“Retro look classic” — Floydee, London
“We bought one of these phones simply for the look (black model) and basic features. It does the job it is intended to do in this modern world of ours: receive calls and dial out. The ring is not imposing as you would expect from the original models and harks back to ye old phone ringing days. Only one ring tone, its a corded phone and so the handset is not mobile around the house, the receiver and base are solid and weighty (as like the original models). It fits in well with the look of our post war flat actually. We need nothing more for this phone and so it does the job well.
Each of my family has a mobile phone and hardly use our retro phone as we call it, thus when we get a call on it we ALL know its the house phone. In fact, could have probably got the red model to make it really stand out even more when we get a call on it! My only gripe is it that the finished could be more polished rather than a matted black. Anyone considering buying one of these phones would be going for a certain look and authoritative feel certainly not bells and whistles - and this phones does just that job !”
