It is so appropriate that the cell phone era began in 1983, the year my daughter was born. I have observed the evolution and depended on her for cell phone instructions and insight. I hope her generation appreciates the power at their fingertips.

Hahaha! It's a Zack Morris phone!
OMG. I still remember using one of those. Had to carry it around in a special case - but it was a good arm workout lifting the thing to your ear and trying to actually hear anything.
I'm still using the 1983 model. I have tens of thousands in free phone upgrades at my disposal, but I'm waiting for the right time to buy.
Is your cell phone arm longer than the other one?
Thank you so much for posting this. I have a really hard time with choosing the right mobile phone for myself. This helped a bit.
After all this they still can't/won't design one for grandad - that's me- who only wants to have a phone took keep in the glovebox in case the car breaks down.And a phone with a keypad that is similar to the line phones.
The model pictured above doubles as a workout weight.. weren't we in better shape then?
Its sad how many of those I have owned. Money down the drain...
I remember when those kinds of phones were high tech devices.
