Forget 3G and handsfree kits; phones were far more entertaining in the good old days. Unwieldy hunks of plastic with clunking great dials, shrieking bells, pulse dialling and, best of all, chunky handsets. You remember; the hefty dumb-bell-like things that you could barely balance between shoulder and ear. Needless to say there's no place for such impractical appendages on today's slimline mobiles. Or is there?

Despite a relentless stream of mobile telephonic innovation, talking on the phone just isn't as satisfying as it used to be. For starters you can't slam a mobile down in disgust, chuck the receiver skywards in delight, or re-enact your favourite 'This is the Sweeney, sunshine, and we're comin' ta get ya!' TV moment.

Fortunately, all that's about to change thanks to the technologically advanced but wonderfully retro Pop Phone. Simply plug this highly evocative hunk of soft-touch plastic into your iPhone (or iPad or laptop for VOIP/Skype calls) and you'll be the envy/laughing stock of all those who encounter you. It's even got an old-style curly wurly cable.

To be fair, attaching an old-school handset to a modern mobile is a bit like strapping a typewriter to a laptop. But that's exactly why we love it. It doesn't make sense, but it's guaranteed to get a laugh and attract attention wherever you may roam. Imagine the look on people's faces when your mobile rings and you pull this colourful relic out of your pocket.

There's something unfathomably satisfying about talking on the Pop Phone. Maybe it's the incongruous juxtaposition of old and new; maybe it's the thrill of talking into an ergonomically ancient design classic; or maybe it's just the fact that it makes you look faintly ridiculous. Who cares? Just enjoy the irony and buy one!

Customer Reviews

Can this work with an adapter for phones with a different jack socket? I have tried with a jack to fit a Nokia E71 and no luck. Thank you, Emma.
Emma, London - 19th January 2012
Firebox says: Hi, its only designed to be used with a phone with a normal headphone jack, like the iPhone, Blackberry, laptops etc
I just brought one of these - why will it not work with my nokia? It plugs in ok then no sound through the handset. Do I have to install special software?
Siobhan, England - 21st December 2011
Firebox says: Doesn't sound quite right Siobhan. Drop us and email at info@firebox.com and we will look into it for you.
Can you answer a phone call from the pop phone? or do you have to answer it from your iPhone then put the pop phone to your ear?
Edd Yeo, Tamworth, Midlands - 6th December 2011
Firebox says: Hi Edd, there is an answer/hang-up button in the middle of the Pop Phone receiver so you don't have to use the iPhone to take calls. You can just about see the button in the main product image.
Will this work on a MacBook Pro when using Skype?
Andrew, Runcorn, Cheshire, UK - 13th November 2011
Firebox says: It sure will Andrew!
