Archer's Cell Phone

Cell Phones are a common tool used by the ISIS field agents and employees. They are extremely helpful for the primary function of communication, as well as collecting and producing intel by photography and voice recording. Almost every ISIS employee has one. Cellphones are some of the more notable modern twists applied to the show's ambiguously vintage aesthetic.

Trivia[]

  • Cellphone technology is one of the most modern elements of the Archer universe. As of season 12, It is depicted in its recent form as widely consumer accessible and capable of accessing internet enabled services such as online banking and social media.
    • The most common cell phone model appears to be modelled after Sony Ericsson phones. Rather fittingly, these are the same brand of phones used by the character James Bond since the 90s. It appears to have a 30-pin connector similar to legacy Apple devices, and is revealed in Season 5 to have a touchscreen.
    • Different models appear in later seasons reflecting design evolutions between the early-2000s to late 2010s, such as slide-out landscape phones, clamshell flip phones, and full touchscreen smartphones.
    • From season 6 the UI design for the cell phone is updated in line with most computer displays in the show. It is now accented in white with a blue hexagon background.
    • A recurring joke throughout the show has characters destroy their cell phones after receiving aggravating phone calls, usually from Archer.
