Comments about this product:

The big problem is, the volume is too low to use it as a phone handset in any setting but total silence, meaning it's impractical as anything but a pretty toy on display.

Sitting on the display mount, it turns it self on several times a day, decides it needs charging, fires up the charger and sucks up juice for awhile. Why? It's off, I unpaired it from the iPhone … how is it possibly using that much power? A friend has one and says his does the same thing, so I didn't get a lemon.

In order to use it as a phone, I have to turn it on, turn on the iPhone's bluetooth, pair them, and change the iPhone ring tone to the communicator chirp, then reverse the process when I'm done. That's *way* too much effort for routine use. If I leave it paired, *any* sound the iPhone tries to make comes out of the communicator instead! And it keeps turning itself on ...

              This beats the Master Replicas version, hands down...AND....for a lot less money. I use it at home and out in town. The construction is great and it works as advertised.I don't know if this was an intended feature or not, but when I turn it off and put it back on the magnetic cradle, it turns itself back ON if my phone is still on. Overall, a great product for any Star Trek fan and goes well with their Phaser. I can't wait to hear when they might be thinking about doing a TRICORDER!

                I received my communicator last night and it is a thing of beauty. Having grown up with the original series, this was on my bucket list for a very very long time and it was worth the wait. Even my kids, who have never even seen TOS, thought the communicator was extremely cool! What amazes me the most is how functional it is as a mobile device when paired with my iPhone. Well done Wand Company!!!!!! Now if only you can perfect the Transporter............

                  Comments about this product:

                  I've been a Trekkie since the early 70's (born in '66 so couldn't watch it until syndication). I've been dreaming about true Trek replica devices (not toys per se) most of my life, and we are seeing them come out now.

                  Devices built as closely as possible to resemble the actual devices (like the Communicator, Phaser 1 and 2, Tricorder, etc.) Not cheaply built, money-grab, toys, but high-quality devices designed and built with exacting detail.

                  This is a fine effort if not perfect. Spot on shape, weight, materials, and build quality. The beauty of the device raises expectations to the extent, the feature-set falls a little short. It's not poor or bad, but it's not a true phone or "stand alone" device (Bluetooth required with your existing phone for voice communications, and Siri is not really Trek). That said - I'm nitpicking, too.

                  But...there is something very special about hearing the "beep, beep" from your Communicator and knowing when you flip it open - you're actually talking to someone on the other end...regardless of the bluetooth requirement. You are using a WORKING COMMUNICATOR! Fascinating...

                  If you are a TOS Trekkie (for sure) and you've been wondering if this is worth the investment? Stop reading this and order it. Display it proudly, and enjoy all the features, even if they aren't quite canon! LLAP.

                    Awesome, awesome realization of a working prop. The bluetooth communication with my iPhone works great. The appearance is a perfect match to the original. The built-in sound effects are great.

                    I have two beefs: It's a little hard to do the classic "flip" to open the device, and it has a voice of its own that, for no good reason, says, "Communication terminated" at the start of a phone call. Next version should have that voice be optional and/or fix this particular quirk.

                    I love this gizmo. Alas, 90% of my comms come from my wife and son, who always just text me. Outgoing dialing either uses voice command (doesn't work well for me, but that's Apple's fault), or the keypad on the phone (which kind of ruins the effect).

                    Still, too cool not to have. I am happy with this purchase at this price.

                        Since my very first flip phone back in the late 90's, I've said that if anyone ever comes out with a Star Trek Communicator cell phone, I'm going to buy it. Seeing as how a standalone Communicator phone is unlikely, this Bluetooth Communicator is as close as I am ever going to get, and it's a dream come true. Its build is solid and beautiful, the sound quality both making calls and receiving is very good, both inside and outdoors. Anyone with volume issues on the speakerphone needs to turn the volume up on the Communicator and your cell phone and then you can hear the person your talking to loud and clear. It's accurate, fun, imaginative and nerdy. I love it. You will too.

                        Very cool communicator. Feels just like what I imagine the original felt like. Lacks a volume control for the included voices, though. Only issue that I could find. Everything else about it is AWESOME! Will go so well with the TOS Phaser I already have! COSPLAY, here I come!

                              Great reproduction, construction and quality. Operation with blue tooth is almost flawless. Sometimes while using the blue tooth feature, the person I am talking to no longer hears me after talking for some time, even though I can hear them fine. At that point I have to call them back. Doesn't happen often but it does happen. I would still recommend this to any Star Trek fan.

                                  I love it, I love it, I love it. Coworkers love it. But I won't let them touch it. It is going to be a hit when I go to see "Star Trek Beyond" We have a small crew that will be dressing up to go see the movies. We are going to have a blast!

                                        This replica is absolutely beautiful. Perfect in every way. I love it. works perfectly, sounds good chirps when you answer a call and end call by closing the flap. voice command works great through it.

                                            Have been looking forward to this product since I was a kid. Took a while to be built but it's really functional and is an exact replica. Very happy.

                                                      Yes, it really is as cool as everyone is describing. The small number of negative comments written here, in my opinion, are more reflective of pilot error and personal preferences than any flaws in the device.

                                                      Once you're all set up and have changed the ring tone on your phone, it does exactly what you want it to do: It beeps, you flip it open, you talk and then you flip it closed.

                                                      Making an outgoing call isn't quite up to Federation standards in terms of the voice interface, but once Apple (or to whomever your allegiance is) improves their side, all will be right with the world.

                                                          This is better than the master replicas Communicator in my opinion. it's easy to use, accurate to the original and a great display piece. I absolutely love it. I really hope they come out with a tricorder as well.

                                                              The build and design of the unit are excellent. The weight is good for this piece as it gives the proper appeal as not being a toy. Would like to have seen a walkie talkie feature built in to communicate with other devices similar to handheld hunting radios.

It works excellent as a speaker phone. If I had one complaint is the quality of the speaker and its lack of volume. Fix that and it would be perfect.
