I dug into my treasury (junk) storage to find out what phone that I have used and have still kept with me.
There were phones that I have used and sold or given away.
Anyway, I found this:- Motorola L2000i.
It turns 18 this year.
I remember a story one of my high school English teachers told me about when she was living in LA. she had one of those at the time (this was a few years after), and her husband was freaking out about her safety. one day, a random idiot on the street tried to rob her, and she just hit him with the phone until he passed out and then called the police. true story.I lived through that era too.
Of course, I did not owe one as it was ultra expensive and only the rich and famous used them. And the gang leaders used them too, as a last resort self defence weapon...lol
