Proof That Kim Kardashian Uses A Ridiculously Ancient Phone

#MostTalkedAboutPhone

Posted on October 28, 2014, at 7:39 p.m. ET

In an interview with tech blog Recode, Kim revealed that her preferred phone is the Blackberry Bold. In fact, she has three spares she bought on eBay (because they're not sold in stores anymore) waiting at home in case she breaks one.

She uses an iPhone for the better camera and social media, but she prefers the keyboard to type fast. This is madness. Here are documented instances of Kim using a Blackberry Bold in the year 2014:
