on earth would she manage to pick up a signal in the 50's? If she managed to take some sort of portable transmission technology with her, who would
she call? I think walkie talkies would be more realistic
It does look like she's holding a mobile though...

I have stated this on several threads on Time travel photo's and video's in the past about communication devices.....
I am always amazed by people who always keep referring to there being no towers available at such times before towers were needed in order to be able
to send messages by mobile/cell phones.....
If there are such things as time travellers, do you really think that they would need towers in order to send messages? If such technology has been
developed in order to transport people back in time, do you really think that towers would be a necessity?
If people can time travel I am sure that they have developed a much better way of communicating in a far better sophisticated way that does not need
towers of any nature....
I just wish people would try and think outside the box a little bit more....
Sadly I think you too are still firmly planted inside that box....
Here is the issue with what you are saying:
It is being claimed that a woman in 1950 is using a CELL PHONE.
A CELL PHONE would not operate in 1950.
So you say it's some sort of advanced communication device.
Ok, that's possible.
But, if it's some advanced time traveler communication device, then it's NOT A CELL PHONE.
That simple flow of a logic proves without a doubt she does not have a cellphone.
Now could she really be a time traveler with some advanced communication device? Sure, why not. But if we are to accept that she is a time traveler,
and accept she has advanced communication tech, then the uniqueness of this video clip totally disappears.
Why you ask? Because if we are to assume she has an advanced communication device, then that means we have no idea what type of communication devices
they have. They could be anything, which means we have no frame of reference with which to judge the validity of a time traveler sighting.
Which means we can look at ANY video of ANY time period, find someone doing something odd, and then claim they are time travelers with advanced tech.
A guy in an old western is holding his six-shooter. NO WAIT. It's not a six-shooter, it's an advanced communication device built to look like a
revolver as to blend in and avoid the temporal natives from knowing whats going on.
Do you see the problem here? You could view a movie with a guy using those old ear horns, which were basically brass (or whatever) horns that people
put up to their ears to aid their hearing. You could claim his giant brass horn hearing aid is actually a time travelers communication device since
their tech is so advanced, and they are so smart, they would disguise their communication tech in temporally appropriate gear.
So we think she is a time traveler because we see her doing something, using a cell phone. But we know it's NOT a cellphone, it's impossible, it
wouldn't function. Which means, if she is a time traveler, and that is a communication device, we have no idea what a time traveler's communication
device would look like, so it's impossible to judge this video clip and say she is doing something out of place, since we have no idea what a future
time traveler's advanced communication tech would look like, or more importantly what that woman would look like while using that tech.
