The history behind the design
This telephone was the final version of the 746 and was released in this format when STD dialing became widespread throughout the UK. In circulation from the 1970s, this telephone was the GPO's standard rental instrument until the privatisation of the telephone network when the new generation of push-button telephones were introduced.

Reviews & Customer Q&A

Rated 3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ghosts in the machine Loved this phone, got the rotary version, was delighted. Until I used it. There was terrible clicking on the line and other voices in the background...and an awful echo too. I would have paid twice the price for a phone like this if it actually worked. All round a huge disappointment and thank you to QVC for footing the bill to return this clearly faulty item. October 31, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Quality Control could be better Nice styling, heavy quality but operating instructions with phone totally inadequate. Only switches on underside of phone were 'ringer' and 'volume' no mention of tone/pulse which has to be selected to obtain secondary menus for example telephone banking, shopping when options have to be chosen. It took me many hours to work out what was wrong, answer switch the 'volume' to select pulse or tone. Otherwise would have given five stars. July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by always wanted one I love tis phone always wanted one and here it is a good price too I love the old style ring tone as well I am of the age when we had a cream one. then most film stars seemed to have one.its well made heavy hand set just like he old ones. I bought the push button but the dial one seems to be just as good I wanted one in red as that was the colour I had always wanted. thanks qvc its my favourite bed room phone my friends love it too February 05, 2014
