That looks, horrible!

On the listing, it says "great conversation piece," is that its a old phone or that it got screwed up and nobody knows how??

Well shoot - no ringing on incoming calls.  I guess the price of $50 including shipping is a little high without the ringer.

What are people's obsession with melted phones?  It's even worse that lamp phones!  I don't get it at all...

Too much of a heated conversation?

That's what happens when you let your dragon of a Mother in Law use your phone on a bad day.... :D

Still, it is a waste of a phone, I do wonder what goes through people's heads when they think "Hmm, I could turn this valuable collectors piece into a pile of worthless melted plastic and sell it as art for much less than I could have if I had just cleaned it up and sold it as it was!".... ::)
