1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I was able to be on the cutting edge of cell phones and have this first generation flip phone. Paid 1400 for it looking to get 1000, any reasonable offers?

    Had one of these, and couple of the brick size ones when air time was $0.45 per minute.

    They are too ugly for paper weight, and too heavy for fishing weight. Good luck to your sale.

    Wow, $1400? In what, like 1988? That is more than $2700 in 2012 dollars. Great deal for someone.

    I'll trade an RCA top loading VCR with a wire remote for it that I paid $2800 for when it came out

    I had a Nokia Mobira back in 1983, paid $2800.00 plus a dollar a minute---such a deal---used to love it when the wife would call me as I was pulling into the driveway. Honestly the handset was the most impressive flashlight out there.

    I got three LG flippers that went swimming with me. Guess I wasn't use to being a cell phone owner. Anyway I'll trade them all for a box of trap loads. (reloads okay)

    Wolfram those LG's don't stand fire very well either

    Sometime back my wife who never carries her phone was complaining that the one she had didn't work, so I bought her a new one, the evening I got home and gave it to her, I needed to talk to her so I went to the house and the phone was laying on the table and she was in town, pi$$ed me off so bad I tossed it in the fireplace that was burning, it made a nice glow as it burn and a little pop when the battery went

    I rally taught her a lesson, I got to buy her a new one the next day
