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

The Cell Phone is an informational item that displays fishing power, weather, moon phase, elevation, distance east/west, 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, narrowly beating the Ankh Shield which uses 11.

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.

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 multifunctionality 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 also be a reference to cameras, specifically ones that point back at the user's face.
  • Although it is a powerful item and has a rarity of lime, the Cell Phone can be acquired pre-Hardmode, since all ingredients can be obtained prior to defeating the Wall of Flesh.
  • The phone, sharing the Magic Mirror's use time, is one of the few items qualifying with "snail" speed.
