Hello??

Everything old is new again.

I grew up with handsets attached to old rotary dial telephones. They we got pushbutton dials. I had a pink princess phone and then a clear see through unisonic phone. One kind of phone I never had was a yellow wall phone.

When I was a kid, we had one telephone and it had a special place in the hallway between the front door and the kitchen. It had a nice long cord so we could take it up and around the the staircase that went upstairs. By the time my sister and I were out of high school, we both worked for the phone company so we had our own phones with private phone numbers, which drove our mother nuts.

When my kids were teens, we had one family cell phone that all four of us shared.

Now, most people have cell phones, including me. In a lot of cases, people no longer have landland phones. My 92 year old dad depends on just his cell phone. I have both.

No you can come full circle and have a retro handset with your smartphone. You can buy this just about anywhere like Walmart or Amazon.

You can even get a cell dock with a usable handset.

Retro seems to be big these days and everything old school is new again. You can even add an old fashioned typewriter to your tablet or phone. https://www.etsy.com/listing/44692496/iretrofone-base

“This gorgeous Underwood Champion typewriter has been lovingly restored and then modified to work as a USB Keyboard for PC, Mac, or even iPad! That’s right — it works as a fully functional computer keyboard! Additionally, the USB Typewriter now features Bluetooth capability, so you can connect to almost any tablet, smartphone, or mobile device.  It also features a nifty SD-card slot, so you can save your work when you do not feel like connecting to a screen.
 
The modification is very clean, and leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter. You can use it as your primary computer keyboard, or turn off your monitor altogether and type on paper while saving your work to disk. You can also use it as a convenient keyboard dock for your iPad or other tablet. A beautiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.
 
The USB Typewriter can type all letters, numerals, and punctuation marks that a standard USB keyboard can. It also includes Shift, Space, and Return (which is literally activated by the typewriter’s return carriage!). Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, esc, ctrl, and so on are available with a special toggle key. Additionally, the USB Typewriter can easily be configured to type in any number of languages.

The USB Typewriter now features an additional Bluetooth capability, so you can connect to your favorite Bluetooth mobile devices, like smartphones, tablets, and even some e-readers.  This feature is now standard on all USB Typewriters.”
