This little phone had an initial price tag of 299$ but now its so old and not current that i got mine in 2003 for 30$ at radioshack . It came with 60 minutes of air time ( worth about 20$ ) so it costed me 10$ ( no kidding ) ... it was still a bit fun in 2003 but now with all the fun phones comming out...More
