    Good question • I don't know. At least phones didn't all look the same back then.

    I remember that phone. I remember Alltel having a similar model but now that I think about it, it might have been an even worse handset from Pantech. What was it with companies and square-ish handsets around, what, 2005-2006?

    Not sure what they were thinking, just like I am not sure what I am seeing?

    Long time no see!

    I was told by the owner of the phone that the Sprint one was purple, what color were the other ones?

    Dang!

    I should have made this into a contest with the prize being the Sorint version, donated by the owner. Of course they maynot have agreed to.

    There can be no giveaway. The phone now lives at the City of Mess hazardous waste disposal site.

    You threw a valuable item like that in HazMat disposal? I don't know about kids today, no respect for old stuff. :D

    Thanks to all that participated and yes it is the Sprint version of the LG Lotus.

    This reminds me, I need to see if I have my old Analog/TDMA Nokia 5100 series phone with the GSM "surfboard" that slipped between the handset and the battery. I last saw it several moves ago and I hope I still have it.

    I remember having one of those for a short time. I sold it as my carrier didn't support it at the time.

    I had the 5165 for about a year. It had fantastic signal and the battery lasted a week

    Pretty I breakable as well.
