The other day I went to my front porch and there was this box, it was the Good Call Bluetooth Handset. An early Father’s Day gift from the fine folks at Collective Bias and GoFusion. This is a nice gift for Dad because it can allow Dad to charge his iPhone but still make calls without having to be tethered to the charger. Also as a Dad with small children it is much easier for them to understand that Daddy is on the phone by showing them the handset than with a bluetooth earbud.
The handset is so sleek and fits great in your hand. The earpiece and mouthpiece are a good size and distance for easy comfortable talking. There is an on and off switch for preserving battery life. You can adjust the call volume and even mute a call using the handset.
I was concerned that the base would be fitted to the iPhone and not allow room for a case. So many accessories for the iPhone do not take into consideration the use of a protective case on the device. The dock on the Good Call is extra wide and thick to accomodate cases on the iPhone. My wife’s iPhone fit on the dock easily with her protective case. My case is a little different in that the bottom has a space for a tripod attachment and so the only charging connector that it works with is the white cord that comes with the iPhone. But Luckily it splits in half for easy removal and so I can charge my phone on the Good Call docking station. But you can see from the image below that there is plenty of space for iPhones with cases to fit on the charging dock.
Plenty of room to fit on the dock with a protective case.
This device is both a charging station for your iPhone4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G. The handset is bluetooth and you can use it to take calls, make calls, use Siri and more. The charging connector on the dock is also a little longer to allow for iPhones that have cases.
The handset is stylish and very modern looking. It also sounds great when using it with the iPhone. I made quite a few calls with it and the sound was excellent.
Pairing the iPhone and the Good Call was simple and easy to do. I paired my phone and then made a bunch of phone calls with the handset alone, using Siri, using redial and changing the volume of the call. Very nice features to have on the handset units.
The docking station comes with a micro USB cord that can be connected directly to your computer to allow for charging as well as syncing with iTunes. I connected my Good Call directly to the computer because that is the best place that works for our family, plus it gives us another place to attach an iOS device. The device also comes with a plug for the wall for charging independent of the computer. We can now connect an iPad and an iPhone simultaneously. I like that and I also like that the iPhone is upright so that I can see any messages that come up or any calls that come in.
Can you find the Good Call in stores? Not quite yet but very soon. The phone will be available on Tuesday through their website www.goodcallbro.com. This device is so new that I got one of the very first ones to test out and review. There will be a Good Call Twitter party on June 19th with giveaways of several Good Call units. There will actually be 2 units given away every 15 minutes during the party as well as 5 units prior to the party for people who help promote the party ahead of time! A great Kickoff to this new product. The cost for the product is $80.
