    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.

    The only real complaint I have about this is the awkward way the 4 position switch operates. Otherwise it works better than advertised.

        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!

              Comments about this product:

              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.

                                      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.

The attention to the details are astounding. Bluetooth connection works flawlessly. It pairs perfectly with the Star Trek Original Series Phaser.

                                                    I love this communicator. I have several of the old 'toy' communicators but this one is the best. 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.

                                                          Amazing recreation of the Star Trek "Alpha" communicator. This is the comm I've been waiting for since I was a kid in the 70's constructing my own from balsa wood. The Wand Company hit a home run with this (as they did previously with their phaser remote)!!!

                                                            The looks very authentic even the moray spins which I was hoping they would add that in, it makes it look very accurate just like the real TV prop. The sound could be louder but it's enough to hear it, the speaker is after all very small. Now unfortunately I don't have a cell bluetooth phone or a cell ever which is hard to believe but it's time to think about it so I can make it work as it was designed to use and see how it works. Although I do use the automated functions of the voices in the phone to make one feel your talking to the crew of the enterprise, they have a a lot of premade phrases to play with that's fun so until I get a Bluetooth phone one day, I am very pleased with the product so far, although now I wish there were more lines and phrases to play with once you get to know the sequence of using the ones included.

                                                                Excellent piece for my collection!! A piece that will make my friends jealous!! The plastic box is a waste of money, because I might never put it back in the case ever. The money could have been use to improve the product, like the sound of a phaser!!! Loving it, but had to wait 7 months for it!!!!!!
