Have you seen the one about the modern hipster in the photograph from 1940?
He certainly looks out of place!

I don't see anything that makes it look particularly like a phone, it look too long to my mind. I think it looks more like she is holding a purse up to hide her face from the camera. As for the talking, I don't see why she can't simply be talking to the gentleman who disappeared off-screen as she checks to see if she is still in the camera's line of sight.
I really doubt that not one out of more than a hundred people could offer an alternative explanation, it seems far more likely that he just wont accept any alternative explanation over what he truly believes he is seeing.

I don't see anything at all in her hand, but it begs the question of why a time traveller would attempt to use a cell phone in the 1920's. What is it going to connect to?

Someone talking on a cell phone in 1928?
When there were no other cell phones to talk to.
When there were no cell towers to transmit a signal.
Makes perfect sense to me.
Of course, it could always be a futuristic cell phone that communicates to the future by some unknown technology. In which case there's no particular reason to suppose it would look like a cell phone.
So, someone went to the trouble to dress in period clothing when they went back into the past with their time machine, then used technology from 100 years in the future and did it in front of a camera, recording it for all posterity. Makes perfect sense to me.

Then it's definitely faked. In TOS, the communicator was held out in front. In TNG, it was just the emblem on the front of the uniform. None of the various incarnations used a communication device held up to one's head.

"Nobody can give me an explanation," is the theme song of the True Believer™. It translates as, "I won't accept any reasonable explanation."
A better explanation than "time traveller" would be "crazy lady who thinks she has a mobile phone".

Superphone
Hi Subbie,
Ever watch Doctor Who?
quote:
Superphone
The "Superphone" is an upgraded mobile phone that can make calls across time and space. It even calibrates to the user's home time period, as shown by Adam Mitchell's ability to call his home time on Rose Tyler's phone ("The Long Game"), despite their native time periods being about six years apart. In addition, it can send signals in places ordinary phones cannot, such as the sealed Cabinet Rooms at 10 Downing Street ("World War Three"). However, its range is not infinite ("The Impossible Planet"). The Doctor describes the Superphone as being able to "...Call anyone, in any time, so long as you know the area code."
The superphone first appears in "The End of the World", where the Ninth Doctor modifies Rose's Nokia 3200 mobile phone with a special device that goes in place of the battery. In "Rise of the Cybermen", the Nokia 3200 is replaced by a Samsung D500, but otherwise seems to function the same. A Samsung D500 is also seen used by Tish Jones in The Sound of Drums. It is also able to link up with the Cybus Industries Ear-Pod network. Rose gives the phone to Mickey Smith at the end of "The Age of Steel", but replaces it soon after.
After Martha Jones becomes an ongoing companion to the Tenth Doctor in "42", he gives her phone, the BenQ-Siemens EF81 a similar upgrade. This phone, however, is upgraded by the Doctor's sonic screwdriver, and the feature itself is referred to as "Universal Roaming". Martha's phone has the Archangel network logo on its display, the significance of which is revealed in "The Sound of Drums". At the end of the episode "Last of the Time Lords", Martha gives her phone to the Doctor, so she can contact him if trouble occurs. The Doctor uses the same process to upgrade Donna Noble's phone in "The Doctor's Daughter", but it is only used once onscreen to contact Martha's similarly upgraded phone. When his allies try contact the Doctor in "The Stolen Earth" by means of Martha's superphone now in his possession, the number displayed onscreen is 07700 900461. After the airing of this episode, 2500 fans tried dialing the number.[6] In "Journey's End", Wilfred mentions that he has received a phone call from Donna, presumably by means of her Superphone.
In "Planet of the Dead", the Doctor uses the sonic screwdriver to create a superphone to contact, and be contacted by, Malcolm Taylor, who is the other side of the wormhole. The phone is of the Nokia Prism series.

Negative. Spock would, especially in the first season.

Re: Superphone
Only watched the latest reboot, which I tremendously enjoy. I thought the stuff from the 60s and 70s was unbearably flaky.
