Too Bad

My second cell phone ever was a motorola bag phone back in '88. Then I switched to the brick phone when that came out and then to their first flip. Motorola has always made a rugged phone but they started to lag behind up and coming companies with newer technology and more functionality. I find this all sad. They were a huge force stuck in the past with the future quickly passing them up. Hopefully they can retool and reinvent themselves as a pioneer.

The StarTac was my favorite past phone from them. Except for the antenna breaking a lot, they were a lot of fun.

I loved the brick phone too. It's hard to imagine these days, but there was a time when they were the coolest phones around Very Happy

Yes indeed, those were the days. I loved the StarTac as well. What a fun phone. My sister bought my brick phone from me when I bought the first flip. She still has it. It's in her basement tucked away and won't sell it back to me. Evil or Very Mad

I'm with HawkeyeOC. I enjoyed the Startac, but my favorite Motorola of all time was the Startac Vader V3268. When it came out it was the smallest phone around.
