Were there cell phones in 1908?

No. Cell phones are a recent thing. Back in the early 90's, it was amazing to see someone with a cell phone.

I don't think so. My papaw was born in 1923 and he said he can remember using those old phones you have to turn the little dial to the number you want. I could be wrong, but I'm almost sure there weren't.

The Transponders used in Star Trek were just props. At the time, there was no such thing as a cell phone. Kudos the the directors and prop makers for talking to Motorola on what they envisioned for the future of communications. The first wireless phone didn't come out until 1983...certainly not exactly portable, the battery was carried in a bag giving birth to the term "bag phone".

Yes there were cell phones in 1908, people hooked a long sting to a potato and yelled real loud into it.

1908, definitely not, 1980, possibly, but they would have been like a 5 lb. brick with an antenna and have been ridiculously expensive.
