My first portable cellphone was a Motorola Microtak from 1990 I think. It was so expensive to use that I crinched everytime someone called. Yes, I had to pay a small fee when someone called me. And outgoing calls cost around $1,2 per minute plus the startfee which I cant remember. My very first phone was a Mitsubishi phone that was installed in my car. You could get a battery for it, which was almost as big as a car battery. The phone cost $2500 and the battery was around $1200 I think.

You may be able to modify the radio bands to the US 1900 band with a hex editor and the phone connected to a PC.. It's been a minute since I've done it on the old school Motorola's, but I used to do it with Europe and Japan only Motorola's all the time.. I'm not even sure if the support forums for those phones exist anymore lol

My first phone was a lookalike of that famous nokia phone everyone is nostalgic over. It came from a walmart under t-mobile. I believe it was in the late 90s. It even had those beepy buttons and calculator-like LCD screen. I don't even remember what make or model it was.
