Cell Phone Time Capsule Of Pictures

7 years ago, I was with one cell phone carrier, and then I got involved with my wife. Like any couple, you want to watch where your spending goes, so we got into a family plan and switched carriers. 7 years later I’m back with the original carrier and decided to see if my original cell phone would work.

Cell phones have come a long way. In 2007, we were introduced to the iPhone that set the bar for apps and multitasking, and now it’s hard to find a phone that doesn’t do all that extra stuff. Remember when you just made phone calls?

So I find my Motorola RAZR V3, which was a popular phone back in the early 2000’s. I loved it so much that I used it for 3 years until I made the first cell phone switch. I wanted to see if my new smaller SIM card from 2013, that holds all your contacts and phone number, would be able to exist in a 2004 phone. Thanks to my technology driven mind and an old SIM template online, I crafted an old SIM card from a business card and stuck my new SIM to it.


It powered right up, and I had pictures on my phone from way back in the day such as my old apartment, my wife and I in our dating years, even pictures of the car we bought together 6 years ago.

What a time capsule! I need to go through this thing and try to get the pictures off of it so I can show you. It’s amazing this phone just made calls. What an idea. No apps, no nonsense, just calls.
