Cell phone evolution is a fairy tale for grownups.  These phones are all part of God's plan!

My dad had one with a curly cord  that was hard-wired into his truck and he looked like an 80's movie president every time he made a call.

My dad had a massive cell phone in the 80s and early 90s.  It rarely worked and was the size of a large brick.  A few years later phones were startac sized... and they still had shitty reception.  Anyone remember when T9 and texting became a thing?  GAME CHANGER

I miss that fat phone. Not only can you use it for calls, it was a great weapon & paper weight...

Did everyone have those Nokia brick phones? Snake was the greatest cell phone game of all time.
