Made in USA? - Was best VZ phone...

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Paul of Dayton, Oct 31, 2003.

  1. Are there any current celular telephones made in the USA? I was under the
    impression that the last USA built Motorola was a Timeport...

  2. Yep. My 2+ year old StarTac says "made in China" and the Motorola battery
    attached says "made in Japan." Too expensive to make things in the US so
    companies haved stop trying to do it.

  3. I bumped into the guy who set me up with my first phone (a brick in 1991).
    I asked him what a good phone was nowadays and he showed me his P8767
    Timeport flip-phone. He said it was the last great phone. I probably
    agree. I'm using a vx4400 now which replaced the T720 that didn't work.
    I'd still be using my P8767 if it hadn't suffered an untimely death. (Well,
    maybe not - I can use my laptop with the LG.)

    There are still several P8767s on e-Bay. You can swap in the phone into service
    whenever you want on the Verizon web (for most parts of the US).

    I'm waiting to read a review that states that a new phone has better "RF",
    "volume" and "sound quality" than the P8767. Okay, even equal would do it.
