Retro Phone Connect was (gasp) not real!

We lied. OK? We’re sorry.

We posted the Retro Phone Connect, a Home Phone Connect 2 paired with a pretty awesome old-school rotary dial phone, as the Retro Phone Connect. We priced it at $6,000, on sale for $4,750. You probably caught on to the fact that it was a joke.

The Retro Phone Connect device page has since been removed from the Ting devices page. However, it will live on forever in our hearts. Or something.

While it is conceivable to turn a rotary phone into a cell phone (like this GSM-only, alas), we’re focussed on getting the latest and greatest, not the oldest and oddest.
