5.0 out of 5 stars Retro phone at its best 16 Aug 2011
By paul
I bought this phone as it reminds me of when i was a teenager and used to play with the rotary dial of the old BT 746 phone. This phone has a traditional bell ringer and of course that traditional rotary dial. The phone can be used with telephone banking etc. great product with a real retro feel. 10 out of 10

I love the phone. It replaced another repro one that didn't last long but this one is heavy and sturdy and a great colour - looks great in my hall. OK so it takes longer to dial but it looks so good who cares? I have a push button one upstairs if I want to use that.

I had a problem as I ordered two in error but the company were great about refunding me. Shows they care about customers and aren't so desperate to sell that they won't refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent retro telephone 27 Dec 2012
By Steve
I received this telephone for Christmas and I have to say, it's fantastic!

1) The sound quality is second to none, in fact I had forgotten how tinny/weak some of the cordless phones are in comparison to having a corded phone in the house.

2) The rotary dial is very authentic and supports full DTMF dialling, so this is not a problem if you're dialling an automated phone system. Yes, numbers take longer to dial but by the time you've mis-keyed on a digital phone and re-dialled it's not much slower. For the retro effect, it's spot on.

3) The phone contains a real bell ringer which you can either turn on or off. It sounds much better than the digital phone ringer - leave it on!!

4) The earpiece has two volume settings (low/high).

5) The build quality feels very solid - I'm sure it'll last for years and years.

A couple of bonuses I hadn't initially considered - for anyone with only cordless phones, it's a good idea to have a corded phone in the house in case of power cuts. Secondly, (a minor point) we have replaced one of the cordless phones with this so it's saving electricity by not running a another cordless phone charger.

If you're after a quality retro phone, then look no further.

My husband is one of those people who do not like modern technology and so, when his ancient desk phone finally gave up he said that he would have to have something very similar or stop phoning! This phone does everything he wants it to, and looks the part as well, so phew, we are all happy bunnies again!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great look, Great Sound, Good Quality but... 23 Mar 2013
By Tori

I like almost everything about this phone, it looks fantastic, the ring tone is authentic and fun and it has all the vintage features.The only problem is that though I can hear the person I speak with very well, others say I sound very quiet. The sound settings are only quiet or loud. This controls both the ring tone and the ear piece. Even on loud my 'conversation partner' thinks I sound quiet. So, only purchase if everyone you know has good hearing...
