This is the best phone ever! This phone was a hit in our salon. I needed a receiver that would stay in its cradle. The trimline kept being dropped because stylists were generally in a hurry to get back to their clients. The retro receiver is of substantial weight & cannot slide out of place. The ringtone is pleasant, yet can be heard above the noise of the blowdryers.
A perfect phone for a small space. Whats great about it is: If you want JUST A PHONE no extra do-dads and have limited wall space the crosley wall phone is for you. The use of this product: I now have this phone in my garage. Its perfect! How many times are you going into the garage and you hear the phone ringing. Its happened to me several times. I just pick up the receiver to answer the call. Its easier for me .
Love my Retro Wall Phone. I needed a nice-looking replacement wall phone in my kitchen that did not need an electrical outlet. This one is stylish and well-built. I had a discolored plastic wall plate and sprayed it black to match the phone. It looks great on the wall and now I have a phone I can grab when I'm cooking and don't have time to search for my cordless. I was disappointed to see that I have to take the phone off the wall to turn the ringer on or off. For now, we left it on because we love the old fashioned ring tone!

Dismayed with the $130 price tag for the radio receiver he promised to buy for his son’s birthday, Crosley decided to make his own. Upon successfully building a working set for only $35, Crosley was quick to spot the mass market potential.
It was a simple idea - design a fully functioning radio, meticulously craft each unit with obsessive detail and precise accuracy, and of course add a measure of consideration for the wallet.
This simple idea led Crosley Radio to become the world’s largest radio manufacturer while Powel Crosley became known as ‘The Henry Ford of Radio.’ His relentless fascination with mechanical devices, coupled with his intense desire for success, sent Crosley’s career soaring.
