If I ever start a topical collection, this would be the topic. Especially since there are hundreds of posts to reference for a checklist.

This May 20, 1960 12 franc value (Sc #314) of New Caledonia is from the 'Centenary of the Post' set of three stamps. I'm not sure how the the P.T.T. (postal, telegraphic and telephone service,) 'figures' in the set, but the P.T.T. was initiated in France in 1879.

Here is the 1200 dinar value (Sc #1893) from Yugoslavia's April 30, 1988 transport and communications-themed EUROPA set of two stamps. Stamp depicts a woman using a 'brick' phone.

Fromretrowow.co.uk, "The original mobile phones from the 1980s were referred to as bricks, because they were as big as a house brick...The hand held mobile...was a status symbol in the 80s and a source of irritation on trains and in restaurants for everyone else."
