The purpose of this Instructable is to use an old corded phone to talk on Skype! In this Instructable I will show you how to build a connector that will convert a phone jack to a male sound and mic jack that can plug into your computer!!! This way your can use ANY corded phone with your connector. Also the connector is so small it will fit in your pocket!!!

Step 1: Gathering the parts

You will need:

1: Corded phone (MUST BE WORKING!!!!!!!)
2: Corded phone base
3: Phone wire (preferably the one that came with the corded phone) (must have 4 wires)
4: Old head phone (it doesn’t matter if the ear buds are gone, you only need the plug in)
5: Old mic wire with plug
6: Screw driver (duh)
7: Soldering iron
8: Solder
9: Wall plug-in for phone base (optional, used in step four)
10: Glue gun
11: Solder sucker (for removing solder, this is not needed but it helps)

<p>Hi, nice hack! I'm trying to do it myself but I'm having some problems, could not understand it all. My corded phone wire, for example, it has three wires inside (blue, yellow, red). It is an old phone. Should I connect my headphone wire and mic wire to these corded phone wires?</p>
