Many of us would like to see your entire collection. It looks amazing just from one photo. Looking forward to seeing more.

Regards,
Scott K.

This photo is a nice example for new  collectors to see.
It shows that there is no such thing as to many telephones.

Some new collectors feel 20-30 (or 200-300) telephones may be  to many.
They have concerns about what their family and friends might think.

Many seasoned  collectors see no problem with having hundreds or thousands of telephone examples.
We have many members that fall in the latter category.

Speaking of numbers, just how many do you have? Roughly, I don't expect you to have an exact inventory count.

Don’t forget these photos (and there are more) which Andy added to his first CRPF post:

...I had dreams of walking into a place like that.

Other members of my family probably have nightmares about it...   :o  ;D

It is nice to have the forum where folks don't feel like it is a bad thing to have a bed in your phone room.
Family/friends will always have there own opinions.

I love to see people's reactions when they walk into my bedroom!

My collection has change quite a bit since those earlier photos.

This time last year I bought around 300 new phones in one go, from a larger collection that a friend had bought.

I'm updating some of the shelving by my bed, so no new photos at the moment, I'll post some more once that's completed.

The last time I counted them there were around 950, I certainly think I must be over the thousand now.

Thank you all for your comments. Hopefully I can convince some collectors that their phones are no good to anyone languishing in boxes, get them out on some shelves. Some of you complain of having no room, but I think few people could make better use of their space than me?

I've taken some more photos of my collection, but there are 75 photos. There seems to be a 6 photo limit on posts? It would take a long time to upload them?

I don't think it's weird at all to have a phone in... Hey wait  :o (Just kidding)

Try to kick out 6 photos at a time. 1 time posting a  week would be fun, that equates to many weeks of entertainment.
