I heard it could be a hearing aid. Back in the 20s/30s hearing aids were bulky and were hand held and would much like a cell phone

Pretty ridiculous that somebody would be smart enough to travel through time but stupid enough to be caught using a cell phone on a busy movie set, and in front of a running camera no less. What is he/she saying into it exactly? "Can you see me now? What about now? ....Now?"

Even if one could travel back in time and take a cell phone with you, how the hell would you be able to use it? There would be no cell towers, no technology at all for it to be usable.

I was gonna say, I can barely get bars where I live, but this guy can still get a signal 80 odd years into the past? Who's his provider?

Captain Kirk doesn't need any cell towers.

I find it even more retarded that CNN would put this out.

They're very clearly treating it as a joke. Pretty much all networks like to do a bit light bit of non-news every now and then. Like the constantly recurring story about the disinterested panda who can't get it up.
