Love this phone, however,
it does not have caller ID as listed in the description. This is the sole reason that I bought this phone. It's a shame that there is no caller ID feature on this phone.
I am really surprised at the false description.

I LOVE this phone!!!!!
Received the red phone in the mail today. Was up on the wall in 5 minutes. Looks super cute in my 50's style red kitchen! I looked for a phone like this forever!! Very hard to find. We had a phone exactly like this when I was a kid in the 60's. It is very good quality and is heavy like the one we had. The ring sounds just like the old telephone ring and can be set to soft or loud. I like it on loud. The reception sound quality is exceptional. I absolutely LOVE everything about this phone!! Worth every penny. Thanks VCS!!!!!

I remodeled my kitchen and added the red phone as I'm a red freak. I laughingly refer to it as my hotline. Phone fits perfectly on wall has very nice features yet still has that retro look. Nice ring tone and hand receiver has a nice weight. Great fun as I answer "hotline"

Just like Grandma's Kitchen Phone
My husband and I were having great difficulty finding a wall phone we liked for our kitchen. Heck! We were having difficulty finding a wall phone! When I saw this one, I was really excited because it looked like what we wanted, and after reading the reviews, I was pretty sure it would do the trick.
When it arrived, I installed it immediately and called my son's cell phone. Worked perfectly! And when he called me back, we could say the phone was a complete success! It has some weight to it, the hand piece is solid and good-sized, and the sound quality is exceptional. Too bad all we generally get on it is advertisers, but that's a different tale.
Thank you, Vermont Country Store. This is definitely a product to enjoy!

Sound Quality is not good
I love the looks of the phone and the color but the sound is not good and it is difficult to hear what people are saying. The phone has a '50's look and also '50's technology. I would never recommend it to anyone and would never buy it again.

Splash of vintage color for new black/white/grey kitchen
I was looking for a red wall phone to splash some color in my new black/white/grey kitchen, and despairing of finding it, when I found this vintage-looking wall phone in your most recent catalog and ordered it. It fits the bill perfectly and I love the '60's ring, which was an unexpected delight.

We finally found a phone that hangs well on the wall. I love the retro style and it works very well with good voice sound. It's well made and it is made in the USA!

The Search is Over!
We live in a home built in 1934. It had a wall phone in the kitchen which finally failed. Over the last couple of years, we have been frustrated by an inability to replace it . Your catalogue recently arrived and I took a moment to flip through the pages. There it was - exactly what I had been searching to find - a black wall phone!
We love it - and are much appreciative that you carry these hard to find items.
