Found 8th Jan 2014
Not expecting to feel the 80's retro love from many of you with this one, but here goes. Comes SIM free, and operates either as a standalone GSM mobile or as a bluetooth handset for your existing phone. Features a hands-free speakerphone, an SD card slot, music player, and the game Snake! Cheapest I can find it elsewhere is £29.95 at Amazon and Carphone Warehouse.

Ha, ace! Won't get it myself but heat added for the retro vibes!

Next thing we'll be seeing is a free screen protector with every hard case sold via eBay of course.

"Weight 2.6g."
These amazing modern day light weight materials.

Also, a 32Gb expandable memory slot, why?!

Haha makes my first mobile look compact. A bt cell net handset, you could have killed someone with it if you threw it at them

Still got one lying around somewhere at my parents. I remember taking it on a school trip and being mocked, but then people needed to use it and I was still the only one to have a phone yet - may have been old but it was better than nothing!

Original snake game built in

SOLD!

totally agree

voted cold as the op was not expecting heat

It is £29.95 including delivery at Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Binatone-Brick-Sim-Free-Mobile-Phone/dp/B00GN88E42

They also have a DECT version for £60 amazon.co.uk/gp/…4SC

Is it touch screen, can't tell from the description?

Amazing. But I'd never actually use it.... tempted to get the landline version though

Strange comment, I don't own and have never owned a Apple iPhone 5C 16GB.


Yes, humour (or at least a stab at it) is strange,isn't it?

When an item from the 80's is considered retro you know life isn't being kind, v cool however.

aerial is solid and easily snapped off so don't drop the thing
(_;)

Love it. Funny enough I saw someone with one like this not that many moons ago.

Don't understand, is buying a crap handheld b+w tv retro and cool too?

I might get one to take to the next Gig i attend. I think even the moshpit pick pockets would turn their nose up at that thing :o)

Would have bought it if it was being sold by Index - The Catalogue Shop.

Somehow buying it at one of the shrinking group of high street retailers that's still managing to survive doesn;t seem retro enough

Investigating further i am glad to reveal that there are 2 GSM models of these.

THE BRICK ORIGINAL with 1 month standby and THE BRICK POWER: with 3 month standby

They are also planning to release a XXL brick battery, which will have a 6 month standby and 2 day talk time. Don't know if this battery can be fitted on either of the models though.

I am sold...

Hmm, surely the old ones didn't have colour screens. It seems a bit of a half assed attempt at a retro mobile.

Is it a functioning aerial ,if it is its bound to break off .

Is that a canoe in my pocket or.......

Mobile phones give you radiation and testicular cancer..

According to the Argos website it can only be delivered, and since delivery costs £3.95 it actually costs £30.94. BEWARE!

Is this really a 4G enabled Internet smartphone.....bargain !

The battery life and talk Time is stunning compared to smart phones, also could be used in self defense (I think in one of the Mike Tyson fights his bodyguards battered some one with it )

Is he calling Catherine for some beever action.Ile be home soon honey.Hot deal anyway op.
