This is most likely the case, but it still doesn't explain why the person "appears" to be talking into the device.
"This crappy piece of shit hearing aid isn't working"
"It just keeps repeating '1.21 Gigawatts!'"

This, it doesn't take an indie documentary filmmaker to figure this out.
Not this. I actually disagree with the assessment by the dude who uploaded the video that she notices or cares about the camera at all. She seems like she just turns to walk in a different direction all of a sudden and keeps going about her business. She turns, but she doesn't really "stop" as if she were startled by something.
 
Leave it to GAF to feel superior by pointing out the flaws in a video that supposedly shows time travel.

IT'S NOT REAL I FIGURED IT OUT TAKE THAT INTERNET YOU'RE DUMB
 
Pfft. It's a hearing aide. He should have been focused on the cross fade out, because it wasn't. She was obviously teleported back to the enterprise after violating the prime directive.

How was she talking on a cellphone with no network/cellphone infrastructure/etc lol
I sincerely doubt this person this a time traveler and probably just had a mental condition or was just testing her dumb big 1920's hearing aid, but what is it with this argument? I would hope that if we're bloody capable of time travel then we're capable of creating communication devices that don't need a network/infrastructure/etclol. Also people assume that this person is calling someone across time, why not a fellow time traveler?

But yeah, pure bunk.
 
I think she had a toothache and had something in her hand to cool it. And then she's either talking to herself or she's checking that bad tooth with her tongue. We don't know if she's actualy talking.
 
it only looks like a cellphone because that image of someone holding a hand to their face creates that impression in your head, because thats what people today do. Its just us projecting current activity onto old footage and making 2+2=5. It is quite interesting though - the hand is covering the 'object' quite a lot, so there wouldn't be much exposed surface for a traditional ear trumpet. Plus the guy in front is moving away from her and doesn't seem to be talking, so I don't know if they're together.

whats with that sunglasses guy photo?
 
i agree with the video, the woman walks like a dude. after closer inspection of the face i have come to a conclusion...

steve jobs in disguise.

iphone time traveling.
 
If it is a time traveler (which i doubt),
then I can only imagine the conversation being this:

-So where am I supposed to be now?
-You've just been spotted on camera.
-What?
 
I love how they show you the clip AFTER the dude tells you what you're about to see. It's classical: tell someone what they're going to see, show them an unclear image and they'll immediatly associate it with whatever was told them it is.

You are right, which is why I showed some friends without the pre-knowledge. They all saw the same thing. Someone holding a cellphone.

whatever it was, it is cool intruige for a morning.

How could someone use a cellphone in the 20's even if they were a time traveler? Do people think the phone system is fueled by timeless magic?
It's not a cellphone, it's a device for transmitting neutrinos through Calabi-Yau space.

So how would the reception work?

People with mental conditions in the era were sent to institutions without question most of the time. This woman looks rather opulent and, at the very least, capable of dressing herself. There is nothing else in her observed behavior to warrant the idea of "crazy old bat."

I like how this post sounds so serious. :lol

The Doctor in Doctor who travels space and time with companions (humans mostly).

He gives them cell phones that allow them to call their own time and speak to family members.

Throw in the username and it is perfect.
If I can just get one more GAF member interested in Doctor Who, this whole mad endeavour was worth it.
