Growing Interest in Vintage Mobile Phones

by Matt Chatterley

Over the last few years, there has been increased nostalgia towards vintage consumer electronics, and mobile phones are no exception. Reflecting this, the prices of older mobile phones have started to increase on auction sites such as eBay – particularly rarer devices that have played an important role in the history of the mobile technology.

Since launching the Mobile Phone Museum we’ve noticed several sellers making reference to our descriptions of the more sought-after devices.

We are also getting a growing number of requests from people asking our view on the value of old mobile phones and have been happy to help when we can. Most recently we were contacted by a journalist writing an article for The Sun newspaper in the UK.

This provided readers with advice about whether the old phones they own have any value. Our founder, Ben Wood, was interviewed for the article.

You can find it here if you would like to read the details.
