    M StarTac

    hard to believe that i only got my first cellphone ~7 years ago (when i moved here) anyway.. just for the sentiment and my fetish for old skool stuff i would like to have a working (as it it should turn on 'n stuff) StarTac (ST7868W), a Verizon one... i know there are a few on eBay, but the best price would be free, i will pay shipping though..


    just askin'.. you never know right :}

    TIA.

    no problemo!

    i was quite impressed after all those years...i plugged it in and came right back on with the correct date and time!

    i remember back in college my roommate had one and we used to play hockey with it in the hallways and the damn thing never died...he would still get phone calls in the middle of us passing this thing around!:tounge:
