I had a nokia 2190 back in the day. Same phone as this:

quality phone for the time.

I will try to find a pic of the Motorola my family shared circa 1993. It looked like a purse and it was huge. The handset was wired into the bag thing and looked like a normal phone when you picked it up.

I had the flip phone, was my first mobile!! Hardly used it as the calls were so expensive and I wasn't working at the time!! That other phone is a monster!!
My old boss had one the phones that looked like a car battery (and weighed as much) with a handset on the top!! Anyone got any pics of those?

@Bammers, that is pretty much what that second phone is, just cleverly disguised in a pretty leather bag.

looks similar, but the one I remember seemed a squarer thing, with literally just a handset on the top! Maybre its because it has that bag round it?

Hi, has anyone got any old phones (analogues would be great) sitting about in drawers and up in attics? If so, tell me about them. When you got it, did you like it, does it still power up etc. Also, i would like to gather a photo album of old phones, so if you have pictures please send them to my email address.
Thanks.

Great phone (allthough i think it is the 'i' version). At the time it was the biggest selling digital phone.

Hi. New member here. I am a keen collector of mobile phones, located in Australia.
Mostly collect analogue AMPS models, but have some GSM phones too.
I see this forum topic is pretty old, but anyway.....
I have several 1980's vintage mobiles.
Here is a photo of one of my oldest car phones, from 1984, AT&T model 1200.
Still powers up & works fine, which is pretty cool.

So now i have to work out how to add photos to this forum ??????
