This beautiful iPhone dock might cost $195, but it will last longer than you. Cast one at a time, by hand, the resin dock and phone handset has a little cutout in which your iPhone can lie and rest whilst you place and answer calls via the retro-hefty earpiece.
You do need to run Apple’s white cable to the iPhone to connect (we assume that, as the phone comes from an Etsy maker, it is not licensed for a built-in connector), but you can hook up another USB cable round back to charge and sync the iPhone.
I used to use a real old phone like this one, converted to fit modern sockets but complete with the original, crackly charcoal-filled mic and speaker. It was terrible to use, but a lot of fun. Combine this dock with AT&T’s legendarily bad coverage and one of the many rotary-dialing iPhone Apps in the store and you could almost be back in the 1930s. Currently sold out.
