** That was actually a "recorded cache" example -- Spock explains that the information is in his tricorder scans of the Guardian of Forever (taken before and after Bones went back and changed history), but he needs additional computer equipment to find which particular images are the crucial ones.

* In ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' Doc Brown is able to hook-up a 1980's video camera to his 1950's-era television set. Granted the picture came through in black and white, but that doesn't explain how he was able to connect it since back then home tv's didn't have A/V inputs. (Of course, he ''is'' Doc Brown, inventor extraordinare).
** Many early camcorders also had RF adapters that allowed the device to work through a TV's antenna input (both 75 ohm coaxial and 300 ohm "twin lead" connections), so this would not be a problem.
** This is actually addressed in the film's DVDCommentary. When working on that scene, they had extreme trouble finding a black and white TV that could be connected to their video camera. In the end, they used a color TV, and shot the footage on the camera in black and white.

** Or rather the long distance charges. Even mobile-to-mobile can't save you now, Doctor! Muahahaha!
*** Free unlimited, of course, since the use of the Cardiff Rift (and presumably others like it) for 'pit stops' for the TARDIS is nothing less than free energy.



** Actually, that is explained as he recorded the images the Guardian was showing before they went back in time. He just needed to use the tricorder to slow them down and isolate them. The real problem is that the few vacuum tubes that he bought in the 1930s wouldn't be of any help at all.
*** He had a Jacob's Ladder: the nifty V-shaped device that emits sparks. Known fact: Jacob's Ladders can do ''anything''. As long as you have one on any kind of device, it will enable said device to [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands do and access anything]]. Standard equipment in the MadScientistLaboratory.
*** Well, of course. A Jacob's Ladder is [[LightningCanDoAnything tamed lightning]], after all...

* As said above, the Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' managed to make an ordinary Nokia 3200 cellphone capable of calling through time. Possibly justified by the TARDIS acting as a relay station. No word yet on what the roaming charges are...

** This might actually be justified if you take the view that [[spoiler:the mobile phone signal can travel through the portal from Andalasia Castle to Time Square, giving her roughly the same reception at the castle as you'd get in Time Square.]]
*** Might even be further justified in that [[spoiler: Andalasia is a "perfect" fairy tale world, where EVERYTHING good will end up with a happily ever after...even cell phone service.]]

* Inverted on ''EerieIndiana''--one of the weird things the main character collected over the course of that series was an old-fashioned radio that only played music from the 1940s.

* Played dead straight in ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime''. Not only is Bentley able to access the internet on his computer no matter how far back in time the gang goes, but much like Dr. Who, the Grizz, who has traveled back to 10000 B.C, is able to talk to le Paradox back in the present using a cell phone. Likewise, Dimitri, back in the present, is able to contact the gang no matter how far back they go.
