I am looking for a PSTN-to-D-AMPS converter: a device similar to
Nokia 22, but working in D-AMPS rather than GSM. I need something
that is in production and can be purchased. Thanks!

Thanks for the opportunity to answer this question.

The Cellsocket claims to support the Nokia 5165, which is a
D-AMPS/AMPS phone.

I also found this story which claims that Memorex had such devices,
but I couldn't find them on their website.

Andrew Wireless used to carry a product by Xentris.  Xentris's site is
available but has no information, but Andrew is still in business and
might very well be able to help you:

The product -

Andrew Wireless -

Best of luck.  The CellSocket device is mentioned in a number of news
stories and as an OEM product through several small wireless companies
doing AMPS, so I think you'll find it's available and will be able to
meet your requirements.

Thank you for the info, but that is not exactly what I am
looking for. As I indicated, I need a device similar to the
Nokia 22, that is capable of beiing connected to an office
PBX rather than a a regular phone. Basically it would have
to have an RJ11 FXO connector to connect a PBX (or any other
telephony device, like maybe an analog VoIP GW).

If I am missing something here, please clarify.

I think these devices might support an FXO port:
