    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.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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!)

    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...
