This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is an alien phone with a custom handset (my second BHAV editing attempt, after the blue cereal). You can choose the colour of the base (light grey, blue or green) and the handset (if you use design mode on it while it's in your sim's hand). Choosing the colour of the base won't affect the handset, so you can choose a grey base and a blue handset, for example.

I hope you'll enjoy it !

It's not that hard. If you can mesh and make cereal, you can make a phone :D

This is one of the most truly great objects I have seen in awhile - It's perfect for the paranormal side of sims life.

Oooh, I love the little satellite dish. Guess this is a cordless phone, huh? :-)

Wow, this is very cool. I was getting sick of the Maxis phone.

Hey fellow simmers, I'm not here at the moment. I've left the simming community for other hobbies in life. Eventually I will be back. Until then, don't expect any of your questions to be answered. Until I come back....

Happy simming!

Very nice! Phones, IMO, must be the least (re)meshed item of all! Can always use more!!!

This is great, but it doesn't replace the default phone does it?
