At least it seems to be one of the later-model bag phones.
However, from whom would you obtain the analog service that that phone probably requires?
True story: A friend of mine bought a used BMW 740i and was delighted to find that it had an integrated cell phone. However, as the car was a 90s model, the built-in cell phone required analog service to work. After calling practically every cellular provider in the yellow pages (and after getting laughed at A LOT!), he finally found one small, independent, local company that still offered analog...at a less than competitive price. Still, in his mind it was worth it just to have a cool feature of his car be once again fully functional. What a pity it was then when he spilled an entire cup of coffee on his console and shorted out the inner workings of his built-in cell phone less than a week after he'd obtained service for it.
