maybe it was nextel. it worked like a wlakie talkie  adults beep beep to others and start talking
Nextel was a service provider. Motorola developed the technology that included the two way radio feature, and manufactured most (maybe even all) of the models offered with Nextel.

Those are the phones that had a window on the flip part to allow display of the inner screen even when it's flipped shut?

I recall reading an article in Hebrew a few years ago that mentioned many differences between once and now. One that comes to mind:
"I remember when a rabbi was the one who gave a hesped and a badchan was one to make us laugh..."

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
