Yeah it's always weird seeing those old flip-phones and big, clunky computers in old movies and TV shows now.
I still use a Nokia flip-open cellphone. It works.

Modern technology would ruin the "X-files".
The X-Files is hardly unique in that respect. How many movies and TV shows from the pre-cellular age have plot points that depend on a character being able to get to a phone -- or not being able to get to a phone? All those stories would have to be written differently today.
