I have an 025 Motorola 2900 (the older version) bag phone on its way to me that a friend no longer requires. It had a new battery about 18 months ago, and has probably had fairly little use in that time, so should be working well.

Being 025, this is pretty much worthless as it will be unusable by mid-2007.

Swap for WHY (anything Geeky really), or complete giveaway if you can tell me why I should, and what you will do with it (I want it to go to someone who will actually use it)

PM me if interested...

oh the memories - I loved those things - espically the latest ones where we made a few mods on them and turned them into a handsfree operation - (stripped the parts from a car kit) with mic and everything real portable phone back then with 3 watts.

We sold hundreds of them to contractors and was good money back then selling phones.

If I had one I would mount it in the garage

I'd probably use it as a weapon (think as a club, its almost big enough).

as recently as about 2.5 years ago we were selling these for $450 each (even telling every buyer the network was being pulled in 2006). Couldnt get enough to satisfy demand.

If its in good physical condition Telecom Mobile has a musuem of old phones in Wellington if you would like to donate it to that cause. PM me for details if you are interested.

I still have the 1987 analogue mobile release phone, the uniden 2700. Scary. Lovely Lead acid battery pack it had,


If you find no good home for it I'll add it to my museum, I wonder if Telecom in wellington had one of the unidens in their museum? if not i'd happily donate my uniden and old Trunk unit if it benefits many.

Hi Tony

I work with teachers and students in technology and ICT. It would be great to be able to show them a bag phone - especially a working one. If you're giving it away I could make good use of it.  Cheers.  John
