“Go where you wanna go, call when you wanna call!” Sing it with me!
Who was driving the boat?
he was calling up the manufacturer to mail him a manual since the boat didn’t come with one….
Do this be one of dem free Obama phones? I needs to be gettin’ me one.
Yep, and 23 years from now our cell phones will look just as outdated, I don’t get this “let’s make fun of old tech by comparing it to today’s tech”. It was those “big things” that made the “little things” possible
Holy crap, I actually had one of those. That was my first “cell phone”. Brings back a lot of memories, mostly bad memories…
Only 799…after you save 350.
If I had that battery purse for my T-bolt, I’ll bet I could make it past four hours without a recharge.
The next big thing is already here?
lol, comments crack me up
lol….comment s crack me up
nice mustache!! Matches nicely with the phone
Wow, $799 back then might as well have been a million bucks!
Verizon is announcing this next week as the Motorola Droid BRIK.
I sure hope Verizon doesn’t pass on this one!!
Can we get an AOKP port please?
My mom used to have a ridiculously big Radio Shack phone like that back in 1995, when she was doing a weekend paper route for extra Christmas cash. It came with a carry bag, though, which had separate compartments for the cellular radio and the battery (the biggest part of the phone), with a magnetic thing on the outside of the bag to clip the corded handset on.
Can it be rooted?
Still have this phone, didn’t want to lose my unlimited data
I’ll wait for the “developer edition”. =p
$799?? After $340 savings? And people are bitchin about a $200 upgrade cost…..
That was 23 years ago bro. Times change.
With inflation, that comes to $1484.46…
And just for reference, the $199 upgrade cost would have been $107.11 in 1989.
I had one of those (I also had a moto 10 channel head end with a harris transmitter) was it a mittsubishi or an audiovox? Don’t remember…..still wish I had my Moto brick phone like the one Michael Dougals used on the beach watching the sun come up in the movie Wall Street, I loved that phone.
I wonder if this thing actually go signal anywhere?
You’d be surprised how much better voice quality we got back then.
All month battery life!
That’s awesome!! It would surprise you how many bag phones I sold in 2008 that were not all that much smaller.
Interesting that the price of a phone is about the same price after all these years.
Capabilities aren’t though. Back then? No screen. No data. No texting. No cameras. No Bluetooth. No call waiting. You could make a phone call, and you could receive a phone call. And… yeah, that was it.
I don’t know what is more amazing…that phone or the fact that Radio Shack is still in business!
Business is slow today huh lol
Don’t make them like that anymore. Good times!!!
I just upgraded from that. It was a great phone.
and people still complain about the prices for current phones … just be happy your money isn’t going towards bricks !
I had one of these that would only connect to the cigarette light in the car.
I think it has a bigger battery than my MAXX!
I think it has a bigger battery than my ‘vette!
Still better than an iPhone!
Wow that makes my Motorola Razr look kick ass!!
Look how far we’ve come.
Isn’t capitalism and the profit motive great?
I wonder what coverage and speeds were at that time? lol
Radio Shack Nexus!
Does this support Tethering at .00001kbs?
Im feeling old.
Still a better map than iOS Maps.
I love the top comment for that video…
Ya! Save $340 TAKE MY MONEY!
Activated this through Pacific Bell, so I could “reach out and touch someone.”
hell, bet it gets ICS before the bionic
LOL…you seriously just made me choke on my coffee! :p
You sir win the comment of the week. Tell him what’s he’s won Bob!
WTF is Radio Shack
Darnit, I’m only the 99th one to upvote this. So much win
If I could get 4G at work I would carry around a box that big.
OMG I remember when those first came out. The “Brick” was the in thing back then. Just after your TV remote control was your kids. Thanks for reminding me how old I am
The Motorola brick was my first cellular phone. Frankly the digital coverage is just now getting to the point where it’s as reliable as the old analog networks.
Most excellent and transportable. Two people required. The word “carrier” gets a completely new meaning! (and I love the bubbly Radio Shack logo)
Haha…My dad had one of those huge Motorola bag phones. It looked like a purse.
It probably was a purse and he told you it was a phone. Did the color of his purse match his high heels, er, work boots?
I still have mine. Sitting my my upgrade to see what’s around the corner because that’s what everyone keeps telling me to do.
Bet it received Jelly Bean before the Nexus.
Before the Bionic gets ICS you mean!
lol Will it ever?!
