I am curious to refresh my memory on old gold mobile products.

Does anyone have or know of where I can find old ads showing the "Gold Mobile" phones sold at The Warehouse?

I'm trying to identify an old phone model - I think the last one I saw advertised. It was either Hyundai or Kyocera, but I can't find a pic of it on the net.

Have you tried  Here's one example

Gold Mobile - Motorola Profile 300
Price: $99.00


For just $99 you can get mobile with no hooks attached! Best of all a Gold Prepaid Mobile connection comes with all the features and benefits of a mobile phone without any of the contracts and fine print conditions associated with many other Prepaid connections, such as these nasty hooks - airtime expires, you must top up your airtime just to stay connected! This is definitely not the case with Gold Prepaid Mobile. Everything you need to get started is in the pack, including - one Motorola Profile 300e mobile phone, one NiMH (600 mAH) battery, charger, quick user guide, owners manual, warranty card and up to 50 minutes of airtime. Limit of 5 mobile phones per customer.

Somehow I managed to stumble onto the "same" model phone I was trying to identify, Audiovox CDM8300, however in NZ I'm sure it was being sold as a Hyundai. I had a look through, I never knew it existed. I did find one small ad, but nothing around the age I was looking.
