Fun Idea
« on: February 24, 2010, 12:43:23 PM »
So I found this retro style bluetooth headset and had a great idea:

What if I got a non working phone for my desk at work and used this handset instead!

It would just have to look nice, and the handset would be connected to my cell phone.  I could take calls on my retro phone all day long!   ;D

Man that is great. Much more cost effective than the last one I seen. I would like to try one of these handsets. Here is the other one.

Does anyone know which phone that bluetooth one would best match?

Jeremy, it resembles an F1 handset.  Those were used on various models, but the Model 302 comes to mind first when I see one.

Thanks Dennis.

Maybe I'll try to find one that's un-fixable, and just clean it up to use with that bluetooth headset. 

I think it'd be awesome to have on my desk at work, and to answer it with people around would blow their minds.


My apologies if this offends any of the purists here...   :-\

  I can't seem to find the link at the moment, but I have read a writeup where a guy took an actual WE G3 handset and installed his cellphone's guts in it.
