4.0 out of 5 stars Retro hand set
I bought this for my mother to use online with Skype as I thought the traditional feel of the handset over a headset was preferable.
It has good clear sound, with a matt rubber texture so is easy to hold.

3.0 out of 5 stars Got it to work- eventually
The product came with no instructions, I plugged it into my I phone and it did not work- searched the internet for instructions, no joy.
I did manage to get it to work though - I had to change the settings on the I phone- go to Settings, ipod button, TV Signal and change to NTSC.

20 minutes of pfaffing but the product works well and feels nice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Handset is fine. Let down by connector cables., 21 April 2014

Unfortunately, a case of doing the hard part well but failing on the easy part. Used with my laptop, the earpiece worked but the microphone didn't. Fortunately we considered swapping the connector cables with some we already had... And then it worked fine. Reading the other reviews it sounds like others were having the same issue. Since adequate cables are available for a few pence, why settle for something that doesn't work?

This toy allows you to hear nothing and be able to cut off numerous calls without having said anything.
Even better, you'll have to unattach any case that you may have your phone protected by as that extra 1 or 2mm of leather will guarantee that no connection can be made with the 3.5mm jack.

Feels & looks nice - but the volume is too low (even when up full) and the hang-up button doesn't work on the Galaxy S3.

This review is from: Original Retro Handset for All Mobile Phones & Computers - Works with Apple iPhone, HTC, Samsung and other Smart Phones - With Volume Control - Soft Touch Black (Electronics)
The actual handset was okay sound wise but the cable is far too short and stiff, only any good if you put your mobile in a shirt pocket, so I sent it back. Returns was a breeze.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works with Blackberry well, 26 Jan 2013

Works fine with my Blackberry Bold, but, does not work with my iPhone 3GS.
The button on he handset answers a call, but, does not end the call.
During a call the button Mutes the phone.
Good clear sound.
A longer cord would help.

1.0 out of 5 stars Retro handset, make you sound like a dalek, 28 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Retro Handset for All Mobile Phones & Computers - Works with Apple iPhone, HTC, Samsung and other Smart Phones - With Volume Control - Soft Touch Black (Electronics)
Waste of money, took nearly a month to arrive by courier, who set off on foot from China.
When it arrived and I made phone call with this attached, everyone said 'are you in a cave', 'you sound like a Dalek underwater', as soon as the handset was disconnected, the call became clear.

Well, it arrived on time , well packed
But when I open the outer box the inner box was like open before and i couldn't see the handset i saw the white plastic lining and i thought they sent a wrong colour but when I open the box i found it velvety black but it was like used before and someone had returned them didn't try them really cos the cord was soooo short like i have to carry my phone or iPad all the time to talk which doesn't fulfil its purpose so i contacted the customer service and i refund it for the full cost with free postage
