Lend me your ears

Those little Bluetooth headsets are the most annoying invention ever. You can’t tell if people are crazy babblers, talking to you, or on the phone. It’s a cause for confusion. And nice people don’t confuse their friends.

Nice people buy these phones so that everybody knows when they’re on their mobile phone…

The infamous Portable Rotary Phone is an original rotary phone that has been modified to be a cellular phone. The Port-O-Rotary has a functional rotary dial, rings the original, loud metallic bells when a call is received, and even has a dial tone!

Phone comes fully assembled and tested. All you have to do is open the phone, insert your SIM card, and turn the unit on! The unit will utilize your phone number and account minutes. The internal cellular module works within any country that has one of the 900MHz, 1800MHz, or 1900MHz cellular bands (90% of the world). The Port-O-Rotary is truly international with up to 15-digit dialing, auto-frequency selection, ‘+’ characters, and PIN # entry for pre-paid cards.

Sadly, it’s not quite as cool as the iPhone. But it’s close.
