    In North Carolina with a Sprint/Motorola bag phone. Best reception ever!
    Remember the mobile phone antennas that used to be affixed to the rear window? I kid you not, but I saw a car with a fake one attached. My teen son didn't know what it was, and when I explained it to him, he was in awe.

    I was with Sprint too in 1999. I remember the commercials with the needles falling to the floor. They promised clear calls. Oh well. Those were the days.

    Where were you in 1999? What device did you have?-img_1005-evolution-5_thumb555.jpg

    Had a Motorola phone that looked kinda like this. It was given to me by my family to make emergency calls. So, it was free. I also had a pager. I used that a lot more than the phone. I didn't buy my own phone until around 2003-2005. Ironically, that was a Samsung phone.

    I was on a local carrier called Honolulu Cellular which became Cingular then AT&T.

    I was in 10th grade and had a TI-89 calculator. If you were found to have a cell phone in my school at that time you were immediately suspended for 2 weeks because they assumed anyone who had a cell phone then was a drug dealer.
    Should be the same way today. Kids do not need mobile phones that in school.

    Maybe you and me are tied for that. LOL.

    I have used a typewriter, my mom had one by Brother. Cassette player, yes, and VCR totally. Also remembering when we would tell each other to be quiet so that we could record a song off the radio. i also remember really wanting a walkman!

    I didn't get my first phone until I was 16 years old.

    Oh I used a Underwood typewriter in school from junior high all the way through high school. I still have that typewriter. Was made in 1925. I typed all of my homework and notes. I had folders for each class with a table of contents in each folder. The teachers thought that was a great idea. The typewriter is one heave puppy. Works great though.

    16 I was still using our parents rotary phone. No such things as mobile phones. As today I still use a rotary phone here. Will use mobile phone when I am not home though. The rotary phone has a nice loud ring to it.

    I had a Panasonic brick phone, similar in size to the current cordless phones. I was drooling over a Motorola flip phone.

    Edit: Ha, it was a Sony CMB1207CNT0, not Panasonic.

    https://wiki.xdroop.com/space/cellph...ny+CMB1207CNT0

    That was a good phone.

    I'm pretty sure I was rocking this instil I finally swapped for a Samsung SPH-A500 (http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=158) - $700 at the time but it was cream of the crop. Only better option was a BlackBerry. Finally made the switch to a BlackBerry circa 2005 and rocked BlackBerry exclusively until around 2012. From there it was everything from BlackBerry 10 to iPhone and even some Froyo Androids.

    I remember when my dad got one of those bag phones - when I was much younger, back in the 80's. It came with that antenna attached to the car. I was in awe myself.

    Working on an apple laptop (dont remember what; work provided) and had an errickson cell phone that had snake game and made calls. Ended up shattering phone the night my son was born (long story), but that was an expensive boo-boo to make.
