    Yes kids this were the first "mobile"phones, a feature he didnt mention is you could microwave your food on the go with it and recreate a chernobyl nuclear meltdown if the battery exploded, also you can use it as a large hadron collider that could potentially cause a rift in time and space.

    I have my parents old Star TAC in my basement and I think it has a larger battery pack. It’s bulkier and sticks out of the phone more. There is also a dent in it, probably from me and my brothers using it as a play phone. We still have the original box and chargers too! One for home and the car.

    I think when I was really young my family actually had two old MicroTACs in our house. No idea why we had them given that it was the mid to late 2000s and the phone was from 1989, but now I kinda wish we still have them.

    The Centel logo on the DynaTAC is the name of the telephone company/network that originally sold that handset. Centel (originally Central Telephone) was a regional telephone company in the US, they ended up becoming part of Sprint, and the landline business sold off multiple times

    When I was 12 I had the 2006 nokia with a builtin flashlight in blue/gray. It was the smaller one where the keypad and earpiece overlay was the same silicone rubber material and the rest of the phone was hard plastic. I remember it was when rompe was out and I would sit in the car flashing the light to the beat of the song! The ringtone composer was always fun to come up with your own creations. I think mine had snake and some kind of brick game I can't remember. oh good times!

    That Motorola Brick it’s called was originally sold for 1000$ and back in 1989 it was a lot of money I think it’s a lot more now anyways that phone was solid and name Brick was given to it for a reason that it was unbreakable, I was able to buy Panasonic phone in yearly 90’s and we ll had pagers then. And I think my second phone was Motorola StarTek flip phone it was great phone.
