Motorola MicroTAC



The world's first flip phone was the Motorola MicroTAC 9800X launched in 1989. It's a design that was still seen today on millions of mobile phones around the world until the arrival of smartphones. The early phones were all analogue, and had the small LED display that is sought after by collectors. The later phones had the modern LCD display and some of them were digital and can still be used today. One of the best features of these phones is the antenna, which pulls up from the top of the phone. The antenna is just a piece of plastic and has no affect on reception. The phones antenna is internal, but it was felt that customers would want to see an external antenna, so one was added! On the 9800X the microphone was built into the flip part of the phone, but on all other models, it was in the body of the phone and the grooves cut into the flip are just for show.

The digital MicroTACs here work on GSM900. To see which networks these will work with see GSM Availability

The basic design was used in many different types of phones, branded with many different names. Some of those phones didn't have the flip, some did. Scroll down the page to see the current stock.

All you need to do is tape a 2G small SIM into the card (with the tape on the opposite side to the metal bit!) and slot it into the phone. If you have a phone already and need one of these cards then we sell them at £2 including delivery to anywhere in the world.

Motorola International 7200 made in 1994. Model No - SUF1515C. Serial No - 0922USCM17.

Phone with battery attached measures 15.5cm high x 5.5cm wide x 4cm deep. Antenna is 12.5cm long. Weight of package is 715g.

The phone is in very good used condition, with some wear, especially on the power button. We charged the battery and tested the phone by making and receiving a call on it and receiving a text. This phone can receive, but not send texts. Everything worked perfectly. The texts scrolls across the screen, like all texts should! The battery holds a charge.

The phone uses a large SIM card, so we have included a SIM card adaptor in order that the phone can be used with a modern small SIM. The SIM card pushes into a slot in the base of the phone. This phone will work with any 2G or 3G (not 3G only) SIM that can use the GSM900 system, which is still supplied in the UK by O2 and Vodafone. For all other countries see here
