Well this isn't really a "trough the phone type of sound" but i see what you mean. Well i have little experience working with this kind of sound, but you achieve it with a lo-quality mic, having the vocal recorded really loud, i mean really loud, it can crack, peak and then, when mixing, just lower it so it stops crackling, that's what i would do. Also try working with the EQ. Raise the mid frequencies way high, raise the highs for a more harsh sound, cut them for some softer sound. Experiment, try everything. Good luck

Izotope make a free vinyl plug-in that simulates the crackles & scratchiness of a vinyl record - that can be quite good for lo-fi stuff if you use it sparingly.

I have a plugin called the Grungelizer. Now sure if it came with Cubase AI4, or I downloaded it.
If I downloaded it, it was free.
I can make a 2010 technology recording sound like it was recorded in the 20s.
