Retro mobile phone

    If I were to get one of these mobiles which existed in the 1980s, would they still work in this day and age? Did they even use sim cards back then?

    A sim card? More like a hard drive. X)

    Most brick phones were analogue only a few worked on the GSM system
    In the UK the analogue system was turned off several years ago.
    I'm not aware of a system that allows you to use analogue phones with GSM.

    Or take out insides and insert smart phone

    I think they still work in Cambodia.
