Cracking Open the Motorola Advisor Gold pager (1997)
In the mid- to late-1990s, cellular phones were rapidly replacing pagers in the personal communication market. Still, it wasn't uncommon for people to have both a mobile phone (particularly in their car) and a pager. In 1997, I was such a person.
I had a phone in my car and carried this Motorola pager. Nearly 15 years later, I decided to dig it out of storage and crack it open. Follow along as I take a look inside the Motorola Advisor Gold pager (circa 1997).
