« Vintage 90s BellSouth 10 Channel Aoutoscan Cordless Telephone USED NOT TESTED (313941328198), 2023. »
Model numero: (HAC 534) FCC ID: C5Q9410 SMOOTHLINE LTD, Made in China. Variable dimension.

I found this telephone on eBay after weeks of research, digging and digging on different websites and Reddit forums. I ended up buying it from Karim who is based in Algeria. This BellSouth cordless phone appears to be a model really close (or similar) to the one that Casey “Cici” Cooper (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is using in Scream 2. It is the derivative of the BellSouth model used by Casey Becker (Drew Barrymore) in Scream 1, this model being practically untraceable today (Casey’s Becker one). Both Casey are the first murdered victims in Scream 1 & 2 and are the only ones using this kind of BellSouth white cordless phone in the franchise (to my investigation and knowledge). This type of regular home phone then will tend to slowly disappear in the other Scream films to soon be replaced by cellphones and smartphones.
