    I had one. I also had one of those car phones that came with a carrying case. They were a neat idea for the day, but totally impractical. Those ancient days of long ago were but a moment in time, and now we have phones with live video conversations. Where's my hoverboard?

    I want to buy one of these phones to give to my daughter as a gift when she gets old enough for a cell phone. At least it's better then a beeper
