Had the cell phone stripped away! lmaoo additionally i had a lame flip phonee Log in to Reply Had a flip phone at 13 and never used it. Kept it in my glovebox when I got a car and didn’t take it out till 2016. Graduated community college at 21 (changed major) before getting an iPhone SE in 2016. When I graduated my family had to leave to change my nephew’s diaper and I had no idea where they were until I got in my car, plugged in my dead flip phone and saw 4 missed calls. Didn’t upgrade until I got stimulus money in 2020 and picked up the SE2020 I’m typing this on. Might upgrade in 2024 or 2025 Log in to Reply Nokia brick phone at 14, for emergencies only Log in to Reply None until I was 20 Log in to Reply Lol, guess my age https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8c/Modern_Chatter_Telephone.jpg Log in to Reply My first ever cellphone was a Motorola StarTAC. I was 30. Still kinda growing up…I guess? Log in to Reply Most people didn’t have a cell phone until they were 18, since I had an early bday in highschool I was one of the cool ones with a Nokia playing snake. Log in to Reply I got the Nokia brick when I was fifteen. Log in to Reply We had a Motorola 120t. It was a family cell phone that we bought for a road trip and I basically only carried it when I was driving when I was 16. When I was 18, I had my first date with my husband on a Friday and things were fun and fine. On Monday at work, he brought me flowers and said he thought he might’ve upset me somehow because he’d called my cell a couple times and I didn’t answer. But back then it was just plugged into the wall unless someone needed it for something so I’d just totally missed them. Pretty wild to think about not looking at my phone for a whole weekend now! Log in to Reply I got my first cell phone after graduating from high school. It was an LG flip phone. I later purchased myself the EnV2 – boy I loved that phone. Even after years of smart phones, I still think fondly of that thing. Log in to Reply I grew up in the 90s so not much tech. Started with the good ol nokia 3310. I was 10 or 11 Log in to Reply What??? I was just excited when our phone wasn’t on the wall. And I was wearing an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. Log in to Reply 14 I had the Moro razor flip phone in black no texting. Then at 17 I got one of those cool side sliders with the full QWERTY keyboard and I thought I was hot sh*t back then. Log in to Reply I had a Nokia 3310, one of the basically indestructible ones. I thought it was so dope it had snake on it. I was probably 16.. Log in to Reply When I got my driver’s license at 18, my parents gave me a Kyocera bar phone – limited minutes, no texting, monochrome black/green screen Log in to Reply My first mobile phone was an iPhone 5, and I was in my mid 30s? I resisted getting a mobile for ages because I’d lived for a long time perfectly well without one. Log in to Reply Growing Up? We once rented a [Motorola Bag Phone](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_bag_phone) when we drove to Florida. I didn’t have a cell phone until after college, and it was Nokia 3110. Log in to Reply The very first cell phone that I had was a Kyocera phone that I shared with my twin brother. We had that for about a year and a half before each of us got our own phones.
