Re: New-fangled mobile phone

@z10user4 

 

Quite a bit of room inside an AE 80E telephone for more batteries! I have a couple around here with a RJ11 jack in the back rather than having the hardwired cord coming out the back to a plug. Thus it could be used as the power/charging input and you wouldn't have a 7 foot cord hanging from it while "out for a walk". 

A fellow phone collector friend had something like this he took with him to flea markets and yard sales etc. When he found a phone he was interested in and asked "does it work" he would then verify their answer!

Re: New-fangled mobile phone

I can't recall where I grabbed this from, maybe on here but from somewhere. I think it is just the coolest picture. Of course it is likely not really "old" but is like it is predicting the future with lots of Star Trek like "old technology"....

The Telus offering was $10 and a device charge over 2 years. That's coming up for me at the beginning of May coinciding with probably not keeping the service.

 

 @AE_Collector : what a great pic. What are they...stewardesses??

Funny about the phone tester guy.

Or de-case the ZTE and drill a hole for the antenna and put the circuit board and battery in the phone Smiley Happy

Female Aviators in early 20th century, so many cool things going on. Of course have to have the cigarettes too.

 

I bet you could fit it in with antenae inside the case as well.

Re: New-fangled mobile phone

The ZTE device is clever and handy. It contains a SIM card which can be swapped. Although it's likely running carrier-locked and write-protected firmware (so it'll refuse to work with any other SIM) unless you deliberately purchased your own unlocked one from Alibaba.

 

I expect this sort of device will become exclusively eSIM soon, if it hasn't already. So it won't be long before your model truly earns a place next to that other phone antique.

@will13am  I did go to OCA back in the day....studied fine art. I'm out of practice but I can draw, paint...mostly watercolour but I can also use acrylic or oil paints. Pen &ink illustrations, pointilism, cartooning (darlicious) and did some printmaking. Mostly photography these days but every once in awhile I get inspired and I'll knock out a piece.20180203_130031.jpg

Good for you.  I barely have the skills to operate a writing device.  Most of the time, I can't read my own writing.  Sadly, I am not a doctor or pharmacist.  I am so happy that keyboarding rendered writing obsolete.
