring diagram inside the phone?

The one you have is from Sweden, If you look at the dial the 0=1 pulse, 1=2 pulses etc.
For calling in UK you have to "rename" the finger-holes to 1,2,3... to 0

And use a 'Dialgizmo' adapter which just plugs into the line to save changing the dial. Setting it for Option B - see the manual - sorts the dial pulses out.

Yes the DialGizmo may be set to read different kinds of dials, it is great!
