      Nice Product

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I was so excited to get this phone as my kitchen is all 1950's. The phone was easy to install, you just plug it into the wall phone jack. The ear piece is weighted just like the original ones. The body is made of thick plastic. You push the coin return to redial. The coin slot works and rings just like the orginal ones. The phone comes with a key so that you can open up the area where the coins drop. Makes a nice bank. It also comes with a long cord and a wall plug for the jack. The sound is very clear. You can set the phone to ring on off, low, med or high and pulse or tone. This really is a nice phone and a great conversation piece. Best Buy has the lowest price. I order the phone with standard delivery and they told me that delivery would be in 10 days. HOWEVER I got my phone in 2 days. I'm very pleased.

      Fun item for a game room

      Was exactly what I was looking for, not an terribly expensive model just thought it was more metal than plastic but it's mostly plastic. Handset sounds clear and is comfortable to talk on, however dialing is tough if room is very dim, because the numbers are only recessed into the buttons. I took a fine point sharpie to color in the numbers on the buttons so you can see them better. Keeps all my pocket change too when I come home I just dump it in there and the bell dings with each coin, fun little bank and clear phone.

      Great Retro Phone for a Beginner

      My partner and I were quite pleased with this telephone, mounting was a bit tricky but my partner had a level and mounted it perfectly, first try! I didn't realize this phone is also a bank, when you put the coins in they ding beautifully, just like the pay phones of yesteryear! Do yourself a favor and purchase this telephone...

      cool retro phone

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I've been pricing this phone for a long time and finally caught a good sale. No problem with set up, sounds good, rings nice. Only problem I had was trying to get the money out, the lock was very hard to open, I thought I was going to break it. Overall it was worth the wait.

      Fun phone

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      This was a great buy. This phone works great and is a great conversation piece. My kids like to drop coins in to hear the bell and the push dial is more up to their speed technologically speaking. This is also full size and not a small replica so it makes a big impression visually.

      OK for what it is

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Overall I was happy with it, though I was hoping for $100 it would be more metal than plastic, I just wanted it to be more solid than it was. The cord is hardwired to the handset, so if you don't want the 10' cord it comes with, you are stuck.

      I Love My Phone


      I get so much pleasure when I look at my phone. I read complaints about the phone being made out of plastic but I was pleased that it is very well made and the plastic is thick. The cord is heavy and the receiver is strudy. It is just too cute and I get a lot of compliments.
