Motorola Brick Phones



Following on from the DynaTAC series, in the early '90s, Motorola launched new brick phones that were 2cm less deep, but otherwise the same size. They were sold in large numbers, until much smaller phones became more popular. In the US these bricks were made up until the late 90s and many people in rural areas still use them because they have a better range than modern phones. In the UK the last of the bricks was the 888 made up until 1995.

Strangely, after the launch of these thinner phones, Motorola then brought out the Independent and Pulsar, which were the same size as the old DynaTACs. They did not sell well, and consequently not many have survived.

These phones are analogue and so cannot be used today. Spare antenna are available on the Brick Phone Antenna page.
