I recently acquired one of these,



So decided to make a portable telephone,





There is space inside for my phone and I plan to make an adapter to connect the terminals on the outside with a 3.5mm jack plug so that I can use this.

Haha! What a good idea! I wonder if you can get a USB version of the 'candlestick phone' earpiece? That would be nifty, if bulky.
I have seen the plug-in 'Telephone Handset' for mobiles, which might be interesting?

Do let us know how it all goes  Smiley.

thinkgeek had the old timey earpiece you need for this.  Check to see if they still do before they go the way of the dodo.
