2002. I was 65.
Hello Cool Spot,
Like Didge, I was well along into my majority...first mobile phone was the spring of 2012, and I was not quite 68 years old then.
I cant remember my age but it looked just like this kind of cell phone.
Its fate met by a small puddle. RIP flip phone.
I got my first phone back in 2007. I had turned 18 when my dad bought me my first phone. It is actually an interesting story. I wanted a phone for a long time and my dad believed it was soon for me to have one. I failed geometry several times at school and my dad promised me to buy a phone if I passed LOL:-D I got a 10.50 and passed it finally and my dad kept his promise:-D I was terrible at geometry:))
I got my first phone back in 2006 .. And I'm not telling how old I was. But I wasn't a teenager! Lol Many of us lived our entire lives without a cell phone up to that point ..
I'm guessing that I got my first one around 2000. I bought 4 of the Nextel rugged phones for the guys on my construction crew. They had the click to talk feature which was very handy while working. They were pretty big and weighed a ton.
back in 96 or 97 iwas old
Year 2000, it was bought for me by a friend. A Nokia similar to Tigers.
I got my first one in the late 90's. Motorola flip phone with an antenna you had to pull up first.
I got one while i've been nearly 14 or 15, i'm 20 now, so it's like few years i'm using decent phone (by decent i don't mean by price i mean by using it in a real way not playing Clash of clan or something)
I'm proud of that tho! Got it when it started to feel necessary with no drama. I'm not a fan of many of today's spoiled mobile productions either. I guess in a near future, we buy a phone and it's as big as a LCD.
Last year, I hated it though so I bought a SmartWatch.
1998, my wife insisted I get one for when I was fishing. If I had a problem with my heart, I could call for help. Must have been 3 or 4 years before anyone knew the number. I never called anyone on it.
2016 and I am 70.
I was 38 and the year was 2000. I actually bought for my husband because he traveled quite a bit in areas that didn't have a lot of civilization. I wanted him to be able to call for help. I kept it with me when he wasn't traveling. It was a Keyocera Qualcomm.
I got my first when I was 10, in 2005. It was a flip-phone.
I got my first phone back in 2012 because that was the first time I went to an engineering camp out of state by myself. It was a flip phone from Tracfone.
I now still use a Tracfone phone but a different kind of phone since I lost the flip phone the following year during a school field trip. I have yet to get a smart phone haha! But with wifi being so common nowadays, my iPod Touch is sufficient enough.
Mine was a Sony Ericsson back in 2001. My dad bought a four phone plan so that my sister and I could get a hold of my mom or dad no matter what. (We had just found out about my sisters Leukemia and I was driving back home from work late at night in a broken car on a desolate road.) It just made since to my dad. Hay I STILL have the same phone number to! LOL!
2003, and I was 56.
2003 I got a blackberry paid for by my employer.... I never wanted a cell phone then and now I'm addicted to my iPhone. My ex employer is a pusher then .. Cos I said so.
I got my first one in 1995.
2016, i was 11
