How Much Would You Spend On A Retro Phone?

I recently read an article on CrunchGear exposing a website called Frill Free Phones, which sells rotary phones for upwards of $100! This got me thinking... if people are willing to drop $600 for the iPhone which comes fully-equipped with plenty of bells and whistles, why would anyone in their right mind spend over $100 for an old-fashioned phone that doesn't even have call display! Do tell...what's all the fuss about retro telephones? Do they bring sexyback in a way I don't understand? Or is it because they are antiques? Let me know below how much you would spend on an old-school phone!

I love it but putting more than 100$ would be crazy, I wouldn't be sure if it works... About 50$ would be a great deal ^^

If I wanted a retro phone I'd go to the thrift store and pick one up for under five bucks. People are crazy!!

i have a great brown retro phone i use when i'm making outgoing calls to my mom as my cordless seems to not get great reception sometimes. mine was only $4 at a salvation army though! it has great sound and i love the handset on it, plus it is brown and looks nice.

considering I could get one at my grandmothers house, I don't think I'd pay, thanks.

Ejmcmis, I love that retro/modern hybrid phone. I would definetly buy that. But I would never spend $600 on a retro phone that I could buy at a flea market.

I think one would be fine to have but I can't imagine spending more than say $30 for one.

Zero. I already have a really old phone, it works so why throw it away?

I wouldn't spend anything, well maybe $2 from a thrift store, so I could show future grandkids something from the past, but other than that I wouldn't want one.

Ejmcmis, that is a very good hybrid :D of retro and modern phone I love when things are just inspired by retro, but in fact are very modern ;)

I've always been on the fence about the whole retro phone thing, however, when hubby and I were looking for a new phone for a room we picked this one.... It's super cute and cordless! I'm very very happy with it and it was only 45 bucks. I certainly wouldn't pay over 100 for any retro phone!

I never was a fan of retro phones. I prefere futuristic design. So I would not buy one at all. But I can understand people who like things like that...
