easier to hold when talking for long periods of time
T R on Jan 17, 2019
Sometimes it's so hard to hear the other person, I'm hoping that going back to a "regular" handset will make business phone calls easier to hear!

I am not comfortable with the phone that I own, I'm always afraid that I'm going to drop it and think that this would help. I can cradle this near my ear.
Joy V on Jun 14, 2018
Husband has hard time hearing on cell phone.
Shirley G on Jun 9, 2018
I own and use a retro phone handset already. My friend saw my handset and told me she wanted one too, so I've ordered one for her. I can hear and I can be heard more clearly when I use the retro phone hand set. My friend tried my handset and she agreed with me.

One reason only, it's a novelty! And I like items that is different and unique.
Pam L on May 30, 2018
My husband works via phone. Connections with ambient noise, conference calls, person speaking is not close enough to their devise, these all make hearing what is said very hard to hear. I hope this will help his reception. If not...I will send it back.
Sandra M on May 30, 2018

The H on Dec 29, 2018
Is this for all cell phones?
calvin m on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The Retro Phone Handset can be used with any cell phone that has a 3.5mm headphone jack. We hope this information will be of help to you.
Can this handset be used with a regular house phone (wireless)? I have a Panasonic model #KX-TGA401 and it has an input jack on the side with a picture of a regular headphone w/microphone on it.
A shopper on Dec 30, 2017
Is this plug in a small round connection or flat?
Sharon H on Dec 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It is a round jack. We hope this information will be of help to you.
Is there a list of phone models or specific carriers that this does/does not work with?
Cathy W on Nov 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. As long as your smartphone has the standard (3.5mm) headphone jack, this will work. We hope this information will be of help to you.

Thank you,
Miles KImball
Can the cord be removed so a longer one could be used instead?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The cord is permanent in the phone and can not be changed. We hope this information will be of help to you.
The description says it reduces radiation. Is this a hollow tube headset?
Sara T on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I love it because you don't have to hold your cell up to your face which I think gives off radiation using the phone receiver is much better it does not give anything off outs like a regular phone I think you can hear better with it it also has an on an off switch which is nice I bought one for myself and my husband he likes it a lot better he does a lot of talking and the cell will click off sometimes from holding it near your. Ear but this won't you don't have to put your. Phone to your ear the cell phone I actually love it would recommend it for people with cell phones
why can't I hear on it?
Karen M on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Volume must be at a hearable level on both the handset and the cell phone. I would start by adjusting both the cell phone and handset at 3/4 volume and then having someone speak to you on a call - be sure to hold the hand set away from your ear at first moving it closer to your ear slowly until you hear the caller (so as not to hurt your hearing).

Be sure to press the hand set button "hang up" button several times to ensure it's not sticking and disrupting the volume.

If both of these tricks fail, you may have a defective handset.
will this work with the UMX patriot android phone? If so, where is the jack on the phone.
A shopper on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not familiar with your specific phone, but virtually all cell phones have a universal jack on them. Look for a small round opening on any of the thin edges of your phone. The jack might be universal, the location of it is an entirely different story. If you have the user manual for your phone, it should provide info on the jack. Sorry I couldn't provide a definitive answer for your phone.
It has a red button on the handset which seems to me that it should light up for some reason. What is the purpose of the red button?
Nancy B on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. There are two buttons underneath the earpiece. The one that can’t be pushed in doesn’t serve any purpose. The other button (the one that you can press in) can be pressed to answer the phone. There is a volume control, but it is located on the side of the phone. It is more of a piece you slide up and down, rather than a button. We hope this information will be of help to you.
Does the red button on the handset light up?
Nancy B on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't light up. I got mine about a week ago and I just checked to make sure. Hope this helps with your decision.
