For an extensive guide to crafting this item, see Guide:Crafting a Cell Phone.

The Cell Phone is an informational item that displays fishing power, weather, moon phase, elevation, distance from the center of the world, time, nearest valuable environment item, player speed, current DPS, total kills of the last enemy attacked, rare creatures nearby, and total number of nearby enemies. It can also teleport the player home, similar to a Magic Mirror. The Cell Phone has the most complex crafting tree in Terraria using 13 base items (and 7 crafting operations), narrowly beating the Ankh Shield which uses 11.

Example information displayed by a Cell Phone.

Unlike most other informational items, the Cell Phone does not double as an accessory, and cannot be equipped in accessory slots. It instead functions solely from the player's ordinary inventory slots, which puts it into the tool category.

While the inventory screen is open, Cell Phone information is hidden. Instead, an icon is displayed for each information type, each of which can be clicked to toggle their display on or off.

In multiplayer, information from the Cell Phone will be shared with other nearby players on the same team.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Cell Phone's nature as a single "catch-all" device parallels the multi-functionality of real modern smartphones which have largely rendered once-common appliances like watches, compasses, timers, radios, and atlases obsolete in most cases. The usage of a mirror in the recipe could likewise be a reference how a smartphone's selfie camera may be used as a mirror.
  • The Cell Phone does not seem to be based off any particular real-life smartphone models.
  • Although it is a powerful item and has a rarity of Rarity level: 7, the Cell Phone can be acquired pre-Hardmode as all ingredients can be obtained prior to defeating the Wall of Flesh.
  • The Cell Phone, sharing the Magic/Ice Mirror's use time, is one of the few items qualifying with "snail" speed.
