Crosley CR55 Wall Phone in Brushed Chrome
It does the job
This phone does exactly what I wanted it to do. I was so tired of having flimsy wall phones. Everytime someone closed the sliding door in the kitchen my old phone's receiver fell to the floor because of it's lightweight and poor construction. And I was forever dropping the old phone because newer phones just don't fit to your hand like the retro phones do. I looked at modern phones in the stores but all seemed to be constructed the same way. This retro phone looks great and works great. I would give it another star if it could incorporate caller id into the design.

Modern Vintage Fun
I love the look and feel of this phone. The only surprise is that it isn't "brushed" chrome. It's a very shiny chrome! The look, however, sure beats the ugly black, white or beige "common" wall phones that are still lingering around out there. It has a "vintage" type ring and voices sound a bit "vintage" through it as well........but not hard to understand. My designer friends love it. I would buy it again.

Looks nice but
I love how this phone looks on the wall and I like the sound of the ring. However, it is kind of awkward to hold on your shoulder (near impossible) and the dial is different than a regular wall phone the number 1 is way over on the side. I would probably buy again but just wish it was more user friendly

Best Purchase Ever!
This wall phone is so unique. We always get many compliments on how nice it matches the stainless appliances! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a classy wall phone! The ring is great, too!
