Retro Phone Handsets

Updated on May 12, 2015

Old Phone Handsets for Your Cell Phone

Long before cell phones became an attachment to everyone's and their mother's ear, there was the antique telephone handset created back in the 20s that provided a classic mouth-to-ear telephone conversation. These vintage telephones were big, chunky and completely unportable. The retro phone handset kept you doing only one thing, listening to the person you were talking to on the phone, (not driving, shopping, working on the computer, or anything else). The retro telephone of years ago created the closest thing to intimacy of a face-to-face conversation that technology would allow back then. Now, it seems as though these vintage telephones are making their way back into our lives through the use of modern technology. How can YOU enjoy a blast from the past using an old phone handset? The best way is to hook up a retro phone handset to your cellphone or computer. After all these years, the retro phone handset including the Native Union retro handset and Bluetooth retro handset are among the hottest selling cell phone accessories on the market this year. Read on to learn why, YOU, might even want to consider going old school with your cell phone.

But how could you converse on one of these old phone handsets these days? Ironically, the best way is to hook up a retro phone handset to your cellphone or computer.

This retro phone handset is designed as a haute high-tech take on the traditional handheld telephone. Compatible with iPhone and iPad, computers and most cell phones.

Bluetooth Retro Handset

Retro Bluetooth

Okay, so apparently this Bluetooth stuff is named after a 10th century king of Denmark who enjoyed eating blueberries a bit too much, resulting in blue stained teeth. Harold "Bluetooth" Gormson helped to unite Sweden, Norway, and Denmark much like the way Bluetooth helps to unite your wireless gadgets under a single standard. And did we mention that the Bluetooth logo is composed of the rune characters representing his initials - H and B. But that's enough useless trivia for today - let's move onto something much more important!

We have taken the ever-popular Retro Handset and updated it to connect to your cell phone using Bluetooth technology. That's right! No more tangled up phone cords with a bluetooth retro handset. Now people will think you're really crazy talking into a old-time handset connected to... nothing.

Retro Phone - Vintage Style Phone

Vintage Phone

A retro phone that is surely a conversation piece in any setting. This replica telephone by Crosley, famous for quality electronics since the 1920s, has all the charm and classic style missing in wireless phones yet still has the modern conveniences you need like a faux rotary dial with push-button technology and earpiece volume control. True to the original from the 1930s, this European-style black desk phone has a mechanical bell in the base that rings brightly and a coil cord. This phone is so cool.

How to recapture the good old days of honest-to-goodness conversations.

      I would love the whole retro phones back personally! The sound quality was much better I think.

      That would certainly help reduce some of the worries people have about cell phones causing brain tumors etc. Personally, I don't use my cell phone enough to worry about it but it's tempting to get one for using skype on my PC.
