    I had purchased my first home and my first new car. I had a burgundy Motorola flip phone. That was the shiniest phone and I loved it so much. I had no idea what a Blackberry was. I was pickin' in high cotton. Partying like it was 1999

    I was in my senior year of high school and selling computers part-time at Circuit City. I bought a sweet Motorola StarTAC and was one of very few kids in my class with a cell phone.

    I had just upgraded to my Palm T|C, which I still have. Both it and my old Blackberries were/are still ahead of my iPhone 6. I can still search for things in the calendar on the older devices back to 1999, I can't do that on my iPhone!!!

    I bought my first house in 1999 as well, had a land line and a flip phone, but wasn't really into the phone at all, my first cell phone I got back around the early/mid 90's and that was a brick

    1999? We were in a temporary arrangement living in a barn in Eastaboga, Alabama. We had a landline we shared with the mice. No cell. I still had a beeper though.

    I was 9/10, no cell phone. I remember the answering machine though. I can't even remember if I had a calculator though, at the time I think we shared them at school. My mom had a cell phone though.

    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.

    Haha, it would depend on the time of year to say if I was 9 or 10. If blackmagicwoman means this time of year in '99, I was 9, but I am an autumn/fall baby.

    I think my cell phone at the time was a Nokia 5110. But before that, I had a bag phone. I didn't choose it.. my husband did.

    I also owned a compaq ipaq, which I never fully utilized.

    Thanks for starting this post. Like it!

    I was 39 and had just moved from Ontario to Alberta. Owned a iMac G3 and had a brick for a cell phone. Believe it was a Motorola. There was no way you put it in a pocket. Had just finished buying my 3rd home. Was well into my career in the printing industry and was a production manager. Had just stated my other career as a firefighter & EMT.

    I just wanted to have a thread where everybody could participate. Not for any particular phone or just to be able to share things with other members. Sometimes the forums forget about the iPhone 4,4s, 5, 5s models. Thanks for participating.

    In a suburb of Los Angeles, the 10th grade, and had a Motorola Star Tac activated for me on my dad's AirTouch account for emergencies. I don't think I even started using my cell phone regularly until I was actually graduated from high school.

    Did you have a Zippo lighter versus a Bic? Most people don't remember those.
