Hi Mr. StarTAC,

Pretty nice and interesting phone! Is this phone based on the ST 85 GSM900? It looks very similar to my ST 85 here: http://www.mobilecollectors.net/phone/3 ... g%2Bsample

So maybe my phone is also a StarTAC D?

Best regards
Thomas

Hello,

This StarTAC D may be identical to Motorola "Alex" or StarTAC 200...
In this download: http://www.mobilecollectors.net/downloa ... ice_manual
there are some PDFs about dual slot StarTAC.The most interesting is the "NEW PRODUCT JUSTIFICATION REPORT" (Motorola Confidential :-) with expected selling volumes and product development cost calculation...

According this service manual dual slot StarTAC based on the StarTAC 85 so Your phone should be StarTAC D.

Yes I believe oldmobil is correct. It was called Project Alex and was designed to be a new mobile banking platform. Yours must certainly be a Startac D (the D stands for "dual slot"). Since yours says "Vorführgerät" it must be a floor model used to show customers how to use it. You might want to try inserting a debit card into the phone and see if it activates the special menu. Please post results if you do!
