I suppose the only downside to this phone is that it's pretty much destined to remain in the vintage geek time capsule forever. . .or at least until landlines fall back into style.
Remember this? I absolutely had one of these in my teenage bedroom, it lit up when you received a phone call and just looked generally awesome. Now, Urban Outfitters, my favorite purveyor of funky vintage geekery is re-releasing this teenage classic! The Clear Trimline Phone sells for $28 and has all the features you loved about your first clear phone — yes, it lights up when it rings!
