There are not many uses for an analog, landline phone anymore, but you may need to have one for various reasons, from your cable company's insistence to good old-fashioned Luddite preference. If you do want an old-fashioned phone that is neither mobile nor 'smart,' there is no reason why you should overlook one of the cool, retro see-through phones that were so popular in the 1980s and 1990s. These phones are in a translucent plastic casing, allowing you to see the wires and other mechanisms inside the phone. You cannot necessarily see anything moving through the wires, but this is still a rare, old school accessory that can impress guests to your home or apartment. Next time your trend-hunting buddies brag about their latest cell phone models, you can share a secret smile with yourself, knowing that you are the only one in the group with a retro phone. There is a vast inventory of see-through phones available on eBay, but note that these phones may require a landline to work, unless you are a technology whiz who has figured out an alternative method of telephonic communication.
