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.
Since I was having problems making a functional iPhone, I decided to make a decorative one to place around the house. I figured that you would see this object more than when your sim uses the cell phone for a few seconds. I'll probably make a real cell phone once I figure it out, but now you have this!

So, it's a simple small iPhone for your simmies! Enjoy! Cost $40, and can be found in the Decor/Plants section.

And for your richer sims:

Polygon Counts:
Faces - 204, Vertices - 168

Wes, Inge, PeterJones and everyone for all of their wonderful tools and help!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks man! But do you plan to make it functional soon? maybe as a mp3/phone combo. You could make a core package so it replaces the standard phone.

So, I downloaded it to my Sims 2, only to realize later, after hours of searching, that it was for Sims 3. Could you change that? PLEASE, make it for Sims 2, it'll look great on my teenager's desk, next to her netbook! THANKS!

Looking for the netbook I mentioned above? Here, let me give you a hand:
