Nowadays it can be so complicated to deal with a regular telephone line in the home as well as manage calls coming into our mobile device!
Even my kids love the idea of this! My first thought had been that they would think it’s too ‘old fashioned’ but in fact that’s what they like about it.
This classic phone lets you hook up your own existing landline so you can also use it as a normal phone
For those who appreciate the classic telephone styles of yesterday amidst the technological advancements of today, this vintage cell phone charger effectively marries the two.
Although the phone appears to be an antique rotary dial, it actually works with a land line as well as your mobile smartphone. It’s compatible with iPhones, Androids and Blackberries with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone comes with the actual 3.5mm cable that connects to the jack.
How it Works
When someone calls your landline, there’s a red light that will blink, and of course you just pick the handset up and start your conversation. If the blue light is blinking (referencing the switchover to your smartphone) just press the ‘switch’ button to take the call on the handset.
However, if someone calls your cell you have the option of taking the call on the retro handset; the blue light will flash to tell you that you have a call on your mobile, at that point just press the ‘switch’ button to speak on the vintage handset.
