Retro cell phone

I'd love to see someone make a retro cell phone. I want to be able to pull my sim card out of my Blackjack and put it into a modern Motorola brick phone. Just for nostalgia sake, I'd also like to see Nokia re-introduce the 5165, those were fantastic. Green screens and button lights, those awesome faceplates that could be switched quickly and cheaply, they were just awesome!

Holy crap! My prayers = answered

Had one of the originals (and a bag phone too).

They were huge, but they worked better than today's micro-models.

And they could double as a weapon! :AH-HA_wink:

My mom had a brick phone that she refused to give up for the longest time. When my dad was working asa charter bus driver, his boss had a bag phone that usually stayed in one of the buses. I was in awe of it the first time I saw it (keep in mine I was like 10) because it was so freaking cool. It looked like a regular old bag, but when you opened it up, BAM! it was a phone. And it weighed a ton.

Camino, if you still have that bag phone, it may be worth a few bucks.

Motelona FTW! :D Seriously though, if you have T-Mobile (i.e. 1900 MHz PCS service, AT&T is mostly only 850MHz) you could also find a old Nokia 5190 that would accept a SIM and took all the colored faceplates. I had one from '00-'04, it was a great phone. I 'donated' mine away back then, i'm sure they sell for almost nothing on eBay anymore.

My mom's first cell phone was a Motorola MicroTAC, and that's always been my favorite design. My aunt still has one that she uses.
