Rated 5 out of 5 by cfc1956 Retro fun phone
I love this phone. I always wanted a old pay phone but the hardware was incompatable with our DSL. This phone looks authentic. The reciever is weighty just like the old ones. Made by the Crosley co which has wonderful reproduction phones,radios,turntables,and other fun items. I went to their website and bought two more repro phones, A princess and 1930's-1940's desk. And a reproduction radio. But I never would have thought of Crosley if JCP had not had the repro pay phone. Glad the buyers found this. I like the protection package also. Good for a year if anything malfunctions or breaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KelseasMom Nostalgic and Just FUN!
Each year I receive money from my parent's for Christmas. I try to purchase something that I will have for a long time and something that when I see it, it will always remind me of my parents. This year it was this wall phone in CHROME. I absolutely LOVE IT!
Not only is the phone usable, but it brings back memories from those care-free days and LOW prices for phone service. I also love the extra long chord on the handset so I can pace when I'm talking on the phone. Gotta get that exercise in daily, ha!
You and your family and friends will enjoy this phone. That's a guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crizz Works Better Than Any Phone I Own
I love this phone much more than I thought I would! I love the color selection - would of liked pink - but got black to look more authentic. I saw an old movie the other day that had a pay phone JUST LIKE this one except for the push buttons. I have phones in every room of my house and this one is by far the best to hear the other party on. The extra long cord allows freedom to move around while talking. I basically bought this phone because I liked the look but I find myself using it more and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CHayden Extreamly Happy Best Price Found!
I looked in so many stores for a pay phone that I could use but could not find one. I found this one online. The price at JCPenny was actually cheaper than anywhere else I had looked. The cord on this phone is extra long which is good if the power goes off and I need to move around and use the phone at the same time. I saw the quiality of Crosely was very good from other reviews so maybe I should have not purchased the addtional warrently. This purchase was one of my best and I could not be any more pleased from it.

I may be a little critical on this review mainly because I got it to use for children. I am a little concerned that with the plastic parts, the phone hangs up on, that it might get broken sooner then I want. Also we are having a little trouble with the coins getting stuck when falling into the bank. The plastic coin return was pulled out when I received so we had to take it apart to fix. We are not using it for a phone so I can't tell you how well that part works. It looks good though.
