    Old Style Telephones

    Being an old fart I love anything retro and want to get an old style telephone like this:



    But I want it to be cordless [ so you walk around with just the handset ]
    I want it to have a dial [ if possible ]
    I want it to have the old style ringers [ two metal bells inside ]
    And I want it to have an answer phone [ if possible, if not I would use the answer phone service with my supplier ]

    Anyone know where I could get such a thing ? I've seen a few around like on Firebox but nothing really with all my fussy requirements !!

    Wouldnt be very retro if it was cordless!

    It would then need to be a different shape - for batteries and if not a keypad then at least some buttons, plus contacts for charging. Id be surprised if you could find one

    If you've got a big red phone it's better not to use it. That way you can pretent it's connected directly to No.10.

    I was thinking more on the lines of the bat phone:
