I was in need of a new land line phone recently. I had an avocado green trimstyle phone for a couple of years, but recently it stopped ringing. I had long planned to replace it with another phone and red was the color I craved. A quick look online and I settled upon the SCI-25003 Standard 1 Line Des Phone in Red. So far I have no complaints. It feels sturdy, the button action is nice and the ring. Ahhhh, the the ring, it is just what the doctor ordered. So if you need a home phone, think red and think the SCI-25003.
