Mobile Phone

When did you get your first mobile phone? Do you use a mobile or do you still have a land-line house phone? I haven't had a land-line for 10 years. I don't see the point in having one, any more. What mobile phone do you prefer?
My husband had his first car phone in 1987. It was such a novelty.
My daughter got her first, when we returned to the US. She was working until after dark and I felt more at ease knowing she had one. Looking back it seems so large and cumbersome. It looked something like this:
I now have another Blackberry that was my daughter's. This is how it works: she gives me her old phone when she gets the latest and greatest. I'm on my 3rd "hand-me-down". 

I'm just glad to have one. It is my security blanket. I feel really naked without it. I have turned around and gone home for it when I've forgotten it. I don't use the internet features, as she does, but then I'm never too far from from my Mac.

 Here is a great old film of the "first mobile phone".

That was a cute piece of film.
I didn't get a mobile phone until 2001, when I needed one for work. I use a Blackberry now and wouldn't trade it for any Iphone. It is the best!

Growing up, we never had cell phones. Yet, when I leave the house, I panick if I don't have it. Just think, I was a 20ish girl living in AZ (before it was so populated) driving 60 miles a day across the desert on 2 bad tires without a phone! It's a wonder I survived!

LOL we were watching a movie over the weekend, and the characters were using flip phones. I don't think my 14 year old remembers them!
