iRetroPhone Takes Your iPhone Back in Time

Remember back in the day, when all phones still came with wires and people had to physically turn a dial to call someone? I do. And I also recall begging my mom to let me be the one to do the dialing because I liked turning the dial with my finger. Through the years, the dials disappeared, phones became flatter and more compact, and eventually, even the wires had to go.

I like the phones we have these days; punching the digits of the number you want to dial (or speed dialing from a directory) versus having to turning the rotary dial is faster and more convenient. Trust me, rotary dials aren’t your friend if you’re prone to make dialing mistakes or if you’re in a hurry to place a call. Still, if you long for the old rotary phone, you might want to check out the iRetroPhone. It’s basically a dock for your iPhone which can charge and sync while providing you with a physical handset to make your calls.

The iRetroPhone dock includes a wired handset which connects to your phone’s 3.5mm headphone jack, and lets you go old school when making calls. It can also charge your iPhone at the same time. Perhaps the highlight of the iRetroPhone is that it works with an app that lets you simulate rotary dialing on your touchscreen smartphone. Of course, you could just download the free iRetroPhone app and skip the dock.

If you ask me, it’s a bit of a hassle having to dial the old school way. But if you want to take a walk down memory lane, you can get one of these iRetroPhones  for $99.99(USD) from USB Fever.
