Don't go retro...

Comments about Retro Phone Handset:

I did read that someone had a bad experience with this, so I took a chance. Miles Kimball should just remove this item from their catalog. I must say that custormer service was WONDERFUL. I paid by PayPal, and was refunded within days. I cut the cord off and gave it to my daughter to take to the kids at the daycare center she works in. Cheaply made. Still looking for something to keep the cell phone away from my head. Some day we will find out that people are getting brain cancer from the electromagnetic waves.

Cons

  • Cheaply Made
  • Doesn't Work
  • Don't Bother
  • Remove From Catalog

Best Uses

  • Childs Toy Cut The Cord
Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Absolutely Perfect

Comments about Retro Phone Handset:

I have trouble hearing and being heard on my cell phone. This eliminates the problem! Although two of my friends have said that I sound like I'm talking from the bottom of a bucket, the rest said that they heard me quite clearly. I bought the ugly purple one because it was cheaper than the other colors and since it doesn't sit out where people can see it, the color didn't really matter so I went for cheap!

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Hear Better
  • Light Weight
  • Speech Better Heard

Cons

  • Purple Color Is Cheapest
  • Really Ugly Purple
Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

WOW!!!

Comments about Retro Phone Handset:

I use this when I do my bank statement. Or need to do something else and I need both of my hands to be free. Two things 1= I wish the hand set would ring when it is plug into your cell phone. 2= And you can not answer your phone call with the hand set either. *BUT!* You can hang up on someone with the hand set.

Pros

  • Good Voice Sound

Cons

  • Answer Button Want Work
  • Answering Button Does Not

Best Uses

  • Need Both Hands Free
  • On Cell Phone

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cool headset

Comments about Retro Phone Handset:

I really like this handset! It is fun to use, and is clear on my end and the listener's end. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and the handset works fine with it. I may need a larger purse to make it fit inside though, but other than that it is neat. I love anything retro, and I especially like the fact that I now don't need my phone at my ear. That is so unsafe. (Ex. I quit carrying it in my pocket because it caused hip pain.)I have already shared a photo of my handset on Facebook and hope others will try one for themselves. It is a nice alternative to a cell phone at your ear. I wish the red light would come on when someone is calling in. That's the only con I see with this handset. Hopefully the company will make that a working feature in the future.

Pros

  • Fun colors
  • Works With Samsung S3
Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

nice idea, not quite right

Comments about Retro Phone Handset:

I bought myself one and a friend one because we live in areas where mobile service is limited. We both have to leave the mobile phone in the window to get a signal. I though this would make it easier to talk, but with the cord being wound so tight it doesn't stretch enough to get more then a foot from the phone and I can do that with speaker phone. For me...this product is useless.

Pros

  • Old Time Feeling

Cons

  • Cord Doesn't Stretch Easy
  • Cord not long enough
  • Cord Twisted To Tight
Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
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.
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.
