    Back when those bag phones were the only thing out they gave you celebrity status. If you walked through a mall with it, everyone looked at you! And take it out to the bar? Holy crap, you became the center of attention! "Let me call my friend"! *Hey GoBears, I hope that Metallica was And Justice for All or earlier! :biggrin:
