Welcome to Vintage Mobile Phones. The home of the vintage mobile phone & vintage cell phone. 

Call them "The Brick" "Retro" "Classic" "Old School" or simply "Vintage", this site is where you can find out more about and buy those old phones. Whether you are a collector, or interested in a phone as a toy, prop or to put on the shelf, we have phones from non-working to mint-in-the-box, and prices to suit all pockets. Most of the phones for sale here are Motorola phones as these were the most popular of the early mobile phones, however other makes are listed for sale. If the phone you are interested in is not listed here, then please check back regularly, as other phones will be listed.
 


Phones fall into two categories - analogue or digital. The first mobile phones were all analogue, and these are for display only, as the analogue network is only operated in a few areas of the world now. The digital network was introduced in 1992 and within a few years became the network of choice. The early digital phones, that you will find for sale here, operate on 900Mhz, which was the first digital network. It is still widely used (02 and Vodafone in the UK). Which means that some of the big brick phones can still be used today.

The story of the mobile phone as we know it started in 1983, with the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x. Before then phones had been available in cars, in bags and with a battery the size of a small country. For a history of early phones see 
Wikipedia and Salford
