Preserving our mobile heritage

Conceived and curated by mobile technology enthusiasts Ben Wood and Matt Chatterley, the Mobile Phone Museum holds an impressive collection of devices launched through the decades since the mobile industry began.

This not-for-profit organisation was created to preserve our mobile heritage, celebrate technological achievements, spark nostalgic discussions, and educate future generations.

The Mobile Phone Museum is home to over 2,300 individual devices spanning across 200 brand names. Currently hosted virtually, the ambition is to create a physical pop-up exhibition by 2025, to mark the 40th anniversary of the first mobile phone call made in the UK.

the Story

The Mobile Phone Museum primarily relies on public donations. Each device donated is catalogued, labelled, and photographed.

The donor for each device is named on the website. In addition to listing the vital facts and features, each device has its own story often representing a moment in mobile phone history the owners of the museum are keen to capture. The entire catalogue is listed on the website, where it is possible to search by brand, model and year.

Memorable models are also featured in collections including Best Selling, Firsts, James Bond films, Luxury, Fashion and even the Ugliest!

In partnership

The Mobile Phone Museum is proud to partner with Vodafone as its lead sponsor. As a leading tech pioneer Vodafone has a strong track record, making the UK’s first mobile phone call and sending the first text message amongst numerous technology firsts.

As a supporter, Genuine Solutions provides the Mobile Phone Museum with a processing hub for donated devices. We help categorise each device as it comes in and safely store the handsets, ready for the next event.

As we have a number of mobile recycling take back schemes operating alongside our charity partners, we are also in a position to keep an eye out for any missing treasures to tick off the museum’s Most Wanted list.

Having the support of Genuine Solutions has been invaluable to the Mobile Phone Museum and we hugely appreciate its enthusiasm for the project. Being able to securely store the collection, as well as take advantage of Genuine Solutions’ expertise in logistics, has allowed us to continue our ambitious growth trajectory and we look forward to developing our relationship with further joint initiatives in future.
