Not a mobile phone as such, but an early example of a portable wireless data modem. Has a serial port for connection to a PC. Also functions as a two way pager device. Operated on freq band just below the AMPS band. Cost $1100 new.

Hi Thomas.
Interesting InfoTAC model you have, I have not seen one with a transparent case.
This looks like the 450 MHz version with the extendable antenna.
Have you tried powering yours up ? They used a 7.5v Nicad pack, but my original battery was stuffed, so made a new one.
The unit is powered & charged with 12v DC, centre pin positive.
Shame I cannot actually use it anymore !
Do you have any documentation for the InfoTAC ? I am after a copy of the user guide for it.
Cheers, Chris

Hello Chris,

unfortunately the device lost a contact, so I can not test it. I saved the modem in the resolution of the Motorola Wireless Data Division from scrapping. Unfortunately, I have neither a guide nor any information about the InfoTAC. Sorry.

Cheers

Hi Thomas.
So you now have a user guide & handbook for the InfoTAC ?
If so, I would love to have a copy of this.
Especially interested in how to talk to it with a PC.
Cheers, Chris

Hi Chris,

Yes, I have now the manual for the InfoTAC, because it was still unused in it´s box. ;) However, it is in German. I am still this week on vacation and it'll copy and upload beginning the week after next.

Cheers

Thanks Thomas, much appreciated. Don't care if it is in German, will still be useful to me.
And I see the brief guides are in English as well.
Cheers, Chris

I have made up a serial adapter for this InfoTAC. Appears to work ok. When the InfoTAC is connected to my laptop serial port, and I open a session with Putty, a computer symbol appears on the InfoTAC screen. But I cannot log into it or anything, tried some different serial port settings with no luck.

Thomas, I am very keen to get the info from you.
Do you know if it needs special software to talk to it with a PC ? I see a floppy disk in your photo.
If so, I would be very keen to get a copy of the software.
Also, does the handbook say what the serial port settings should be set to ?

Cheers, Chris

Hi Chris,

The manuals are attached. 8-) I am not sure about the software on the floppy disk. I do not have a floppy drive within my laptop and do not know anybody who may have such an old device... :cry:

I hope the manual will help you!

Cheers
Thomas

Thanks Thomas, great !
But it sadly has no info about how to actually talk to a PC with it.
Has the wiring diagram for the PC cable, but I have made an adapter already.
And thanks so much for uploading more old mobile phone brochures !
Cheers, Chris.
