    The phone that Jack Nicholson used in "Something's Gotta Give" is a
    Nokia 8910, a GSM phone made for use outside the USA, but which
    probably works AOK here too. Awsome! Car Kit is awsome too!

    Re: FOUND: cellphone from "Something's Gotta Give"

    Nokia 8910 will not work in North America, but if you like this design so
    much, you might want to get Nokia 8890, which will work here. It's been
    discontinued, but you can still buy a new or used one on the web. I used to
    have it, and it was really an awesome handset. The only reason I got rid of
    it was because it didn't have a WAP browser.

    It will work in the US if the phone is tri-band. Most large US cities now
    have GSM 1900 coverage.

    8910 is 900/1800 only.

    8890 is similar but not same.
