They used to sell car phones, that was before it was decided by the powers at be that holding something in one hand, whilst driving with the other, was all too much to cope with for the absolute f*ckwits who seem make up the vast majority of drivers in the UK...

Carphone Warehouse, have been around for over two decades now, they started during a time when mobile phones were a rare thing, and were literally Bricks, bricks so big that they needed a Car to carry them around, Also known as Carphones.

If you ever watch Saved by the Bell (early series) or Bread you'll see examples of how big the phones were in the eighties.
