And where are the other mobile phones to go with it..whats the point of being the only person with a mobile.

I love these stories, just a much as I am loving the white gloves.

What is sad is they make these stories up because someone out there will believe it.

Come on, admit it: It's yours. Your bony fingers could punch those buttons quite well, I'm sure. :P

I knew it. And it even gives you the physique of a runway model.

I saw the photo, laughed it off as a clever hoax.

And then grew worried that somebody might buy into it.

That thing was a status symbol.

"Look Cymborg the Osymidians can afford Nokias for themselves. You are a poor provider with inferior genetic material.

Reversed engineered from a cell phone that was transported back into the past? Paradox's give me headaches.

One of the ET's phones obviously, couldn't find where he had left it because he never installed the "where is my phone" app. :P

After 800 years, the SIM will no longer be registered, but you can still call the emergency services.

So now they are presumably looking for the cell phone towers to match ?

A mobile phone would be quite useless without any infrastructure, so this is once again one of those hoaxes that have not been very well thought out. :no:

... word on the street says Nokia found the phone in 1993 and based its entire company on this ancient technology.

Maybe it got seized by authorities hence no more news. All these writings of Egyptian like symbols on 'artifacts, walls n downed ufos' really makes u feel there could really be aliens out there ya..
