Motorola StarTac Burning Black

I don’t know if cellular phones cause cancer or not, but I can share with you an experience I had many years ago with my BLACK Motorola StarTac cellular phone.

Before I get into the guts of a review that includes swapping out three Motorola StarTAC 7868Ws in less than 24 hours, let me provide a little of my “cellular background” so you’ll know where I’m coming from in evaluating these services and products. These introductory comments will frame the pearls to be divined later. In order to keep this review relevant and evergreen, I will continually update it with results – both good and bad – of my ongoing relationship with Verizon Wireless.
