Students: Please refrain from using the phone while Professor Baldi is in the building. It causes him to forget what he was doing and prevents him from hearing.
— Poster description

The Noise Phone (also known as the Pay Phone or just simply the Phone) is a one-use phone used in Baldi's Basics.


The Noise Phone is a photo-cropped picture that has white buttons with the numbers 0-9 and the symbols, *, and #. There is a rectangular screen that displays 25 cents. When a quarter is inserted, the Noise Phone oddly transforms into an in-use Tape Player as there is no in-use sprite unique to the Noise Phone in the game, used or unused.

The poster mentioning the Noise Phone.

It costs one Quarter to use. It is essentially the same as Baldi's Least Favorite Tape, and Baldi will go either towards or away from the Noise Phone. This can be used to further confuse Baldi, and distract him for a while, so the Player can obtain more notebooks. If the Player is in Baldi's sight when they insert a Quarter, then he will still come after them, as he can see them. Sometimes, It's a Bully can be seen standing in front of the phone, forcing the player to give him an item, or wait for either him to go away or the Principal of the Thing to arrive and put him to detention.


General Gameplay

The Noise Phone has a chance to be randomly located at the end of every hall.

Other Appearances


  • The Noise Phone's sprite is an edited photo of a Panasonic DECT 6.0 cordless phone.
    • Looking closely at the top of the Noise Phone, the blurred out Panasonic logo can be seen.
  • The Noise Phone is almost exactly the same as the Tape Player. The only differences are the texture, the size, the location, and that the Player needs a quarter to use it instead of Baldi's Least Favorite Tape.
  • On the Noise Phone's screen, the time "12:51 PM" can be seen behind the "25¢".
  • In Full Game Early Demo, the Noise Phone will not turn into a Tape Player upon used. It is unknown if this was either a bug or a tweak by mystman12's choice.


  • In the Kickstarter exclusive demo, sometimes, the Quarter will not disappear in the inventory slots when using the Noise Phone. The buzzing noise will overlap and eventually grow louder depending how many times when using the phone.
