How do I put do mp3 playback in a vintage phone please? Answered

This might be a double post by me. sorry
Wondering if this is possible. I would like to make an old landline vintage style phone work so when I pick up the the earpiece, it automaticaly plays an mp3 through the earpiece, until its set down again.

The style of phone I have is the one where the listening piece hangs on the side and the talking piece is part of the phone, the two handed style. Can anyone give some advice on how to do this please or point me in the right direction. Cheers

I guess the first bit is how do I get the mp3 player to activate when I lift the earpiece.

picking up and setting down the earpiece would need to be a switch to play the mp3. However you would need the mp3 player to be on already. It might be easier to make an Arduino that automatically plays a song when turned on. Look up an Arduino music player to get started.

Thanks, I will look in to that. If I have the Arduino battery powered so its on all the time, can I get the mp3 to start playing when I lift the handset? Because the has a switch on it already so could I add a code to have that play/stop?
