I found these retro-styled handsets on close out at Toys ‘R’ Us for $9.99 and picked one up.
For my birthday in 2011 I got the bluetooth version of this same phone. This brand (“Call Me”) simply plugs in to your phone the same as any other headphone/mic headset. That means no configuration required. Other than the volume slider on the phone’s handset, there’s not a lot to it. Just plug it in and talk away.
I actually like the added realism of having a phone cord. Those of you who never had a phone whip out of your hands as you were walking away from the handset have no idea idea…
