It arrived today and what a fantastic product it is.Good weight and lovely fire-engine red colour. Also, with this phone-the dialling ring moves around, after you have selected the number just like the original. It is NOT a push button inferior version like so many of the cheaper versions which are disguised as having a movable dialling ring.
The bell ring is lovely; just like the original. The handpiece has a good weight. For us, it is well above other examples that we saw on the market. Voices sound clear both to the caller and the receiver.
My mother is absolutely thrilled (she is a critical buyer!); it has exceeded her expectations many fold.She now wants to buy 2 more of these for other rooms in the house! I do not think anyone would be disappointed with this retro phone;very highly recommended.
The item arrived very securely packaged, so securely packaged I had to unbox it in the post office that I picked it up from because I couldn't fit in my rucksack to take home! Even once I had taken it out of the packaging it was sent in I had to ride my bike home with my rucksack open - I guess it was a bit bigger than I was expecting it to be!
It works flawlessly on our BT landline out of the box. The call quality from both ends appears great and the volume of the call can be adjusted with a dial on the underside of the telephone. The ringer is loud enough and has a nice 'retro' tone!
The red one I have looks lovely and there is definitely a good quality feel to the product.
Mum loves her new telephone!
This is 2017 and it can't possibly be just like the original GPO 746. It doesn't have the full, sonorous ring but it's a strong echo; the dial doesn't canter back with the musical hum that some of us remember, though it takes its time. It's not as imperturbably solid as the real thing but quite heavy; you could never call it a trinket.
But compared to the dreary, studded cartons and spatulas which are contemporary landline handsets, it' a joyful reminder of the miracle it is to call people from a distance. You will love it for its elegant presence and the sheer pleasure of using it. The first thing my sister did was to smile at the sight of it; the second was to stick out a finger, twirl the dial and giggle.
And that says everything!

I like it but the dial isn't quite as they used to be - sounds more plastic than it used to. But rings like the old ones!Published 5 months ago by miss c a barnes
The 60/70 telephone was as I expected it to be and it is working very well
I may send for another phone in the near future.
To say this is a replica of an old 70s/80s GPO/BT phone is a lie. You only have to look at the dial to know if its an accurate copy or not. Read morePublished 6 months ago by BetterNameThanBefore
Looks great in the picture but received a grey phone instead of the red one I ordered. Looked and felt a little plasticky. Didn't like the black cable that came with the phone. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Barry Gates

Takes me back to times past!
Exactly the same as the original and heavy enough so as not to move when you pick up the receiver . A lot better than the newer type it replaced
Just what I wanted.......Brings back a lot of memories.......My daughter calls it the 'bat phone' Simple to use, just need to be patient when waiting for the dial to move around.Published 20 months ago by Diane Johnson
