Answer It: The 17 Most Famous Phones From TV And Movies

Posted in Funny, Phones and tagged

Here at Specialty Answering Service, phones are our livelihood. We believe having a live receptionist answering your calls does more than elevate a business – it becomes inseparable from great customer service. This idea carries over to film and television where iconic phones become part of the story. Whether it’s Batman’s Batphone or Derek Zoolander’s oh-so-tiny cell phone, it’s hard to imagine these movies and TV shows without their iconic telephones. Below, we look at the 17 best phones in TV and cinematic history. Enjoy!

#1. The Bat Phone

Where it appeared: Batman

Sure, you can get Batman’s attention with the bat signal. However, if you’re in the know, then you know that calls for help always originated from the bat phone.

#2. Sony Ericsson Phone

Where it appeared: James Bond

James Bond is a cool cat with a lot of gadgets, so it’s only right for him to have a cool phone too.

What’s better than an iPhone? An EYEphone (minus the painful installation).
