i may sound stupid but i just got a motorola startac and i have no idea where to put the sim card, can somebody help me out? please.
The best phone I ever had the size for that period in mobile phone history was minute.
what i mostly love on this phone is its pretty damn good HD video recording capability.
WHat I love in this fone is the ZOOM capability of its camera w/c 20 megapixels, with auto focus btw.
Great strong wifi b/g/n.
Blue tooth is updated at 4.5
With a resistive touch screen w/c is small at only 2" btw, what a waste

JERRY, 12 Dec 2008i really enjoy using this phone, i especially love the wifi functionsJajajajajajaja good one
to JERRY - what u talking about? wifi in 1997??? on startac85?!? are u drunk?
This is the best phone i have ever used.
i have used many modern phones but this one was very special to me.
I loved the StarTAC when it was introduced, which is why I invented the StarCAP. I wanted to make it more durable and pocketable. I'm happy to see I wasn't alone.
I got my StarTac in late 2001 and Iím still using it today. Iím on my 2nd battery and things are going just great. I bought a StarCap antenna protection clip soon after I saw other people with broken antennaís. So how did I choose the StarTac? I watched which sales guys ran out of the building to use their phones and which ones were walking around inside the building with no reception problems. Like everyone has said, great UI and sound. I found out I could get a new phone free from Verizon, so I started looking at the Motorola KRZR and LG 8600 and decided to just keep my StarTac for now. Iíve also got a Palm TX which covers most bells and whistles anyone could need.
Was this the first flip phon inbvented it ROX I wish i had t5he mouny for this phone
Is the Star-Tac 85 compatible with the new FCC inspired satellite system in the US? I went to a Verizon store and the jokers talked me in to buying a new Moto-Razor, it was horrible. They said I had 15 days to take it back. I returned it in 2. When I asked them to turn my old Star-Tac7800W phone back on they said "oh, we neglected to tell you", we cannot reactivate that phone because it's not on the new Verizon satellite system. I was furious. I am now looking for a similar phone that can work on the new Satellit system. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Great phone!! I think i'm not wrong when I say it was the first phone to have been released in true clam-shell format. Still good-looking, still going strong after more than five years of operation. From a time when pc-to-phone comms and polyphonic ringtones were sparks in the eyes of designers :D
I just got this phone last week in Bangkok. it's a second hand phone but it looks so neat and beautiful. kind of classic phone. i know someone seeing it feel jealous me. I think it is very new. I love it. Also I used StarTAC before. I now i use Moto. E680i and StarTAC85 at the same time.
