To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a great retro phone that's a nice compromise between a true vintage rotary dial from the 1960's and something more modern but with (almost) the same look and feel. Fit's perfectly in our mid century modern home and it's surprisingly heavy like the bakelite phones of old.
Hooked it up to a small, AT&T digital answering system (upc 650530023910 - see pic - pardon the unfinished look - still remodeling) and it works perfectly for what we want.
An "old working telephone" is what my daughter asked us to buy her for Christmas. I was really afraid to buy one online, sight unseen because I was afraid it wouldn't work and she would be disappointed. I really loved this one the best out of the ones that I found online, and I knew she would love it because it is pink.
I'm so glad I bought this one. It's so cute in her room, and definitely has a "classic" look. She squealed when she opened it.
It worked perfectly, we have had none of the issues with static that some other reviewers have mentioned. It sounds crystal clear when she calls me multiple times a day ;-)
Just like the original I used to lease from our phone company, except this one features Redial, Flash, Volume Controls (Receiver & Ring) and Push Buttons (I actually would have loved a dial pad!) The receiver is a bit heavy, but it has the same solid feel as the original Princess phone we had many years ago. Phone itself is solid & heavy...stays put if curly-cord is pulled or extended. Sound quality is wonderful...no buzzing or muted voice on other end. HIGHLY recommend!
This was my first phone when I was young. I like the quality of this phone. Heavy and I like the earpiece as it is easier for me to hear with the shape of the earphone. These old phone designs just can't be beat. All the newer phones are so flimsy and plasticy.
