In honor of the 30-year anniversary of the first ever flip phone (hey, Motorola), FrontierBundles.com is looking for one brave soul to use a flip phone for a week in exchange for $1,000.
This could be a dream job for the ’90s fanatic who wants to kick it all old-school like or even a fascinating social experiment for a curious tech junkie. Either way, we anticipate this will be quite the challenge given our reliance on smart technology. I mean, can you even imagine finding a new address without Google Maps?!
