I have those exact crimpers, actually. They'll work for molex pins, but not the best. For fan pins, I have to crimp in three steps - use one of the larger slots to bend the metal tabs inward on the pins, a smaller slot to finish bending them inwards, then the flat spot to actually crunch the flaps down tight enough that the wire won't pull out. You get fast at it, but it's not idea.

Edit: And I honestly can't figure out you'd work with phone cords with these things. Regular 10-20 gauge wiring, and computers pins, yes. Phone and network cabling, no.

Meh I just use a combo of needle nose plyers and a pair of forceps with a tiny dab of solder.

Never had one come loose yet.
