my dad had that one... and paid that for it too! I remember it... and my grandpa had the first one.. it was like a foot long with a 7 inch antenna, and it was gray like the box computers used to be. Oh man, technology...

How can I identify with a product where the stand for the phone costs the same as another battery? Is the stand made out of the dreams of orphans?

It`s funny to think that some of us actually used one of these! The per-minute charges were horrendous if I remember correctly!

Wow, $1500 for a phone? In 1988 the average income was about $19k a year.

To put it in perspective, that would be like paying $3300 for a phone now...

My uncle had one. I stubbed my toe on it once when he was drunk & passed out on the floor with it. True story.

Yes thank you cell phone..because of you no one talks to strangers when they`re idle (bus, online), people are updating their fb/twitter profiles in class or at work, the number of call related accidents has skyrocketed, and no matter where I am, somebody can always get a hold of me. (drat mom leave me alone!)

Notice how battery is plural. I don`t think I have ever seen a cell phone that needs more than one battery. LOL!

Ah, memories! Back then Radio Shack was pretty much the only place to get something like this. Anyone else here old enough to remember bag phones and actual static when you were going through a bad cell instead of the "underwater" sound and cutting in and out? $2 per minute was super-cheap back then and counted as soon as you hit the send button, answer or no.
How about radio phones where you had to give them your radio ID?

I loved those!

It was the height of cool to be seen talking on one. They sold fake ones that didn`t even work but looked real. Posers would walk abound with them pretending to talk to someone.

Bahaha my Dad used to have a phone like this!! It was a little smaller- a bit of a later model.

It was amazing- NO phone has ever had better reception than that little beauty. We used to call it his G.I.Joe phone

Well, at that time "fits in your briefcase" was a significant step forward from the previous "fits in your trunk" versions.

My family used to have a brick phone. The stupid things are drating heavy, but minutes were so damn expensive, one didn`t want to stay on it too long anyway. I guess it all balanced out.
