Thank god I still have a 2002 mobile... At least back then people still knew that all you really want is a small phone that can call and do text messaging WITHOUT all the polyphonic-realmusic-ringtone-mega-pixel-camera-GPRS-UMTS-bling-bling-porn...

My phone is old...and my boyfriend has a really cool wonderiffic fancy phone, and he's technologically challenged. It's not fair.

:nod: Once you get a cell phone, you forget what the hell a landline's for. Man, I'm stuck to mine... although not willingly, that damned thing gets so hot it sticks.

I was so late to the cell phone scene that my first cell phone had a full color screen. My new one has a higher resolution screen and a built-in camera.

I've had a mobile since 96. I thought it was so small and swish

I found it the other day. it's like a bleeding brick

I got mine in about 96 as well. Analog (or was it the other one? lol) was banned not long after. I was on a $10 plan back then
I now have a new MOBILE, and now as in today, a mere 8 weeks after I got it, I've learned how to use the T9 thing...That writing thing which makes all texting proper and no c u l8r bullshit.


My MOBILE is going to write a novel one day.

That has pretty much been my experience too! Ever since they did away with analog and went to digital I feel like I'm on a walkie-talkie. My husband and I actually say "Over" when we end our sentences because if the other starts talking too soon, you can't hear anything.





As for cell phone over-usage...I went to Ashlee Simpson's show in Feb and everyEVERY single girl there was texting all night long. (It made Bono's call for cell phones during One look pitiful. ) Being 27 and the only person outside of high school that was not a chaperone, I felt totally out of it, yet happily so. And before anyone says anything, YES I went to see Ashlee Simpson and I'm not afraid to admit it.

Predictive text is brilliant.

I love it when you say MOBILE like that, Angie
