    That's actually the closest thing I had to a phone for two months last fall, although mine wasn't fully assembled.

    After a while though, I got tired of my mom's complaining, so I gave in and got a Nokia.

    I have a bunch of older unused handsets. I have been tempted to yank the electronics from one and rewire it into a gutted SCR-536 if I can find one at an Army/Navy surplus.



    I'd have to download a ringtone of the theme from the movie The Longest Day for full effect.

    The Firefly? It's basically a limited dial handset. You can actually reprogram most handsets to do this. However, the idea is that you can market a relatively cheap handset with very specific preset dial numbers and no general dialing keypad. It's a good idea for those that just need a phone for emergencies and to contact only specific people.

    The SCR-536 was the name for the entire set including radio unit, crystals (you changed frequencies by swapping out crystal - 3.5kHz to 6kHz), batteries (two in the unit, one at 1.5VDC and the other at 103.5VDC) and such. The radio unit itself was known as the BC-611, was AM band, put out around 400mW for about 2 miles of range (if you were lucky) and weighed only 5 lbs. It had a retractable 1/4-wave antenna that would turn the unit on when you extracted it and turn it off when fully retracted. The batteries became hard to find after the war and manufacturing was discontinued. Many people just chucked them although some were crafty enough to convert the power feeds to use standard batteries. The crystal sets however became very popular because they could be used in other radios. I figure it wouldn't be all that hard to gut the inside of one and mount an older but still relatively modern mobile handset inside. I'd then simply wire up the speaker and mic to the headset port and create a discrete cover to hide the keypad and display. I'm undecided as to whether or not I want to keep the antenna (or even to have it act as a power switch) as it's pretty long or wire the side PTT to the Send key. These things were considered the first truly portable individually carried handie-talkie.

    Yea khuon explained it well. I've had real cellphones but have never paid for the bill. I lost a phone charger one too many times (found both of them too much later) and so parents would cancel them. Text messaging was unlimited for me once... Now I'm in ownership of this cool looking cellphone. Its quite simple really with one button for the dad and the other for the mother. The mother button is actually my grandmother. 20 other phone numbers go into the phone book. I personally have a calling time of 30 minutes so I don't use the phone except for flat tires and "I'll be home late" notifications. People can only call me if they are in my phone book which I think is unlimited time. So its nice like that. Its kind of a rip off with 30 "minutes" could be 30 calls of 1 second.

    All my siblings got one as a way for the parents to keep track of us. So far the maid/I misplaced my charger and the younger sister lost hers on vacation. Basically it was a flop. I still have it though and will use it if the case need be. Only 100$ at Target, you save quite a bit with the cheap plan.

    A most lovely phone, but limited in memory with no expansion, which is a shame for such a good music phone. It's big brother the w800i isn't nearly so sexy looking.
