Meet man that have over 1000 phones in his house (photos)

Sahabettin Özçelik has probably got the largest collection of mobile phones you’ve ever laid eyes on.

Starting out as a repairer two decades ago, he has amassed a collection of over 1,000 phones. Almost all of them are from the days before smartphones, when you actually had to push a button rather than the screen to call someone.

Özçelik lives in Van, an eastern province of Turkey, and continues to collect phones even as he repairs them.

His collection used to be even larger, but thieves broke into his house and stole 700 of them two years ago.

Even so, he has managed to fill a room with the technological artifacts.
