Okay, my characters have traveled from a forest that had minimal technology to a crime-stricken city where the technology is advanced, but not over-the-top chrome and touch pads everywhere and such. The characters are staying at an inn and they need to use a phone type of device to get in touch with someone they're trying to find. I don't want them to use a telephone, because it's more of a fantasy story, and I think adding a phone would kind of take away from the idea of a fictional world. I also don't want them to use telepathy or anything because they're not that cool. lol One of the characters is a girl who loves gadgets and little pieces of portable technology, but I can't think of a communication gadget that isn't a walkie talkie or a wristwatch that she can talk into. So I need help thinking of something neat but not over-the-top that is either portable or that the characters find in their room at the inn. Any suggestions?
