    Ok, so we're all talking about how beautiful the latest phones are, but have we ever gotten as far as deciding on the ugliest one? I'll set up a little competition: I'll give $500 CPF to the person who can report the most hidious looking phone ever known to man. I don't care how old it is, I just want to know how bad they can really get. Let the battle commence!

    Guess I'll start with that old gray Motorola, the one that kind of (DUH!) looks like an old field radio. The HUGE main part, and the tiny, flimsy flip, that so many broke or broke off. And don't forget that long black plastic (licorice) antenna. I just saw Mercury Rising (again) and Bruce Willis was using one in the movie.

    On a side note, if anyone saw the movie Zoolander, the phone that Will Ferrell was using was hysterical; it was roughly the size of a postage stamp. I've seen little phone charms like that in those gumball machines.

    Anyone remember the old bag cell phones?

    I remember a job I had as a security guard back in the day. They wanted us to carry around one of these things. Only added about 20 pounds and was rather bulky if you needed to run after someone.

    Had those too.

    The phone was for folks on campus to call us if they needed to. The radio was for contacting dispatch. I tried to explain the concept of phone patching with two way radios, but the powers that be could not understand it.

    Somehow I don't think we're going to get any more results so Bilder, your the winner! Here's your $500 CPF. Can a mod please close this thread?
