"I love these phones. Actually, I love the entire selection of phones you offer, but this desk phone in black is perfect. These phones were the only phones available during my youth, so I have an affinity for them. I find them easier to talk on than cell phones or the current cordless phones of today. There's something about walking around the house carrying the phone base in one hand and the receiver resting on my shoulder and having a conversation that is comforting to me."
