    Im attempting to take a motorola S3227A bag phone, and convert it from analog to digital. Is there anyway to possibly piggy back a analog to digital converter? or just scrap the whole innards and start with new parts? i Just want the look of the box and the use of the handset. Would it be possible?

    Interesting project to test fine motor skills.
    Choosing a modern cell phone that will lodge in the old case, flush, well fit, exposing keypad and screen should do it.
    Forget about adapters.
    Just nest a new one in the old case.

    As Externet says, just insert a new cell phone inside the bag phone, cause 90% of the old phone is worthless.
