We saw a rainbow of retro phones in the window of The Touch on Valencia and began realizing we've noticed cord-ful phones making quite a comeback.

Perhaps this trend has been building for some time, but we like to think it was Juno's hamburger phone that pushed it to another level. For all the convenience a cordless affords, being roped to the phone has its perks. For example, it doesn't need to be plugged in, making it great for blackouts and "red phone" situations. Speaking of which, here's one we like:

Home Decorators Collection has a good selection of new phones made to look like the classic styles, including this chrome wall-mounted model:

And of course eBay is a great source for the real deal. We saw this genie phone starting at $10.50:

If you like the look but are glad to have cut the cord some time ago (we couldn't resist), here's a great cordless version that still maintains the classic look:
