Waiting around for a rebate offer so you can score a sweet new handset? Why not go retro instead with Kraco's KCP-205 Trans-mobile cellular phone, listed on eBay at an opening bid of $15. That's approximately $1,500 less than it originally cost back in the day, when all you needed was a shoulder, an oil field and a dream. The phone was only used for one month, and the leather carrying case and manual are still in great shape. Just remember, even if you do convince some carrier to give you service for this old clunker, it would only last a few weeks, as the cellphone analog switch-off is still scheduled for Feb. 19. Good hunting! [eBay]
