That was the toughest phone I've seen.

@JimG i don't know why people diss flip phones. maybe they don't mind the occasional pocket dialing! flips never did that.

g

@genessa no, but I think the smaller screen is the issue now. Before smart phones, I loved the little folders.

@JimG ha -- for me, ANY phone' screen is too small for anything but, say, unique idea, but stay with me here, making and receiving phone calls. that's why god... wait, um, that's why ibm or whoever invented laptops!

g

@genessa this is much more convenient. My laptop is just for Netflix and Hulu now.

@JimG well my eyes are bad, my fingers not built for a phone, and my mobility such that a laptop is perfectly convenient to me. i don't get around much lol.

g

@genessa I understand. In my case the phone is with me and on usually. It's much faster than getting the laptop, powering it up, and logging on. My work laptop is never powered down for more than 5 or 10 minutes though.

@JimG my home laptop functions more or less as a desktop. thrice a week, when i am not sick (meaning not these past two weeks, as i AM sick) i have been unplugging it and carrying it in a bag to the adult daycare where my alzheimer's-afflicted guy goes and would not regularly go without me (he didn't want to go today because i couldn't go). i got a second laptop and now i just keep it in my bag and plug it in when i get there it's not urgent that it boot up immediately and i have my phone with me. i'm the vj there so i WANT it to boot up fast but no one will die from waiting for it. it's not as if i have a job and need to be productive, though sometimes i am anyway. i always have a whole lot of tabs up. as i type, here at home, i have (counting) about 60 tabs open. i really need to close some of those. not this one, of course.

No. 18. I was late getting onto the cell phone bandwagon.

So was I ?

@Sheannutt I told people that I didn't want to be disturbed by calls when I'm not at home. Now, I freak out if I don't have my cell with me at all times. It's my only phone now (other than the wireless home phone lines for my business).

@graceylou my phone that I have now is the only one I have. It is my source of being on the internet as well.

I think mine was #6. I was out for the day and the kids got sick at school. I couldn't be reached so their dad was called. When I finally got home their dad was LIVID that I could dare be out of touch so long!!! I got a cell phone the next week, and started to refer to it as my leash. So, we were living in Washington state, I'm guessing it was 1996 or 1997.

I lived under rock cuz I've never knew we had cell phones back then.

  1. That thing was indestructible. I broke 3 antennas off of it, but never even scratched the phone.

Mine was 7. I loved 14. That was probably my favorite phone of all time.

It was prepaid and for emergencies only.

I didn't get one until my sister got one for me. Still pays for it too. I hate being tethered, but it has come in handy in the car. I have turned off the ringer. I am on the third phone, and that is about all I can tell you.
